The importance of community has been an essential component at East Cooper Montessori Charter School. The Montessori classroom community is unique from any other early learning setting. Children are challenged to collaborate and contribute to class life, meaning every individual is important to the community. Our Montessori classrooms provide an inclusive, safe environment, where students feel they belong and can grow, surrounded by peers and teachers whose goal is to help them thrive. This ultimately nurtures children’s social and emotional wellbeing.
