Hatch House Montessori faculty are educated, experienced and qualified Montessori Educators committed to supporting and nurturing the development of the whole child. This, together with devotion to the fundamental principles set forth by Dr. Maria Montessori, and an informed, active and caring parent body, creates an affirming, purposeful and harmonious atmosphere.

Dr. Maria Montessori believed that teachers should focus on the child as a person, not on the daily lesson plan. Montessori teachers lead children to ask questions, think for themselves, explore, investigate and discover. Their ultimate objective is to help their students learn independently and retain the curiosity, creativity and intelligence with which they were born. Montessori teachers do not simply present lessons; they are facilitators, mentors, coaches, and guides.

Great teachers help students get to the point where their minds and hearts are open, leaving them ready to learn. In effective schools students are not so much motivated by getting good grades, but by a basic love of learning. Montessori teachers closely monitor their students’ progress. Because they normally work with each child for two or three years, they get to know their students’ strengths and weaknesses, interests and personalities extremely well. Montessori teachers often use the children’s interests to enrich the curriculum and provide alternate avenues for accomplishments and success.
