The first essential for the child’s development is concentration. The child who concentrates is immensely happy.
— Dr. Maria Montessori
Montessori Children Preschool Classroom Overview
Montessori Children has a prepared environment that contains specially designed, manipulative “materials for development” that invite children to engage in learning activities of their own individual choice. Under the guidance of our trained and certified Montessori teachers, children attending the Montessori classroom learn by making discoveries through the materials, cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline, coordination, a love of learning, and working habits necessary for the more advanced exercises they will perform at age five.
The entire program of learning is purposely structured. Children move from work with shapes to letters and numbers, and then on to simple word reading and math problems. History, nature, geography and sciences are explored in increasing depth with each year.
The children learn to think before they act, to consider the needs of others and to be safe. Dr. Maria Montessori called this way of teaching “preparing the child for success.” The teacher is there to guide the child through special designed exercises in which the child will succeed. Through time, the exercises rise in difficulty but because the progression is so well thought out, the child never feels as though learning is a struggle.
Accordingly, our certified Montessori teachers are prepared to foster all children to reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace with the best practices in efforts aiding the children’s natural learning tendencies as they unfold in this “prepared environment” to aid the most profound young minds of the future.
