PEACEFUL CLASSROOM

Some of the main principals of Montessori education are to focus on developing the building blocks for learning: concentration, independence, order, and self-confidence. Children at this age have an extraordinary capacity to absorb information quickly from their surroundings. We as teachers are privileged to witness the magical moments in our classroom everyday.

One of the important principles in our classroom is "Peace". We have worked hard at having a "peaceful classroom", since we are like a big family at school.

  • Fantastic teaching staff with a wonderful curriculum. The Montessori method is truly amazing – it’s impressive to see children teach and learn from each other, just like a family. They serve healthy snacks and use non-toxic cleaning choices. I am so glad I chose this preschool!

  • My child just graduated from Montessori Learning Center and we just LOVED It!! I can’t say enough about the outstanding and professional staff at the school. My child now is very well prepared for his new school and I would highly recommend the school to parents who want a small private school where your child gets a lot one on one attention, love and care.

  • Best place for your child besides home! The staff is wonderful. The method is great! Don’t send your children to the horrible government run schools. The individual attention helps every level of child and you can’t and won’t get that at public/government school.
