International Montessori Academy

Tel: (626)792-4505
Grades: K | 64 students
The International Montessori Preschool is found in a ranch-style home on a shady, half-acre lot situated amidst the five campuses of the Claremont Colleges.
Unlike most traditional classrooms, in which teachers impose lessons upon a group of children organized by age, Montessori creates an environment in which the teacher plays the role of facilitator as each child satisfies his or her own inherent urge to learn and develop.
Further, as Montessori does not segregate children by age, older children share their skills and knowledge with younger ones.
This not only acts as an important motivator, as the younger ones emulate their more advanced peers.
It also serves to develop crucial social skills as well.
In short, Montessori teaches children how to learn.
Through Montessori they discover that the will, ability and skills to learn are inside each of them rather than provided externally.
And in so doing, it helps provide a foundation of self confidence and esteem that can serve them for the rest of their lives.
