Montessori Childrens School

  • At the Montessori Children's School, we provide the sense of security and loving care that toddlers need to thrive during this stage of intense learning.
  • Since toddlers are especially driven towards achieving independence, our teachers provide responsive, individual attention as your child deals with positive experiences as well as frustration.
  • The Montessori Children's School curriculum takes advantage of the rapid growth of gross and fine motor skills at this stage.
  • Dr. Maria Montessori was a medical doctor and pioneer educator who was born in Italy in 1870 and died in 1952.
  • As her life's work, she developed a teaching philosophy that balances freedom with responsibility in the classroom and also sets high standards of intellectual and social development for children.
  • The principle and philosophy developed by Dr. Montessori Educational research indicates that children ages 3-6 are extremely capable of learning meaningful things, and that intellectual stimulation given at this age level helps to create the foundation for later academic success.
  • A program of play alone does not help the young child to organize his or her mental processes, which is necessary for academic learning.
  • Therefore, the Montessori program is a learning program with a curriculum wherein the children enjoy the work/play environment created for them.
