Since 1981, Discovery Montessori has been the school of choice for many Kitsap families. Discovery Montessori has established itself as an educational home for children, preschool thru 6th grade. At Discovery Montessori, we nurture your child’s growth and abilities as an independent learner using the Montessori Method.
Montessori education differs from conventional forms of education in the fact that lessons are given individually or in small groups. Instruction is based on the needs of the child, instead of lecturing to the entire class.
We observe your child's needs/interests and offer a curriculum that integrates practical life activities, sensorial development, mathematics, language, science, geography, biology, history, music, and art. In addition to academics, Montessori education also focuses on fostering self-esteem, respect for others, independence, self-discipline, cooperation, and love of learning.
At the school, students are active participants in their own learning. Through the use of Montessori materials and extensions that reflect the best practices of education, students grow into lifelong learners developing independence, respect and creativity in an environment that nurtures the spirit of the child. This prepares each child to be a contributing member of a diverse world community.
