Montessori PRESchool of Omaha

PRESCHOOL

18 MONTHS to 6 YEARS | Must be potty trained

Preschool Programs

Montessori is based on the principle of free choice and purposeful activity or “Freedom within limits”.The classroom is set up with five main areas of interest: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language and Cultural and children are allowed to freely choose activities within the classroom. All of the activities have built in control of error parameters so that the child can understand why the material may not be working. All of the activities focus on: Order, Concentration, Co-operation and Independence. We also work with our parents to potty train their child at this level!

Some Montessori schools, just like other schools, operate under the auspices of the church, synagogue, or diocese. Montessori Educational Centers is not affiliated with any religious organization.

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.

WHAT PARENTS HAVE TO SAY

" It was more like she was going from one home to another."
Choosing Montessori was one of the best decisions we have made for our Child. When we were introduced to the Montessori program, we were 100% sure that Shruthi was in good hands. We can surely say that Miss Olga and Miss Julie played an important role in this. We were never been disappointed for one second. It was more like she was going from one home to another. The development which we saw in her was truly what she learned from Miss Olga and Julie. They are more like friends and part of family now. Shruthi loves them so much and learning a lot. It doesn’t feel like they are working but enjoying what they do. We are very fortunate that Shruthi is being able to learn from passionate teachers who put their heart and soul in what they are doing.
Parents of Shruthi
"I am deeply grateful to the staff at Child's World"
Both of my children have had the good fortune of being in Miss Jackie's classroom at Child's World, and our family has benefited immeasurably from the clear, consistent, caring guidance that Miss Jackie and her staff provide --- not only to the children, but to us parents as well! Without their Montessori-informed guidance, we would never have known how much our young children are capable of doing. I am deeply grateful to the staff at Child's World for sharing their love, respect, and knowledge with our family. Thank you!
