Welcome to Jefferson Montessori
Montessori is focused on teaching for understanding. In Jefferson classrooms, younger students receive the benefit of several years of sensorial and practical preparation for academic skills through work with concrete Montessori learning materials. This concrete experiences allow the child to form a mental picture of concepts like, "What adjective best describes me?", "How many hundreds make up a thousand?", and "What is really going on when we borrow or carry numbers in mathematical operations?".
