Top reasons to choose Childtowne Montessori School
Child-centered learningThe Montessori teachers design an effective, individual learning experience for each child aged 18 months to kindergarten age. Our programs focus on the children and not the teacher. Our multi-aged classrooms are specifically prepared to encourage each child to reach his or her individual potential.
High quality, experienced staffAll of our highly qualified lead teachers and heads of school have earned their Montessori teaching credentials and have many years of experience guiding young children in Montessori classrooms.
Secure learning environmentOur primary consideration in the design of our programs, policies, and facilities is your child’s safety and security. Our classrooms are equipped with high-quality, educational, hands-on equipment and materials. In this nurturing environment, learning blossoms. We have recently added safety features to the building as well as educated staff about current safety protocols.
Fun with language, music, and artThe preschool and kindergarten children participate in foreign language learning activities led by an experienced language teacher. Music and body movement is a highlight of each week for classrooms in all age groups, when our experienced music professional comes with drums, scarves, guitar, and many musical instruments to lead the children in song, dance, rhythm, and movement activities for 30 minutes in each class. The Kindergarten children enjoy art and art appreciation, and have explored masters including, Picasso, Mondrian, Matisse, and Kandinsky! They use a variety of mediums to create masterpieces of their own.
Family flexibilityChildtowne Montessori School operates on an 11-hour day schedule from 7:00am to 6:00pm. There are many options for families such as the traditional Montessori three-hour program as well as any additional hours one may need. Montessori classes as well as various specials are available during all of these times. We try to accommodate your child’s school hours to fit your schedule. As of 2016 - 2017, children who stay a full day can attend cooking classes as well as a yoga class.
Best practicesAll classrooms at Childtowne Montessori practice the Montessori philosophy and approach to learning, led by Montessori trained teachers and staff. As a school, we are cognizant about being flexible to every child’s needs, which is why Childtowne Montessori “follows the child.” As noted by Dr. Steve Hughes, President of the American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychologists, “When examined through the lens of environmental enrichment and brain development, Montessori education presents a radically different and radically effective educational approach that may be the best method we’ve got to ensure the optimal cognitive, social, and emotional development of every child.”
