Profile: Crossway Community Montessori School aims to cultivate every child’s own natural desire to learn; we aim to cultivate curious, compassionate, self-directed, socially responsible citizens who work collaboratively, respectfully, and peacefully as interdependent learners in a diverse intergenerational community. Grounded in Maria Montessori’s theory of human development, each Montessori classroom supports each child’s development according to his or her readiness. Each child is free to explore within a specially prepared environment and with the guidance of the Montessori-trained teachers, or “guides.” Designed to be beautiful, orderly, and calm, each classroom is a community of peaceful, purposeful, and developmentally appropriate activity.

Mixed-age classes provide a real-world experience for the developing child, as peers learn from one another and work together to maintain their community. Within an environment that intentionally balances freedom and responsibility, children learn to recognize the needs of others while also developing life-long skills of persistence, critical thinking, and independence.
