HHMS Mission Statement

Helping Hands Montessori Services is a local business designed to help parents, teachers and schools in their efforts to provide the best possible care to the children in our community. I offer a variety of services for parents to incorporate Montessori Philosophy through purposeful activity into the home. This allows the child to participate in every aspect of the home life and promotes an authentic approach to the child. We meet the sensitivities of your child(ren) which helps to provide an opportunity for the child to live naturally in the home.

The mission of HHMS is to share and deepen the knowledge of Maria Montessori’s philosophies in order to promote self-reliance and independence in young children. We want to help families build a bridge from the home environment to the school environment. Our ultimate service is to aid the child in reaching their greatest potential.

When you get that response as a teacher you know it’s a good day.
