Berea Area Montessori Association (BAMA Montessori) was founded in 1965 by 7 families who knew the value of an early Montessori education for their preschoolers, and the school has grown to serve over 90 families, for children 18 months - 6 years (through kindergarten). Montessori education emphasizes an individualized approach, with children mixed in ages in the classrooms to free them to progress at their own rate; stresses the basics of respect for the child, materials, and others; and recognizes the need to nurture each child's natural curiosity and help them cultivate a desire for learning by using classroom materials designed to facilitate exploration and active involvement in the learning process. Home and school work together for the long-term benefit and development of the child. Child care is also available for our own 3-6 years students.
