Modern & Mindful

 

Child-Centered Learning 1/3

At Modern Megaw Montessori, we provide an innovative, child-centered approach to learning.

Our teachers and staff prioritize the Montessori philosophy, taking a holistic approach to learning. We focus on the whole child – nurturing the connection to mind, spirit, and body.

Our enthusiastic staff ensure students are encouraged and motivated throughout their daily routines.

Our Method 2/3

The method is rooted in traditional Montessori teachings: prioritizing student safety, happiness and overall well-being, promoting leadership, self-confidence, and independence.

By concentrating on these areas of development, we ensure that students are motivated academically, physically, and creatively. Montessori provides an “education for life” approach and respects each child’s natural and quintessential skill level. Our focus on mindfulness and the incorporation of this practice into daily activities, sets us apart from other Montessori programs. With a mindful emphasis on community, we inspire our students to grow into peaceful, caring citizens.

Community-Focused 3/3

Community is one of our core values.

Our learners and their families are treasured members of our educational environment. Our children are respected and loved for who they are as individuals.

We aim to provide welcoming and safe space for all who enter.

“Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child open himself to life.”— Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child

The Montessori philosophy supports the complete development of the child. It is a holistic, self-paced approach to learning. The Montessori philosophy is based on supporting the child’s skill development as they progress from birth to adulthood. As a way of teaching, Montessori offers the view that knowledge is gained through hands-on experiment by the child. An authentic Montessori approach emphasizes the importance of discovery, independence and self-growth.

“The Montessori Method of teaching aims for the fullest possible development of the whole child, ultimately preparing him for life’s many rich experiences.”— North American Montessori Centre

The Montessori Method of education represents an ingenious combination of theory, rules, ideas, and principles applied to an event or topic. The goal of this method is for children to learn, practice, and together with their teachers, put the theory into effect. Dr. Maria Montessori designed a program that encourages children to learn the skills they need to become responsible, productive, independent, and loving citizens of the world.

Practical Life

In the practical life area your child is encouraged to explore activities ranging from pouring and transferring to self-care routines, food preparation, and practical life skills. The practical life program strengthens fine and gross motor skills as children learn care for self, the environment, and community.

Sensorial

The sensorial area focuses on developing a child’s senses including muscular, visual, hearing, taste, and smell. By developing in this area, children develop observation and problem solving skills.

3/4

Mathematics

Our math area introduces your child to numbers and quantities. Dr. Montessori discovered that a child who can count and recognize the symbols 1-9 can easily learn to count in quantities of hundreds and thousands. Specifically designed Montessori materials will introduce children to addition, subtraction, division and even the decimal system. Once a student is confident in their reading skills, the child will have the ability to learn math through written problem solving.

Language

Through the Montessori Practical Life and Sensorial areas, children learn to write before they learn to read. In the Montessori Preschool/Kindergarten Language area your child will learn letter recognition and the sounds of letters for reading. They will also develop the fine motor control and hand muscles needed for writing.
