our mission

Darchei Noam Montessori’s mission is to create a Torah-centered environment where each and every child can learn and grow at their own pace, instilling a life-long love of learning.

Darchei Noam Montessori, a division of The Center for Innovative Jewish Learning, offers a safe & happy Torah-centered environment where every child succeeds at their own pace, instilling a life-long love of learning. We are a Torah school that uses integrated learning to create genuine, internalized Yiddishkeit.

Our classrooms are designed to be warm, welcoming and exciting spaces that are comfortable places for growth and development. They are a place that the children can feel belongs to them. In this arrangement, they will learn the concepts of sharing, building friendships, respect and self confidence in a strong and yet natural way. As a parent of a Darchei Noam student, you have the assurance that your child is in an environment full of love, safety, Torah, and positive energy.

Through use of the many materials children are able to build confidence, independence and a healthy self-motivation that is vital to learn and grow. Throughout the day children are met with realistic challenges that encourage thought, problem solving, social interaction and growth.
The Morah/Rebbi in the room stands more in a role of facilitator or director; gently guiding each child on the path in which they are comfortable.

Our vision is to create a community within the room amongst the facilitators and children, developing a sense of respect and responsibility. With this in place and continuing to grow, children can flourish as they find a place for themselves in this world in a way that is comfortable and nurturing. Utilizing these “community skills”, our children can directly change the world as they emerge with these qualities to build communities around the globe.
