For the last 30 years, Arbor Montessori School is a vibrant learning community in the heart of Sammamish, where children are empowered to discover their unique potential through an authentic Montessori approach that nurtures their natural curiosity, independence, and love of learning in an academically stimulating and multicultural program.
Arbor provides nurturing education to children ages 15 months through 12 years. At each level, from Toddler through 6th Grade, the curricula and classrooms are designed to respond to the developmental characteristics of each particular age group.
Guided by credentialed Montessori Teachers, cooperative experiences in multi-age groupings are a feature of the Montessori environment. Dr. Montessori’s theory that a mixed age classroom community enhances the child’s learning and helps achieve both success and happiness for each student finds increasing support in current research. Studies show that younger children in the group gain through their observations of and interactions with the older child’s advanced skills. Additionally, the older children restructure and solidify their acquired understanding as they participate with the younger ones.
At Arbor Montessori School, we have created a unique environment staffed with dedicated people committed to inspiring each student to develop to his or her greatest potential.
