Creative Montessori Academy

Our Mission

Our Mission at CMA is:

  • To create a strong, constantly evolving, mutually supportive partnership with parents, families, the community, and the teachers as facilitators for the purpose of maximizing every child’s academic and personal growth.
  • To provide a development-appropriate, child-centered environment for children that:
    • Moves from concrete experiences and cognitive achievement to abstract concepts
    • Fosters inner discipline, self-confidence, independence and respect for the ability levels of all
    • Encourages imagination and joy in learning
    • Employs multi-age activities, with teachers serving as the “guides” for the learning experience
  • To encourage respect for, and understanding of, cultural, racial, spiritual and economic diversity.
  • To offer a quality Montessori program as an educational alternative in the south Wayne County region.

Our School Is Based On The Montessori Philosophy:

  1. Children are to be respected as different from adults and as individuals who are different from one another.
  2. Children create themselves through purposeful activity.
  3. We must nurture the whole child and not just teach a body of knowledge.
  4. Students learn through exposure to many resources and through hands-on activities.
