The Montessori preschool has become the premiere private preschool due to the carefully prepared environment and the carefully trained educator; both which recognize that young children develop and learn in different ways and can accommodate all learning styles.
Montessori classrooms are beautifully crafted environments designed to meet the needs of children in a specific age range. Dr. Maria Montessori discovered in the early 1900’s, that experiential learning in this type of classroom led to a deeper understanding of language, mathematics, science, music, social interactions and much more.
Dr. Montessori also observed that children were not given the respect they deserved. Montessori taught us to deeply respect children, not interrupting when they are concentrating, allowing them to discover their own mistakes rather than pointing them out, and observing the behavior without judgment.
Every material in a Montessori classroom supports an aspect of child development, creating a match between the child’s natural interests and the available activities. Children can learn through their own experience and at their own pace. They can respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for life-long learning.
A Montessori classroom is like no other preschool or daycare! Montessori classrooms are beautiful, peaceful, thoughtfully planned environments which will help your child develop the foundational attitudes, skills and ideas that are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.
Research has shown that Montessori preschool students acquire a superior preparation for elementary school. They score well on early standardized tests, but have also acquired superior skills in listening attentively, following directions, asking provocative questions and showing enthusiasm for learning.
