The curriculum at MSLF, based on Maria Montessori`s study of child development, is designed to maximize the development of children through prepared environments.
Montessori trained directors conduct carefully planned lessons that children then carry out independently and repeatedly.
Children are encouraged to build sensory-motor skills, socialization skills, high self-esteem, inner security, and abiding habits of concentration.
Great care goes into preparing and maintaining classroom materials that are beautiful and inviting, and serve as essential components of the curriculum.
Montessori pedagogy is over 100 years old and is practiced in nearly four thousand public and private schools in the United States, and throughout the world.

A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
