Grades: PK - K | 2 students
At Bright Star Montessori school, we offer educational programs for two year olds through kindergarten designed to nourish the growing child.
In addition to our academic program, we develop the social, problem solving and critical thinking skills of your children for a life time of success.
Core values are an important part of what we practice in your children's educational community.
Our approach is based on a graduated series of successful discoveries.
The results yield integrated adults who are life long learners capable of reaching their full potential.
The Bright Star classroom allows the children to move, touch, manipulate and explore.
It gives them the freedom to choose their own work according to their interests.
Most of the materials are self-correcting and build the child's confidence as challenges are mastered.
In our environment children learn to work independently based on their own initiative.
This leads to self confidence, concentration and a love of learning.
