The Montessori Learning Center, Inc is to provide with care a high quality education for young children using the Montessori Method. To take advantage of the child’s natural sensitive years (between the ages of two to six year old) when he/she can absorb information from an enriched environment.
Our goal is not to fill a child with facts but to cultivate his/her own natural desire to learn. Our basic intent is to teach the pre-school aged child that “Learning Is Fun”.
To provide a warm, nurturing and well-balanced program of educational development. To develop the child’s sense of self-esteem, independence, coordination, concentration, order, and respect for self, others and the environment. The program enhances a child’s learning socialization skills, develops good problem solving skills, lessons in grace and courtesy. Learning by “hands-on” activities and developing the five senses is a vital part of the program.
