Learning is facilitated in a comfortable, homelike setting prepared with developmentally appropriate materials that contribute to the growth of self-motivated independent children ages 3 and 4 years old.
A single class contains a range of ages and abilities in which the older children share what they have learned with the younger students. The younger students enjoy the daily stimulation of the older children as role models. These peer teachers, in turn, reinforce their own skills and experience the responsibilities of leadership.
The Montessori classroom operates on the principle of freedom within limits. Children are free to work at their own pace, alone, or with others. We encourage a balance of active, self-directed learning with small group collaboration and one-on-one teacher guided lessons.
We teach children to problem solve, see natural connections in knowledge and create new ideas. This is the way children learn most effectively and attitudes towards learning remain positive and enthusiastic. Your child’s daily experiences are designed to foster physical, intellectual, creative, and social independence.
Never let a child risk failure until he has a reasonable chance of success.
Dr. Maria Montessori
