Just a short drive from Reston, Virginia, Brooksfield Montessori School offers a private Montessori preschool program, a full-day Kindergarten and a Montessori elementary program. In every classroom in this bright, brilliant, warm school, the children are respected and taught to respect. The Montessori Method focuses specifically on respect for self, respect for others and respect for environment. As such, Brooksfield’s students take pride in learning to wash their hands properly, brush their teeth and prepare their own snacks. In respecting their surroundings, they are given lessons in table washing, floor sweeping, crumbing, window washing etc. And, out of respect for each other, both children and adults use manner words such as please, thank you and excuse me regularly. The children take delight in all of these wonderful activities and enjoy being a part of their classroom community.
