The mission of The Blue Ridge Montessori School is to aid children in the task of self-construction in a nurturing environment. In the spirit of Dr. Maria Montessori, we promote peace, concentration, creative problem solving, order, and independence. Social, emotional and academic growth is encouraged in a developmentally appropriate learning environment. Respect for the child and all living things, is at the heart of all we do.
Blue Ridge Montessori’s philosophy is based on the belief that education is more than just a search for intellectual skills. It is a preparation for life. It is our goal at Blue Ridge Montessori School to provide an environment that assists the children in every aspect of their development, intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally.
BRMS In Action!
The age span within the classes provides a family-like setting. More experienced children share their knowledge while reinforcing their own learning. This peer group learning generates conversation and provides more language experience than a conventional preschool setting.
After attending another school, Blue Ridge Montessori School has reignited my son's spark for love of learning. We are so thankful for the staff at BRMS!
BRMS has been a great foundation for my children. They have learned how to interact with others and to work independently which has helped them build confidence in themselves. We love the caring staff and are excited for our 3rd child to start soon.
The BRMS Nido Program: staff makes a concerted effort to nurture the baby as well as encourage baby's development. They also meet the mother and father where they are in their parenting journey, rather than setting a standard all parents must meet. It is a very sincere childcare effort and it is heart-warming. Regarding the Primary Program, we love the independence children are given to choose their activities as opposed to directed classroom learning.
