School Setting:

At Prairie View Montessori we believe that all children should have the opportunity to fully develop their potential. We also feel that education is most effective when it follows children’s development and when children are active participants in their learning, not passive recipients. Parents, teachers and community members must work together to accomplish this. Our first priority at Prairie View is to serve the children.

To this end, we have built a Montessori Children’s House.

Mission Statement:

Prairie View Montessori's primary mission is to serve children by offering interactive, dynamic learning environments, which meet their cognitive, physical, social and emotional needs. We seek to work in partnership with families to form a base of support for each child's success. Dr. Montessori's method is the foundation of our approach. We also support the view that education is not about memorizing answers, but about devising questions and developing the courage to take risks and stand by what you believe. Our goal is that all children leave Prairie View as confident, excited learners who think for themselves and respect the people and environment around them.

School History:

Prairie View Montessori is the realization of a dream to build an authentic Montessori Children’s House, custom-designed for children and built from ground up in a serene environment!

Building a new school is an enormous collaborative undertaking. As plans for Prairie View progressed, a team approach quickly developed extending in every direction - from faculty members from other schools, parents, and even former Montessori students were consulted regarding what they would like to see in a "new school" and how best the needs of children, parents and staff could be balanced.

This philosophical beginning helped clarify the priorities and mission statement of the school. It was decided to associate with the American Montessori Society. With these underpinnings in place, the staff committed themselves to working towards excellence in every area to ensure that Prairie View Montessori becomes and stays a very special place.
