Core Values

The guiding principles behind Wilmington Montessori School's 2013-16 Strategic Plan

Education for Life
“The child builds his innermost self out of the deeply held impressions he receives.”
- Dr. Maria Montessori

Joyful Environment for Children
"Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment."
- Dr. Maria Montessori

Individualized Learning
"Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentials."
- Dr. Maria Montessori

Teachers Who Focus on Children
"These words reflect the child's inner needs: 'Help me do it alone.'”
- Dr. Maria Montessori

Parent Partnership
"The child's parents are not his makers but his guardians.”
- Dr. Maria Montessori

Making a Difference
"The Child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope...hope for peace in the future."

“The child is both a hope and a promise for mankind.”
- Dr. Maria Montessori
