Is Montessori Right for your Child?
For many years children from a variety of ages, cultures and backgrounds all over the world have benefited from a Montessori education. Your child will too.
Montessori schools work to develop lasting values like empathy, honesty, integrity, compassion, diligence for hard work. We celebrate uniqueness of every child and nurture their fragile spark of curiosity, creativity, and intelligence. Montessori schools have a very different set of priorities from traditional schools, and a very low regard for mindless memorization of facts and superficial learning.
Whether the child can count, identify letters, or name colors is not the main idea. The Montessori Teacher is focused on the child’s developmental ability to respond to the beauty and simplicity of Montessori prepared environment. Montessori students grow to become self-confident, independent thinkers who actually developed a habit and passion of doing things.
You, as the parent, sense that the time may be right for your child to come to school. Perhaps you observed that the toys at home no longer keep his interest, or he wanders around without really occupying himself or simply demands more attention from you than ever before. You may feel that he is now ready for new experiences, challenges, and friends. As your child enters the school, he will be ready to get connected with other children, benefit and grow in the Montessori society.
Your child will feel right at home where his individual developmental needs are met and satisfied by wide variety of our manipulative objects and materials. There he will feel safe and learn at his own pace, free from the outside pressures and the need to please others. Your child will learn that his ideas have merit and his decisions are important, he will learn to take responsibility for his own actions.
In addition, your child will gain confidence and independence, positive self-esteem and respect for others – qualities, that will sustain him through lifetime.
These powerful lessons go far beyond the simple memorization of facts and formulas, far beyond basic curriculum.
Montessori schools are different, but it isn’t just because of the materials that are used in the classroom. Look beyond the pink towers and golden beads, and you will discover that the classroom is a place where children really want to be – because it feels a lot like home.
We invite all the parents to come and experience the Montessori difference and be a part of this wonderful opportunity for you and your child.
