The Montessori director, is a skilled educator who has completed intensive Montessori training beyond completion of college degree. All teachers at Growing Miracles are Montessori certified. Consistent with the Montessori approach, the director and teachers serve as mentors to the children, providing the guidance and challenge to meaningful work. The primary goal of the Montessori director and teachers is to make the child independent.
This builds self-esteem and gives the student a tremendous skill base for problem solving, independent thinking, concentration and completion of tasks, and successful participation in leadership activities later in life. Teachers respect the child's need for self-accomplishment and use the tools of observation, patience, and judgment to know just when help is needed and when to allow a child to work on their own. Montessori students have the additional benefit of remaining with the same teacher for three years.
