Learn more about Montrose Early Childhood Center.

Mission

We work to establish an environment where students model respect, responsibility, caring, honesty and citizenship for each other. Every student is empowered to become a leader and actively influence his/her school. Our faculty and staff are committed to the ideals of a professional learning community that is well versed in developmentally appropriate practices.

Academics

Montrose uses the "Tools of the Mind" curriculum which is based on the educational theories of Lev Vygotsky. Play is the central teaching tool of the curriculum, which focuses on providing children the tools they need to develop academic and self-regulation skills (Bodrova & Leong, 1996). Since all of the classrooms are multi-age, the curriculum allows each student to develop at his or her own pace while still being taught the needed skills to become life-long learners.

Programs

After school services are provided by the local YMCA. The program is housed in our school building.

Teachers

Our faculty and staff are committed to the ideals of a professional learning community. Our intentions are always to engage every student in rigorous relevant learning experiences.

Parents

The PTA provides donation of materials and resources, volunteerism, school beautification projects, cultural assemblies, and social events for our families.
