Our school is a unique preschool because it not only offers the Montessori philosophy, but it follows the developmental philosophy as well. The Montessori hands on approach to education, takes into consideration the entire potential of the child, mentally, socially, physically and emotionally. The Montessori method provides the child with an independent learning experience by using didactic materials, many of which have a built-in control of error. This enables the child to check his or her own progress.
With our philosophy children learn by experiencing and manipulating their physical environment. Children are social beings and need opportunities for meaningful social interaction to develop social competence, problem solving skills, acritical consciousness, autonomy, self regulation, and a sense of purpose. They need experiences that encourage them to make choices, interact with one another, problem solve, express their own thoughts and feelings, listen to another perspective, and negotiate. Through these experiences children develop, test, and refine appropriate strategies of interaction with their peers and adults. The Montessori method guides the child with this development.
