Montessori Studies

Montessori helps transform children through a series of developmental periods. The focus of Montessori education changes continuously with the needs and interests of each child. Learners are prepared for life in an educational and social environment where each child is challenged to become self-motivated learners by developing qualities of self-worth, order, concentration, coordination and independence.

Admission Requirements

"We selected Border Star because our children had attended a daycare that followed the Montessori method and we believed it would be a good transition for them. We also were impressed by the independence given to students and the warmth that we felt while touring the building.”
