Dr. Maria Montessori, the Italian pediatrician and founder of the Montessori philosophy, believed that children possess an intrinsic desire to explore, discover and learn about their environment. By situating the schools in a Healthcare facility, CHM extends this philosophy to further develop the whole child.
In our schools, daily interactions between students, residents and Healthcare staff underscore the value CHM places on community. In addition, CHM and Healthcare staff arrange special intergenerational programs that engage and delight all of those involved.
The result: CHM students develop the confidence to engage in new settings with a diverse group of people. They possess a healthy, caring view of our wider community.
