Katie Wagoner and Summer Picha founded Peaceful Valley Montessori Academy (PVMA) in 2010 with the purpose of instilling in children the values of respect, responsibility, grace and courtesy, self-motivation, and self-discipline, culminating in character formation. Our Montessori program’s aim is to develop within the children a global vision, a life-long love of learning and a sense of responsibility toward humanity. All aspects of the Montessori experience come together to foster the development of integrated, committed, respectful, loving and caring human beings. PVMA is licensed for 24 children ages 33 mos-6 yrs.
Our Children’s House will follow the AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) standards. The AMI standard is a quality control, training and accrediting organization established in 1929 by Dr. Maria Montessori. All of our Guides have received AMI Diplomas, after a rigorous one-year course, which culminates in written and oral exams. Their knowledge of the developmental needs of the young child is unsurpassed.
At PVMA, we encourage an appreciation for the interconnectedness of all living things, giving back to the community, and the cultivation of harmony, honesty, social cooperation, compassion, generosity, and love. Parallel to this nurturing is a study of different cultures and their beliefs, emphasizing a deep respect for diversity. Study of cultures includes their history, traditions, religions, holidays, music, and symbols. PVMA does not promote the beliefs or practices of one culture or religion over another.
PVMA is an equal opportunity provider and accepts students ages 30 months through six years of age. Applications for enrollment are accepted without regard to race, religion, gender, national origin, or special needs.
