Timeless Teachings in a Changing World
At Aspire Montessori School, we call our teachers guides. They are lead by a trained and overseen by a Montessorian to assure their pedagogy, practice, and preparation of dynamic learning environments encourage each child to reason, to cooperate, to collaborate, to negotiate, and to understand. Each guide’s goal is to guide the development and competency of the individual child by serving as the facilitator for learning. The guide is the child’s link to the environment, someone who gives a lesson and steps back to allow the child to work while observing and directing each child forward to the next appropriate material and key educational experience. Children operate within a balanced structure of freedoms and responsibilities, free to follow their inspirations with work that stimulates and satisfies their inner motivations while remaining responsible for tackling challenging and difficult work head-on. This balanced structure of freedoms and responsibilities is created and maintained through the ongoing observations, inspiration, and redirection of the classroom guides. The Montessori curriculum is organized as a continuum with one step building precisely on the previous one. The concept of mixed ages promotes an atmosphere of cooperation, teamwork, and peer teaching. The design of the materials and the structure of the tasks lead children to the development of self-discipline.
Below are two videos of that explain Montessori Teaching and what we aim to provide. Please consider donating Montessori supplies to our program through our wish list link.
Kinder Dance & Gym
Kinderdance® is the original worldwide dance, motor development, gymnastics and fitness program that combines academic readiness skills which are specifically designed for children. What makes Kinderdance® unique is that all of our programs incorporate educational concepts in a developmentally designed curriculum that teaches to the total child. We place special emphasis on building “Self Confidence” and “Self-Esteem” in young children.
We have a ballet/tap class and a gymnastics class that both meet once per week at school for 30 minutes each. You can see more information, pictures and also register for class at
