Montessori at Franklin

District-Wide Elementary

Principal's Corner
Welcome To All Students, Parents, and Guardians!

We hope you are all just as excited as we are to work together to offer encouragement and support for your child during this school year, and as a result see academic and social growth in your child.

We believe that a strong partnership between families and staff is essential to inspire, challenge and empower our students! We need your support to assist your child in attending school regularly and on time. We invite you to play an active role in your child’s education. Ask questions, come to events and show your child that school and learning are the keys to success! 

The Montessori approach to education embraces individualized instruction for children, mixed-age groupings, a structured curriculum, and a prepared environment using specialized Montessori teaching materials. The Montessori classrooms allow children to move, touch, manipulate, and explore the specifically designed learning materials with both direct and indirect teaching to foster their journey from the concrete to the abstract. The approach to language emphasizes spoken language patterns. Written language includes the introduction of the 26 letters and their sounds, along with other natural exposures to writing and written materials. Since Montessori education is based on the inner motivation of the child, it is the teacher’s role to work with this motivation in ways that will enhance each child’s learning experience. Parent and guardian involvement is an important part of the Montessori program. To arrange a tour, call our office at 507.328.3300.
