Campus & Facilities: Our School is Designed for Montessori
Crabapple Montessori School was custom designed and constructed in 2002 specifically for the Montessori curriculum. The campus is conveniently located in the Crabapple area of Alpharetta, Georgia near Roswell, Milton, Canton, Woodstock, and Cumming in north metro Atlanta.
The spacious classrooms have areas for specific types of developmental activities. All around the room at any time children are engaged in different activities that match their interests and their place on the learning continuum. However, the layout of the room allows teachers to closely observe each child’s progress, giving guidance for following a path of development and mastery. The rooms are also constructed to allow observation by parents and staff.
Built-in shelving and storage helps to organize and display the many hands-on learning materials that are integral to the Montessori curriculum.
Every classroom is bright with natural light from windows and a door that opens onto a garden for exclusive use of that class. Children tend the plants and learn the importance of caring for other living things.
The concept of a prepared environment is central to the intellectual development of the child, and having a school designed for this methodology is an important advantage for the Crabapple Montessori School.
