We want children to experience the joy of learning (not to please adults) as it is only in this way that we help create adults who continue to learn and grow throughout their whole lives. Children are naturally curious; they are fascinated by the wonders of the world and they learn effortlessly from it, simply by existing in the environment.
At Turtle River Montessori, our mission is to spark that curiosity within each individual child, which creates excited, joyful learners. Instead of giving the child the right answers, we ask the right questions, leading them to discover the answers for themselves. A child’s ultimate discovery is their true potential as a human being.
