Londonderry Montessori School Expands

Just one year since coming to Londonderry last fall, Southern NH Montessori Academy (SNHMA) announces the first wave of their expansion plans. Beginning this fall, they add Preschool for children ages three and four to their programs. SNHMA currently offers kindergarten and lower elementary (grades 1- 3) with plans to add upper elementary (grades 4-6) and middle school to meet the needs of their student base.

Debra Hogan, SNHMA Founder and Director, expressed, “We received numerous inquiries throughout the school year requesting that we expand our programs to include Early Childhood (preschool for three and four year olds). Many are looking for an environment tailored specifically to meet their child’s growing learning appetite. Our highly individualized environment is a perfect match for these for emerging learners”.
At SNHMA, children learn at their own pace, never constricted nor inhibited by the pace of their peers. Children’s learning is guided through hands on and experiential activities, engaging all of their senses to aid them in acquiring and retaining skill and knowledge.

Focus is given to all aspects of the child’s development, not exclusively their academic growth. Shepherding their social, emotional and physical growth as well, is a priority. SNHMA’s mission is to guide their students in their development of life skills, like: independence, confidence, conflict resolution, creativity, and compassion.
Throughout early August, SNHMA is scheduling appointments for school tours and complimentary education development screenings. While space is limited, a few openings remain. Regardless of your child’s age, it’s not too early to visit us. In addition to our current school enrollment, we have many families that have asked for us to reserve placement for them for 2011. You are encouraged to schedule a visit, tour our facility, meet our staff, and learn about our programs and growth plans.

Southern NH Montessori Academy offers an academically focused education to children from age three through nine through an integrated curriculum. Concentration is given to educating the “whole child” (all facets of the child’s being, including: intellectual, physical, emotional, social and creative aspects) with a strong emphasis of hands-on and experiential learning where children develop their passion in technology, science, visual and performing arts, foreign language and physical education.
