The students also extend this welcoming energy to anyone who walks through Sunny Hollow’s doors.
A sense of peace and welcome, a feeling of gratitude, and a sense of community are attributes that define and make Sunny Hollow Montessori a truly remarkable school. Visit our community and experience this feeling firsthand!
Sunny Hollow Montessori cultivates each child’s intellectual and creative potential, appreciation of relationships in nature and society, and sense of individual responsibility. We follow the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori as set forth by the Association Montessori Internationale.
Sunny Hollow Montessori is recognized as a leader in guiding children and their parents through a shared journey from infancy into adulthood — all on a foundation of respect, kindness and trust in the child’s potential. Sunny Hollow is dedicated to ensuring that each child sees her own possibilities and those of a peaceful world society, and takes an active role in pursuing both.
By holding the child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development in balance, we support and guide her toward the sweet spot of human potential and living her life to the fullest.
An environment of kindness and warmth aids in creating peace and harmony, essential to the growth of children, and contributing to the greater harmony on Earth.
Treating ourselves, others, and the environment with respect recognizes that we are part of a greater world and our success does not happen independently. We value the contributions of others both now and in the past, shaping our world and our experience. We recognize the impact our actions have on those around us, both now and in the future.
We achieve excellence in our work by employing diligence and craftsmanship, working within our limits while seeking to grow beyond them.
Bringing together people of different cultures, perspectives and experiences enhances the overall experience of our community and the education children receive.
