Smart Start Montessori
Montessori Academy of North Hollywood is a privately owned preschool dedicated to the holistic nurturing of children and their families through the Montessori approach to education.
Our preschool program is a hands on sensorial approach to education, with many activities to help develop hand – eye coordination, concentration, independence, and socialization.
Preschool children are exposed to beginning writing, letter recognition, counting, colors, shapes, sizes, etc in a hands on tactile approach, using the Montessori apparatus.
At our Kindergarten level the students read and write, do additions, subtractions, and even multiplications using the Montessori equipment, before going into our Grade One.
Apart from these, the children also get many enrichment activities, such as arts and crafts, music, singing, poetry, painting, dancing, gymnastics, and a foreign language (Spanish) at no extra cost. Piano lessons are available for a small fee.
