Cochrane Valley Montessori School
The Montessori approach offers a broad vision of education as an aid to life. Montessori education is designed to help children with their task of inner construction as they grow from childhood to maturity. It succeeds because it draws its principles from the natural development of the child. The inherent flexibility allows the method to adapt to the needs of the individual, regardless of the level of ability, learning style or social maturity. Each child’s unique personality is encouraged; each child is respected as an important member of the community. Cochrane Valley Montessori School was established to carry forward the wishes of families who are currently pleased with their Montessori experiences within the surrounding areas or are looking to provide their children with an experience that is different from the current offering of a public school setting. We have been in the community center in Bragg Creek for 2 years and are looking forward to moving into our new home the summer of 2015. The opportunity to create an educational center that will provide our communities with a unique vision for Montessori at many ages and stages of development will be an exciting endeavour.
