Hello Everyone-

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the recent inaugural Monte Carlo Night!  The generosity of our sponsors and donors cannot be overstated.  The hard work and perseverance of the planning committee, staff, and volunteers was phenomenal!  The participants rounded out a fun-filled evening!  It was a wonderful way to wind down the 41st year of Anchorage Montessori School.

 

Last year we celebrated the 40th anniversary of Anchorage Montessori School.

Philosophy

Dr. Maria Montessori’s system of education is both a philosophy of child growth and a rationale for guiding such growth, which has been consistently successful since 1907. This system is based on the child’s developmental need for freedom with limits and uses a carefully prepared environment. The prepared environment guarantees exposure to materials and experiences through which the child develops intelligence as well as physical and psychological abilities. The Montessori method is designed to take full advantage of the unique ability of young children to develop their own capabilities through self-motivation. Learn More
