What is Montessori Education?

Montessori education is a scientifically-based educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952). Montessori education is practiced in an estimated 20,000 schools worldwide, serving children from birth to 18 years of age.

Montessori Education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development.

Essential elements in Montessori curriculum include:

  • Mixed-age classrooms with groups of children aged three to five years old
  • Students choose activities from within a prescribed range of options
  • Uninterrupted blocks of work time
  • constructionist or discovery model, where students learn concepts from working with materials, rather than by direct instruction
  • Specialized educational materials developed by Maria Montessori and her collaborators

Maria Montessori based her work on her observations of children experimenting with the environment, materials, and lessons available to them. She referred to her work as “scientific pedagogy.”

Enrichment

At ABC Montessori, we provide enrichment for children both inside the classroom and out to enhance your child’s learning experience.

Classroom Enrichment

Between ABC’s experienced instructors and professionals from around the community, we keep your child always learning inside the classroom. By keeping learning interdisciplinary, children learn about fitness, respect, coordination, and more. Enrichment at ABC includes:

    • Fitness: Our teachers keep your child active by playing with them outside and teaching team sports like soccer, while also teaching them the importance of fitness in their lives.
    • Music: Volunteer musicians come and teach children the basics of music and how to play musical instruments.
    • Computers & Technology: Our instructors teach children how handle and work with computers and today’s technology so they’ll be ready entering their school years.
    • Karate: Certified instructors come to ABC and teach children the basics of Karate and self-defense, while keeping them active and teaching them the importance of respect toward one another.
    • Dance: Dance instructors come and teach children to dance, helping improve their coordination and teaching them another way to stay active.

 

Field Trips

We keep children learning and having fun inside the classroom as well as outside. Field trips take place year-round to enhance the learning experience in our Montessori curriculum. All trips require a parent permission slip, and we make sure that the appropriate teacher ratio and close supervision are maintainted at all times. Some field trips require a cost.
Since parents are the first teacher, we encourage parents to chaperone.

Nutrition

We believe in teaching children about healthy lifestyles and eating habits from an early age. Because of this, we work to introduce children to nutritious meals and snacks following USDA Guidelines.

At ABC we serve Day Care children one healthy lunch every day, with a nutritious afternoon snack for everyone.

We believe that food is important in forming healthy habits, and strive to teach children the importance of both a healty diet and an active lifestyle.

Safety & Security

Nothing is more important to us than the safety, security, and well-being of your child.

We go to every measure possible to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your child every day. To do this, we do the following:

    • Cameras both inside and outside of ABC, with constant surveillance.
    • A code-locked door that automatically locks after being opened, and that only parents and registered guardians can open.
    • A Sign In and Sign Out process for children, in which parents are required to escort their children to classrooms every morning and check them into our computer system. At the end of the day, only parents and registered guardians can check children out of ABC.
    • Fire drills are practiced once a month so the children and staff can respond quickly and safely in the event of any emergency situation. Our center has in place an emergency response plan to ensure the safety of the children at all times.

If you have any questions about the safety at ABC Montessori Academy, come by and visit! We’ll be happy to show you around. Otherwise, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
