North Pole Montessori School’s mission is to provide an environment which is both safe and enjoyable for children in their early learning years.
Through the community built within North Pole Montessori School, we strive to provide a fun and safe environment using the Montessori Method and materials to support our educational philosophy. We encourage children to engage in an independent and self-paced exploration of the materials to build upon the child’s natural desire to learn. In doing so we are able to instill a love of learning which should travel well beyond the Preschool/Kindergarten/Lower Elementary years into the rest of a child’s educational journey.
The staff leads by example as they are trained in the educational necessity of meeting a child’s needs in the four categories of development; social, emotional, physical, and intellectual. This allows for the methodology and work of Maria Montessori in truly following the child as they explore and expand in their natural desire to learn. The staff is meant to work in the role of a guide rather than a teacher to better assist each child’s growth during their time in the program.
We are excited to announce a great community event being presented by North Pole Montessori School elementary students!!! Saturday, July 30th 9:00am we will be hosting a 1 mile kids color run right here in North Pole, Alaska! This event is open to all children and their families in the community. Registration is available here.
Enrollment is open for our coming school year!!! We are making a few changes to include a new start time of 8:45am and adding Upper Elementary (grades 4-6). All information regarding schedule and tuition is available under each respective tab. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a walk thru, please contact us!
“A” joined us as a first year lower elementary student for the 20-21 school year. She exudes kindness and is always willing to offer a helping hand. She is a born leader and is always excited to learn something new. We recently did a large group lesson discussing funding, fundraising, and project planning. Our fundraising efforts fell a bit short of our goal, but we were able to complete our project nonetheless. “A” showed her huge heart by bringing in some hard earned coins and a heartfelt card to donate to our funding ❤️ We appreciate her smile and kind heart and cannot wait to continue to watch her grow!!
