Why Seneca Village Montessori?

Seneca Village Montessori uses the Montessori Method, but is guided by an African Centered approach to teaching. An Afrocentric curriculum helps to provide our children with a strong sense of self while the Montessori approach allows for our children to learn through movement and activity while encouraging their creative spirit. Combining the two creates a “best of both worlds” scenario for our students.

African Centered Education

Seneca Village Montessori School’s foundation is built on the Nguzo Saba or the seven principles of Kwanzaa. We believe that the teaching of these principles and their message will help in the development of an Afrocentric value system for our students. Afrocentric values lead to Afrocentric goals, which lead to a new history for African people.

The Montessori Method

The Montessori method is a unique educational approach that nurtures a child’s intrinsic desire to learn. Montessori focuses on the whole child—her cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. Montessori is designed to help all children reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace.
