About Us


MISSION/VISION

We are the only public Montessori school in Oklahoma, and we are excited to lead the way in providing accessible Montessori education to all children.

THE MONTESSORI METHOD

Our classes are learning laboratories where our students explore, discover and select their own work as we know student choice is important to create engaging learning experiences and building independent learners. Our Montessori classrooms include multiage groupings to foster peer learning, uninterrupted blocks of work time, guided work choices and specifically designed Montessori learning materials. In addition, we place an emphasis on cultivating leaders of the future who live with integrity and show gratitude, demonstrate persistence, excel and respect and help others and the environment. 

CHILD-CENTERED ENVIRONMENT

We strive to have every classroom at Emerson be a child-centered environment, where children learn by doing through self-motivation, independent work and self-correcting. This method differs from traditional, teacher-centered learning environments where the teachers set the pace for the class, choose curriculum and guide children on what to learn. We believe this approach emphasizes self-control and self-discipline for the child and inspires children to work out of joy, curiosity and love of learning. A child-centered environment focuses on creating lifelong learners and self-motivated adults instead of test takers.
