Why Turtle River Montessori?

Dr. Maria Montessori stated that children experience different stages of readiness, which creates windows of opportunity for learning. Neurological studies confirm that from conception to age 4, the individual develops 50% of their mature intelligence; from ages four to eight they develop another 30%.


This rapid growth of intelligence is critically influenced by the early environment and the importance of favorable conditions during these years cannot be over emphasized.


Early adolescents have different needs based on their brain development, which Montessori education recognizes and incorporates into its curriculum.


Turtle River Montessori embodies the philosophy of these unique cycles of learning, and our facilities are designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive and critical developmental stages. Classrooms are structured with custom-designed materials that are geared towards the size, pace and interests of the child to stimulate the natural desire to learn.Our classrooms are designed to accommodate a three-year age span, with the Primary beginning at three to six years, the Elementary from six to nine years, the Upper Elementary from nine to 12, and the Middle School from 12 to 15. Each classroom is lead by a fully trained Montessori teacher. There are full-time assistants in classrooms to keep the adult to child ratios between eight or nine students to one adult.
