Our Facilities Include:
Large, Open Classrooms
As you step into a Norbeck Montessori classroom you will immediately see and feel the difference. Each classroom is specifically designed to support active learning. A hallmark of Montessori learning is the focus on “hands-on” experience, and our variety of learning materials help teach children the values and habits of their environment. From the reading nook to the sensorial area, everything has been designed with the young child in mind. You won’t find the traditional set-up with rows of desks; our students work at child-sized tables or roll out mats on the floor. Here, everything is scaled to the child’s size, including furniture, shelves, utensils, and more.
Our classrooms hum with a level of noise that is productive, not chaotic. In our classrooms, children move freely throughout the environment, choosing activities that interest them. In true Montessori fashion, our students are the center of his or her own learning experience. At each level of their Montessori education, Norbeck students from our Transitional Two’s through Big K have an environment that is prepared specifically for their needs, growth, energy, and learning.
