Montessori School Children From Forest Bluff School

 

Forest Bluff School is governed around the question of ‘what is best for the child’ from a developmental learning and social perspective. This helps to maintain the focus and energy of the community on how to best help each child reach his/her full human potential, and lends itself to a culture of simplicity and clarity of purpose. Forest Bluff School is a small, supportive community where parents and teachers work closely together to support each child’s unique developmental and learning journey. The Parent Infant/Child Series, Continuing Education evenings, morning Coffee/Discussions, and close relationships between parents and teachers are all geared toward providing easy to understand, actionable information on how to support children through their distinct planes of development.
