Meadow Montessori School’s Mission
We are committed to providing an innovative and academically challenging curriculum that empowers our students to be independent thinkers and future leaders.
Our Montessori private school in Richmond serves children aged 3 months through kindergarten by providing high quality early childhood education. We provide developmentally appropriate learning activities designed to develop the whole child – not just intellectually, but socially and emotionally as well. The program is dedicated to providing a creative curriculum that challenges young minds and develops today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders. The teachers at our Montessori private school in Richmond are highly qualified to guide children in Montessori philosophy and methodology.
Montessori educators provide students with a prepared environment. This type of environment nurtures the student’s natural curiosity while promoting creativity. Prepared environments encourage cooperative learning as the students work together to accomplish their goals. Materials, spaces, and equipment are specifically designed to support the individual child’s developmental learning stages while developing proficiency in Language and Math Skills, Integrated Cultural Studies, Sensorial Activities and Practical Life Exercises.
