Why Heartwood

Heartwood Montessori seeks to provide a nurturing and inclusive Montessori learning environment that allows for each child to follow their own journey of self-discovery.

Guided by the principles of the Montessori philosophy of human development, Heartwood provides a learning environment that allows for all children to take their place in the world as inquisitive, engaged, joyful, and empathetic community members.

At Heartwood, children will foster independence, build community, and become empowered by their work. By using time-tested, child-centered Montessori methods, we’ll instill in them a spirit of grace, courtesy, helpfulness, compassion, and motivated action.  They’ll develop the same skills, attributes, and confidence that we proudly exhibit as Northeasters ourselves.

What you’ll find at Heartwood Montessori:

-an inclusive community where children are allowed to learn and explore at their own pace.

-a welcoming environment with beautiful materials that offer the child an opportunity to “learn by doing.” These carefully chosen materials help the child to build independence and feel success in their work.

-experienced, well-trained staff that are passionate about supporting each child on their individual journey. As adults, we set the tone for the child’s “psychological environment.” Carefully chosen words and actions help each child develop a positive sense of self and find their place within a social community.
