Our Guiding Principles at Sandwich Montessori

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”  —Maria Montessori


Creativity & Independence

When we follow the child, who knows how far they can lead us.

Positive Self Image

Each child is celebrated as an individual and is encouraged to share their unique perspective.

Enhanced Learning

Montessori is tried and true, brain-based education with a long and successful history.  Sandwich Montessori School further enhances learning by incorporating nature into our lessons, daily schedule, and plans.

Working together
and building community

In the multi age classroom, more experienced children often work with newer children which strengthens the school's community and their own understanding of a work.


Our Montessori Preschool Environment inspires students
of all ages to develop a life-long love of learning.

Rather than viewing children as recipients of the knowledge that adults could “teach” them, Maria Montessori viewed them as having an innate motivation to learn and a unique ability to develop their own capabilities. She created beautiful materials that children could manipulate to learn basic concepts, and devised a new way of teaching, one that respected the child’s pleasure in activity and desire for mastery.



Emphasizing Learning
through all five senses,

Children in Montessori classes learn at their own, individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from hundreds of possibilities. Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.
