Confidence
Compassion

All of our interactions with students, parents and our community are governed by the three virtues: confidence, compassion and respect. Our faculty and administration reflect these core values and impart them on our students every day.

Children are born creative, intelligent, and curious; our approach unleashes the child’s sense of wonder. Our goal is not to control, but rather to inspire children to foster a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. At the heart of Montessori lies a deep and profound respect for the child as a unique human being, who voluntarily learns and shows respect and thoughtfulness for themselves and others around them.

LIFE

Our students are part of a vibrant and inclusive community

The Brackendale Experience

The child is inspired not by the end result but by the actual task which requires imagination, intellect and creativity, gradually leading them to independence. We believe that while learning to read and write will get a child through school, it is more important to acquire the skill to think for themselves (learning how to learn) so they can succeed both in school and life.
