Overview

Montessori Children's School says

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.
