About the Montessori School on Edgewood

The Montessori School on Edgewood provides early education and care to 24 infants and toddlers and 34 preschoolers at 230 Edgewood Avenue, New Haven, CT.  The program is licensed by the State of CT and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Mission Statement

The mission of the Montessori School on Edgewood (MSOE) is to provide a Montessori experience for children aged six weeks through five years.  Children attending MSOE will be responded to as individuals, looking for the strengths and needs of each child.

The Montessori Classroom

…as described by the American Montessori Society:

“In a Montessori environment, children learn by exploring and manipulating specially designed materials. Each material teaches one concept or skill at a time, and lays a foundation from which students can comprehend increasingly abstract ideas. Children work with materials at their own pace, repeating an exercise until it is mastered. The teacher may gently guide the process, but her goal is to inspire rather than instruct. Throughout the classroom, beautifully prepared, inviting curriculum areas contain a sequential array of lessons to be learned. As students work through the sequence, they build and expand on materials and lessons already mastered. And all the while they are developing qualities with which they’ll approach every future challenge: autonomy, creative thinking, and satisfaction in a job well done.”
