A little history of how Sussex Montessori came to Seaford…
Sussex Montessori School is the realization of a vision held by the organization known as “Montessori Works”. “Montessori Works” is a school development organization founded to increase accessible, authentic, quality Montessori education in Delaware. Their board includes Montessori experts, educators, parents, and others who are working to make Montessori programs a more broadly available option in the public arena. Sussex Montessori School, while an independently governed public charter school, is grateful for the work of Montessori Works and looks forward to continued partnership as we bring public Montessori education to Sussex County, Delaware.
“Montessori Works” is making Montessori an option for more families by:
Expanding Montessori in the Public Sector by providing comprehensive school start-up support, including development of curriculum, policies and community connections; operations planning and support; and professional development and human resource assistance for districts and charters.
Increasing the Montessori Teacher Supply in Delaware by creating a Montessori Training program in partnership with the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector (NCMPS) and potential local university partners and focusing on dual-certification requirements for Montessori teachers and administrators in public schools.
Increasing Montessori Awareness by sponsoring seminars and other opportunities for communities to explore how children learn through Montessori.
Advocating for Pro-Montessori Public Policy by working with State legislators, Governmental Departments and Agencies, Non-Profit organizations and Education-Reform minded corporate citizens and community members.
