Our Philosophy

"We are a child's place, working at a child's pace."

At Bethlehem we see each child as a unique individual who develops at his/her own pace.  We base our philosophy on Montessori principles and provide a developmentally appropriate environment which allows each child to reach his/her full potential physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually.

We are dedicated to "following and nurturing the whole child" by:

  • Providing a calm, secure environment that supports children's emotional, social, physical, and cognitive development.

  • Promoting a first sense of community in an atmosphere of kindness and respect for self, others, and the environment.

  • Utilizing a curriculum which allows children to become actively engaged in their learning.

  • Offering developmentally appropriate hands-on materials and activities that are relevant to a child's needs and interests   "Children learn best by doing."

  • Laying the building blocks for a solid foundation of lifelong learning.
