ENROLLING NOW FOR FALL!
Small World Montessori exists to create an exciting environment for learning for all children
and to guide them toward development of the whole self.
We offer the following Enrichment Programs:
Maria Montessori is credited with creating a powerful method for teaching young children. Her method was based on scientific research and observation. Although she was the first female in Rome, Italy to become a Doctor, her work with children has been her greatest achievement. Montessori schools exist all over the world and span ages 0 to 18 years of age. The majority of schools, however, serve the 3-6 year old population.
MONTESSORI CREATIVITY AND INDEPENDENCE
Maria Montessori concluded that children learn best by freedom in a prepared environment. The "teacher" is more of a "guide" for the children to aid them toward self-development. The Montessori environment is filled with beauty, organization and age appropriate activities that span 3 years. This multi-age grouping is very intentional in that the younger children learn from the older children and the older children develop a sense of leadership and care for their community. Creativity and Independence are encouraged through individual instruction and experimentation with the materials.
Your child's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development are interrelated. Our teachers carefully and thoughtfully guide your children in all areas of development.
