When you want to make a positive impact in the life of your child, consider enrolling them in a Montessori school instead of a traditional day care setting.

What is a Montessori School?

In the United States, the economy and changing family structures often requires both parents to work. It has been estimated that over 85% of mothers across America are working. Because of this, some sort of day care is often necessary for younger children who have not yet reached school age.

It is important to ensure your child is in an environment that encourages learning from the start. A simple day care setting provides “care”, but does not always provide an education. The psychology and learning style of a child may not even be taken into consideration in a traditional day care.

Instead, consider enrolling your child in a Montessori environment.

Montessori will provide your child with the skills they need to not only be better prepared for 1st Grade, but have an early advantage in approaching all aspects of life. The Montessori environment create conditions in which children can develop their full, unique potentials.

An advantage of preschools and kindergarten is that they help children develop socialization skills at a young age.

Montessori takes this a step further by creating conditions at school that give children a sense of joy, celebration, and a feeling that they are part of something bigger than themselves. This is all accomplished without taking away a child’s sense of personal empowerment and personal responsibility. Children are provided an environment that fosters a sense of awe and wonder, and encourages creativity, independence, and self worth.

Should you decide to enroll your child in a Montessori school, be sure to ask if the school is a member of either the American Montessori Society (AMS) or the Association Montessori International (AMI). These two associations ensure that member schools adhere to strict Montessori standards so you can be assured that your child is getting the kind of education that you’re paying for.

Currently, Montessori American is a member of the AMS.
