September 2011

"Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future."
-- Maria Montessori


We warmly welcome our new students and parents to the Northwest Montessori family and congratulations to the students who have moved up. We look forward to being part of your child's learning and growing.

Of course we miss our kids who have moved on to elementary school this year but we know they will carry out into the world the lessons and fond memories they gathered here at Northwest Montessori.
