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!
This past summer, we enrolled our daughter at Blue Ridge Montessori and I can't even begin to describe how fantastic this experience has been for her (and us!). With our full-time jobs, we never would've been able to give our daughter the socialization, education and one-on-one attention that she's gotten there over the past several months. She's learned about music, arts, new friendships, playtime and worktime, and developing so many other important skills each week.
This school has such a sincere caring staff! I love how much my son has already grown and matured in only the few months he has been here. He is excited when I drop him off and that makes me excited for him! Love this school!
We absolutely LOVE BRMS!!! Both of our little ones feel right at home, and the staff is always keeping us in the loop with how they are doing.
I can-not say enough good things about BRMS. They are so warm and inviting to the children and the families. I have no worries or doubts when I take my son there and as a first-time parent that is a wonderful feeling. The ladies in Weeping Willow are so sweet and my son gets so excited to see them, which fills my heart with happiness!
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.
