There are many who hold, as I do, that the most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but is the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when mans intelligence itself his greatest implement, is being formed. - Maria Montessori

PARENT INVOLVEMENT PROGRAM (PIP)


Our Parent Involvement Program (PIP) helps keep tuition cost down while building a community of students, teachers and parents. Our school is a non-profit community school and requires that all parents participate by either serving on the parent board through once a month parent meetings, assisting in the classroom, helping with maintenance and cleaning, yard work, baking, sewing and/or other creative contributions so that we can maintain and improve our school community. Families are required to give thirty hours per year to our school community.

MONTESSORI EDUCATION CULTIVATING YOUR CHILDS NATURAL DESIRE TO LEARN


Discovery Montessori Preschool offers much more for children than simply daycare. We provide a stimulating learning environment, appropriate for curious and growing preschoolers. The Montessori Method of teaching offers children a chance to become enchanted with the love of learning by exploring the carefully prepared environment. Discovery Montessori Preschools program is designed to meet the needs of the young child in accordance with the principles established by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 1952). She believed that a childs natural ability to learn must be cultivated in a warm and supportive environment, with touchable, entertaining educational materials, thoughtfully crafted to teach concepts. A child must develop the love for learning at an early age or it may never be accomplished. Our center provides a child driven program with the staff guiding and encouraging children at their own pace. We help each child perfect his or her natural tools, or building blocks for future learning. We provide an extensive collection of specialized Montessori learning materials, which are child friendly and inviting, displayed on accessible open shelves. Our children work together in a multi-age classroom where we encourage cooperation and where children learn from each other in a natural community environment. Our goal is to create an environment where self-expression and learning are enjoyable, for both individual development and group learning.
