WHAT PARENTS ARE ASKING
We do extensive Criminal Reference checks and Background checks on all of our team members.
Our program is 5 days per week, Monday – Friday. Recognizing the community’s need for extended hours, we are open from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Our Preschool program runs as follows:
Infant: 6 weeks-18 months
Toddler: 18 months-3 years
Primary: 3 years – Kindergarten (Child must be potty trained)
School Day: 8:30 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Full Time: 7:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.
Montessori is based on the principle of free choice of purposeful activity. If a child is being destructive or is using materials in an aimless way, the teacher will intervene and gently re-direct the child either to more appropriate materials or to a more appropriate use of the material.
Because we have a mixed age group, discipline develops naturally through the guidance of older students. The desire to imitate the positive behavior of a five-year-old is a strong influence on a three-year-old.
We stress consideration for people and property and help the children absorb the rules and our values right from the start. Our ultimate goal is always for the student to love learning! When occasional behavior challenges do arise, we handle them in an age-appropriate way with firm sensitivity. We make certain that the rules are clear and consequences fair and consistent. We primarily use redirection as an appropriate response to most instances. If the situation escalates, the child will be asked to “sit out” until he or she gains self-control and is able to act appropriately, follow directions, or show respect for people and property. We Never engage in any physical punishment or shaming!
We keep lines of communication open with parents. If the situation warrants, we work with parents to address ongoing behavior issues. We also encourage parents to talk to us about behavioral challenges they are seeing at home, ones we may not see at school. Working together, parents and teachers make a great team.
When the time comes to move into a more traditional school environment, Montessori children usually adapt very well. Our programs are designed to help children develop positive self-images and confidence so they can face challenges and change with optimism. The Montessori environment helps build self-esteem, which research has shown to be a key predictor for future success.
