At Blue River, our mission is to foster a love of learning in each child.  Our innovative, scientifically-based curriculum skillfully combines the Montessori method with the Reggio Emilia philosophy and weaves artistic and practical disciplines into everyday academics.  Students learn to follow their curiosity, to think creatively, and to work both independently and cooperatively with others.  To quote William Butler Yeats, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
