Our Philosophy

We adopt and use the Montessori method.  Montessori teaching is a scientific way of being committed to laws of nature with children to support their true natural development. This distinctive new education first emerged from the scientific research and discoveries of Dr. Maria Montessori while observing young children in Rome, Italy in the early 1900’s.

Robbyn's Nest Education Center is committed to the development of the whole child by implementing curriculum and methodology based on the Montessori philosophy of education and human development, and by partnering with parents – children’s first teachers – in this endeavor.

Five Principle Goals

  1. To foster a life-long love of learning through teaching, across the curriculum, which demonstrates the interconnection of all life; and to foster the individual’s understanding of his/her role within the whole, through the development of individual potential.
  2. To structure hands-on learning environments which, while “making the match” w/ students’ needs and interests, foster student-initiated inquiry/research and projects which develop understanding and appreciation of the world beyond the classroom.
  3. To support each student – through individualized instruction based on observation and understanding of learning styles and abilities – to become an independent, responsible, self-disciplined and self-motivated learner who works to potential and loves it!
  4. To engage families in the education of their children through – but not limited to – dialog, education in child development and Montessori/School practice, ongoing communication, community events, joint planning to address evolving needs and circumstances.
  5. To educate children using the authentic Montessori approach—a multi-sensory curriculum that allows for individualized teaching and for students to learn and be challenged at their own pace as they develop academically. As a community that fosters self-confidence, leadership, and respect for self and others, Robbyn's Nest encourages students to grow as self-motivated, intellectually engaged learners who are accomplished students.

To Whom it May Concern,

    I took my son who was going into 7th grade over to Robbyn’s Nest for extra help in reading and math. Both teachers were amazing! They worked one to one and ended giving him so much confidence going into the seventh grade. It was so great to see. I highly recommend Robbyn’s Nest.
    Also, I recommend the Monthly LEGO club. My son also really enjoys it. 

Sincerely yours,
Meegan Buckley

Official Letter Of Recommendation

My daughter, 3 years old, started school at Robbyn's Nest Educational Center less than a year ago.  I had known of the Montessori method of teaching and wanted to give it a try.  I can honestly say Robbyn's Nest uses extraordinary methods that work.  I am extremely thrilled to see my daughter recognize actual words at 3 years old.  Robbyn's lessons are done in a fun way to keep the child engaged and repeated enough to help the child sustain the information learned.  My daughter every week is retaining more and more.  I am sure she is learning more at Robbyn's Nest than any other local preschool in the area.  I highly recommend Robbyn's Nest Tutoring and Learning Educational Center to any parent wanting more than a standard preschool for their child.  A safe, remarkable school!  You will be amazed at what your little one can learn every day.

For Robbyn German
Robbyn's Nest Tutoring and Learning Educational Center

Its with great pleasure that I express my impression and experience thus far with Robbyn's Nest Educational Center.  In the short time my twins have been enrolled they have already shown social and language development.  Ms. German's vast educational experience and individual attention to each child provide both a challenging and secure environment.  All materials and activities have an educational purpose and the children learn while having fun and playing.  Our kids look forward to school time and participate to our surprise very eagerly.  We feel very confident that Ms. German is helping our children blossom academically, socially and emotionally.  We considered some other preschools before deciding on Robbyn's Nest and feel it is the right fit for our family.  We are happy with our choice and highly recommend this school as a loving, safe, and academic environment for children.
