For many parents, preschool is a mystery. You take your child, drop him or her off, and then just have faith your money is being well spent. Unfortunately, some parents never see the fruits of their labors; and if that is the case, it is time to find a new preschool.
Preschool Is Important
Preschool is the single most important period in the development of your children. During this state of life, they are making connections and creating habits that they will carry with them through the rest of their lives. Due to the fact this time is so crucial, the preschool they attend should be taking their education seriously.
A Well-Rounded Education
In a Montessori preschool, you can count on outstanding results. In our classrooms, children learn valuable life skills like how to clean up after themselves, how to do dishes, how to feed fish and other pets, and how to care for plants. Besides life skills, children also learn phonographs and before you know it, they are reading you books.
A Welcome Challenge
Montessori preschools also teach math concepts that go well beyond number recognition. In a very short time, your child will be able to match numbers with quantity, will start counting by twos, fives, and tens, and will recognize even and odd numbers. The most beautiful thing about Montessori education is that when a child is ready for more advanced concepts and activities, teachers offer them exactly that.
Other things you can count on your child learning include days of the week, months of the year, seasons, and sequencing. For parents who were not educated with the Montessori Method, it all seems like a miracle. The fact your preschooler is doing work that the public school system deems appropriate for first grade will amaze you.
We believe that the things taught in a Montessori preschool not only prepare children for the real world, but also prepare them to love all the magic contained within it.
