ABOUT KEYSTONE MONTESSORI PRESCHOOL

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The child is both a hope and a promise for mankind...

- Dr. Maria Montessori

              

  As guiders, researchers and co-learners, we would intensify in each child's natural potentials. As educators our role is to determine the child's ability to grow in each developmental area and provide the precise environment to build their skills. Give access to hands-on activities and allowing adequate time and space to use materials that emphasize the lesson being studied creates an opportunity for individual discovery and construction of knowledge. We inspire Dr. Maria Montessori method. The Montessori Method is unique, scientific approach to fulfill a child mental and physical needs while encouraging maturity of behavior in child, his self-discipline and self-esteem.  The positive and enthusiastic attitude will improve their education and bright their future.

 

Free the child’s potential and you will free the child…

- Dr. Maria Montessori

    

          The Montessori method has been utilized over the years in many diverse environments. The hallmark of Montessori is the peer learning through Multi-Age classrooms that creates not only a sense of family, but also gives an opportunity for older students to reinforce their abilities. Additionally, a full complement of special design learning materials are meticulously arranged to seek active learning. The children learn within their limits, focusing on a concentration of learning that will bring independence, freedom, coordination and a sense of order. Each student's unique learning style is welcome in Montessori classrooms and they will learn at their own pace. Each child advancing through the well planned curriculum is guided by the teachers in an individualized learning plan. The children will self-assess and self correct as they progress through life. We are committed to providing each child the opportunity to fulfill his full potential and to become an independent and secure person - embodying the hallmarks of the Montessori method.

 

All children, of all ages, have five critical needs in common which stay with them  throughout their lives…

- Dr. Gerald Newmark

 

          In Keystone Montessori we are committed to creating healthy emotional children with fulfilling their needs of respect, acceptance, inclusion, and a secure environment. Therefore, we will optimistically build a healthy relationship, since learning is processed through the sharing of concern. While the importance of interpersonal relationships is an association, we provide varied opportunities to communicate and to use their aptitude. We believe it is important to learn to respect, accept and embrace the differences between us, to be a good citizen of the world. Our goal is to motivate families to feel a sense of commitment and dedication towards their children and our school.
