It is the mission of Indian Harbour Montessori to provide a stimulating, respectful and harmonious environment based upon the philosophy of Maria Montessori. Children are encouraged, through thinking and reasoning skills, to conduct themselves as individuals in preparation for lifelong learning. We fully employ the Montessori Method to create a peaceful, natural, whole-child education that fosters joy, intelligence, self-confidence, and independence in children. We believe that growth is as individual as each child.
