Nov. 6, 2012 - PRLog -- Princeton Montessori School is accepting applications for the Nancy McCormick Rambusch Tuition Award, which covers up to 50% of the program fee for new students in second through sixth grades. Two merit-based awards will be given for students entering in September 2013, and then be renewed annually through eighth grade. Applications are available on the Princeton Montessori School website and should be submitted by February 15, 2013.

The award is named for Dr. Nancy McCormick Rambusch (1927–1994), who is credited with establishing Montessori education in the United States. She was the founding president of the American Montessori Society, and former director of the Princeton Center for Teacher Education at Princeton Montessori School, which trains teachers in the progressive educational philosophy and method established by Dr. Maria Montessori a century ago.

Dr. Rambusch trained with Maria Montessori herself in London, and was later named by Maria’s son, Mario, as the American representative to the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) headquartered in Amsterdam. She came to Princeton in 1992 as director of the Princeton Center for Teacher Education, which grants Montessori teaching credentials in three programs: Infant/Toddler, Primary, and Elementary. Along with Marsha Stencel, the current head of Princeton Montessori School, Dr. Rambusch initiated collaboration with the Ukrainian government that has brought Montessori education throughout its public schools.

Princeton Montessori School follows the Montessori educational philosophy, which espouses respect for the individual and community; fosters self-reliance and efficacy; develops intrinsic motivation; and ultimately enables each child to achieve his or her fullest potential. Children at Princeton Montessori are freed from the bureaucratic strictures of traditional education and instead encouraged to develop their innate abilities through self-directed activity under the guiding hand of fully trained, experienced teachers. Breaking down the artificial barriers between work and play, the curriculum at Princeton Montessori develops the whole child within a compassionate, supportive community working together in exceptional facilities.
