School Notes

  • Montessori Academy of Davison, owned by Madge Brown and directed by Jeannie Summers, has been in the area since 1978. They are devoted to helping children develop positive attitudes and effective learning habits.    The Montessori Method of education is a system for the education of children from birth to age 18. It is based upon principles developed by Maria Montessori, MD, throughout her life    The focus of this system is the development of materials, educational techniques and observations that support the natural development of children. The teacher in a Montessori classroom serves less as an “instructor” and more of a guide and facilitator. Children are encouraged to “learn how to learn”, thus gaining independence and self-confidence. Because this method is based on developmentally appropriate activities, the child learns through the process of education – by doing.    Montessori Academy of Davison is designed to accommodate varies stages of development in children ages 3 – 6 years of age. Children in this age group reach a stage in which repetition and manipulation of the environment are critical to the development of concentration, coordination, independence and sense of order. The child learns skills for everyday living, sorting, grading, classifying – all of which lead to the development of writing, reading and a mathematical mind.    Special training is required for becoming a Montessori teacher. The teachers at Montessori Academy are Montessori certified.    Because the Montessori programs are developed to meet the needs of a wide range of developmental stages, the programs are ideal for a wide range of abilities. Montessori Academy of Davison works closely with parents of children with special needs, including Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome as well.    The curriculum includes independent group work in computer lab, art, reading and ASL sign language.
