Creating Individual Paths of Learning

Fostering a Path for Learning

Eagle Harbour Montessori classrooms provide a prepared environment where a student’s innate passion for learning is encouraged by giving them opportunities to make work choices under the guidance of a trained teacher. Through their work, the students develop concentration and self-discipline. Within a framework, the students progress at their own pace and rhythm, according to their individual capabilities.

Tailored to Your Child's Development

The transformation of children from birth to adulthood occurs through a series of developmental planes. Montessori practice changes in scope to embrace the child’s changing characteristics and interests.

The first plane of development occurs from birth to age six. At this stage, children are sensorial explorers, constructing their intellects by absorbing every aspect of their environment, their language and their culture.

From age 6 to 12, children become conceptual explorers. They develop their powers of abstraction and imagination, and apply their knowledge to discover and expand their worlds further.

The years between 12 and 18 see the children become humanistic explorers, seeking to understand their place in society and their opportunity to contribute to it.

From 18 to 24, as young adults, they become specialized explorers, seeking a niche from which to contribute to universal dialogue.
