Little Miners Montessori was founded in 2001 with the intentions to cultivate a love of learning and provide an environment that nurtures each child’s individual process while connecting children to an educational and diverse community. LMM seeks to educate the whole child, applying the Montessori philosophy, in a family-oriented and child-centered environment. The philosophy is based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) whose holistic vision of education focuses on the cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs of the child. Our goal at Little Miners Montessori is to help our children develop a positive self-image, a sense of responsibility in diverse settings, and inner self-discipline. By use of the Montessori Method, we promote the intellectual, physical, and social development of our students. As children develop independence and self-confidence, they foster a lifelong love for learning. And just as important, our children learn to respect each other and develop a collective sense of affection and cooperation with each other, their families, and the community.
