North Pole Montessori’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, 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.
“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!!
We are excited to spend the week discovering science! Drop off line will be open 8:45-9:00am and pickup line will be open 2:45-3:00pm. Camp ends Thursday afternoon and no lunch program will be offered this week.
The time for our 2020-2021 is quickly approaching and we have secured a new, larger location!!! We are offering in-person learning for both Our Children’s House (preschool) and Lower Elementary programs (ages 2.5-9 years). We do have very limited spaces available in Children’s House and a handful of Lower Elementary spaces available. Please contact the school via email or phone 907-750-5210 to discuss your child. We are excited to expand in North Pole and continue sharing the amazing opportunities the Montessori educational method can provide!
