"The essence of childhood, of course, is play, which my friends and I did endlessly on streets that we reluctantly shared with traffic"

Friday, April 10, Good Friday

Northwest Montessori will be closed next Friday. Everyone have a wonderful long weekend!

NWM 7th Annual Science Fair...

The 2009 Science Fair was such a success! All of Ms. Ali's young scientists worked so hard, and were so excited to share their discoveries with their parents, friends, and fellow Austin scientists. We have always operated under the belief that instilling a love of science in students from a young age not only paves the way for future success, but also nurtures every child's natural instinct to discover and explore. We are so proud of everyone!

Some of our scientists even made it onto the news. Check them out at My Fox Austin.

Why the Montessori Method?...


Of all the gifts that we receive in life, encouragement seems to be one of the greatest. It often makes the difference between failure and success, between giving up and pushing through. The simplest words of encouragement may seem small, but this kind of attention enables children to learn joyfully with confidence in their own innate potential. And once they have that kind of confidence they can continue learning and mastering without comparison and competition with their peers.
