Lavonna Peterson Early Childhood Montessori School

  • Lavonna Peterson Early Childhood Schools is based on that of Maria Montessori as she developed her Children's Houses; placing emphasis on what she referred to as the "triad": the individual child, the prepared environment, and the teacher as the observer and a director.
  • This School uses Maria Montessori program. Dr. Maria Montessori believed that no human being is educated by another person.
  • He must do it himself or it will never get done.
  • A truly educated individual continues learning long after the hours and years he spends in the classroom because he is motivated from within by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge.
  • Dr. Montessori felt, therefore, that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate his own natural desire to learn.
