About Chisel Montessori
Chisel encourages children to explore their personalities and discover their unique talents. With the guidance of dedicated Montessori adults, young minds have the time and freedom to understand themselves. We keep children engaged both indoors and outdoors with exciting activities using natural materials, considering their developmental phases. This allows them to have a sense of freedom within boundaries, focus better, and nurture their social interests.
In this interconnected learning system, every child learns by observing their elder peers and guiding the younger ones simultaneously. In an atmosphere of trust, respect, and meeting each child’s needs, we empower them to become motivated learners who can evaluate their progress and grow at their own pace.
Our vision is to provide children with a secure and joyful learning environment that embraces the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori. We aim to foster personal and academic growth, independence, confidence, and a sense of responsibility for themselves and the community as a whole.
We are dedicated to offering a comprehensive Montessori education that spans from birth to 18 years and beyond, ensuring a complete continuum of learning for children.
At Chisel, we are dedicated to providing a child-centric program that celebrates each child’s individuality and empowers them to explore their inherent talents. Our team of highly committed Montessori educators offers a nurturing space where young minds are given the freedom and opportunity to truly discover themselves. With a keen understanding of the sensitive periods in a child’s development, we curate engaging activities using natural materials, both indoors and outdoors. This creates an environment that allows children to move within boundaries, enhances their concentration abilities, and fosters a genuine interest in social interactions.
Through our carefully crafted co-dependent system, children learn by observing their older peers and, in turn, guiding their younger counterparts. We firmly believe in trusting, respecting, and adapting to each child’s unique needs, encouraging them to become self-motivated learners who can assess their progress and grow at their own pace. Join us at Chisel as we embark on a remarkable journey of empowering children to unlock their full potential and become lifelong learners.
