Educational philosophy and administration

Learning In Motion Academy describes itself as a “specialty school” blending Montessori and traditional teaching methods to achieve “a balance between teacher-directed and child-directed activities,” resulting in a well-rounded education for children. Such methods create “a child-centered, high energy learning environment that allows thinking and learning to be anchored by movement.” The school’s curriculum emphasizes children’s “intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development” and is weaved in through the exploration the child’s environment, preliminary phonological and reading skills, and motion techniques. Parents appreciate that the school keeps them updated about their child’s learning experience via a daily schedule, a weekly class plan, and an end-of-week newsletter. Parents also like the LIMA’s outdoor and hand-on learning activities. Parents describe Learning In Motion Academy’s director, Megan Clotfelter, as “an amazing director who really communicates with parents” and “really does wear a million different hats and wears them well.” Parents state that “the teachers are awesome, caring and attentive” and value the low teacher turnover, with one family noting that teachers “love the school just as much as the parents do” and “really know how to make learning fun.”
