Here, we believe that first years of life are the most important. There is no time when a person experiences more cognitive, social and emotional growth.
The Roots of Confidence
Not only are children developing the intellectual skills they need for academic success, they are developing the patterns of independence, confidence and a relationship to the world that will forever influence who they are.
At Evergreen, we provide each child with enriched experiences, paced to his or her level, that build the foundation for a lifetime of achievement and confidence. How do we do it? By using proven Montessori methods.
Respect for the Learner
At its core, the Montessori approach respects the child as the center of the learning process. It holds that children are natural learners, and their curiosity is the engine of learning. Children have choice in their work and can follow their interests.
Here, teachers present materials designed to introduce a concept or skill, and children engage in learning by doing. Every activity is hands on. And every activity is specifically selected for the unique ability and needs of each child. Short of personal tutoring, you will not find a more individualized program anywhere.
The Wisdom of Experience
We are unabashedly proud of the expertise of our seasoned faculty. Nowhere will you find a more experienced and passionate group of Montessori teachers. More importantly, it is their kindness, warmth and generosity of spirit that makes the greatest difference for each student.
Our commitment to the ideals of equity, diversity and social justice are reflected in all aspects of our program. We boast of the broad diversity reflected in our community. With over 31% of our families coming from outside the US and 54% children of color, we are the most diverse school in the Association of Independent Maryland Schools.
A Multidimensional Education
Our comprehensive program offers fulfilling experiences in music education, physical education, nature studies, library and art. Our full-featured campus supports a full range of opportunities. From our gym to our music room, award-winning playground and more, we have beautiful spaces for learning and play.
