Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.
– Dr. Maria Montessori
Our preschool program is an enriched learning environment organized into several curriculum areas; language, mathematics, practical life, sensorial, geography and science. The curriculum also includes foreign language (Spanish), music and technology. Our primary aim is to be a catalyst for the child’s natural desire to learn.
It is essential that the material environment be orderly for your child. As soon as he has realized the order he enters the repetition state which brings mastery of a lesson. Our students are empowered to make their own decisions which ultimately encourages self-discipline which improves behavior. This creates a positive attitude towards learning that lasts a lifetime.
