Parent Experience Saturday, October 14th
Normalization is a term in Montessori education to describe a beautiful transformation.
Two activities that stand out in a Montessori environment are gardening and building. These hands-on experiences cultivate a love for nature and equip children with essential skills for the 21st century.
In a world of rapid change and new discoveries, we can only guess at the skills our children will need to succeed in the 21st century. This rapid change has prompted education programs to focus on the essential lesson of learning how to learn. Children will need to love learning and have the creativity to apply their understanding in many different situations. Our goal is to nurture your child's intelligence, self-confidence, personal creativity and independence, and to help them come to love learning as they begin to discover their true potential during the most important years of their education. Our slogan, “Shining Light on life building experiences!”, states our desire to create an environment full of experiences to help children develop in ways God has created them. Abner Montessori School offers students a world-class education based on the Montessori approach to learning by building on the understanding that children learn most effectively through direct experience and the process of investigation and discovery.

For more than a century, Montessori has been thriving around the globe, and contemporary research validates the effectiveness of the Montessori Method. Several key elements of the approach meet the educational goals today’s parents have for their children, including growing into capable people who will be have a strong sense of self, the ability to connect with others, and the potential to be productive throughout their lives. With Montessori, that growth starts early. (American Montessori Society)
The name Abner comes from the Old Testament in the Bible. In First and Second Samuel you will find that Abner was the chief officer of Saul's army. He was also present when David fought and defeated the giant Philistine warrior, Goliath. The name Abner means, "My father is a lamp." The name Abner provides the vision of a path being lit on a journey. We want to partner with you as we light the path for your child on their journey through the early education years. We use the sun (a source of light) in our logo and have adopted the slogan, "Shining Light on Life Building Experiences." We hope to be a source of light in the development of your child.
Monday to Friday: 6:30 am - 6:00 pm
