Tenbroeck Chimes

About Tenbroeck Chimes

We are committed to providing a prepared environment that encourages children to develop practical, intellectual, physical and social discipline.

The prepared environment with a trained guide promotes independence, self-discipline, confidence, and respect for a child’s personal and social life. Chimes strives to follow the educational philosophy and methods developed by Dr. Maria Montessori and provide an environment that encourages children to develop to their potential.

The Montessori education allows children to experience the joy of learning at an early age. Each child works and learns at his or her own pace, and according to his or her capacities in a non-competitive atmosphere.

Children of varying ages work together in the same environment, stimulating both academic and social growth. Except for infant/toddler groups (Ratio dictated by local social service regulations), the teaching ratio at Chimes is one-trained Montessori adult for (approximately) every set of 13 children. Rather than lecturing to a large or small group of children, the adult is trained to work with one child at a time and to oversee children working on an array of tasks.

Chimes is accredited and recognized by the Indian Montessori Center (IMC).
