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.

Hey there!

You know, for new parents who are researching options for child care in Chula Vista, it can be a daunting task because there are so many things to consider.

You may be thinking:

  • Can I afford to send my child to preschool?
  • Are there child care assistance programs that I qualify for?
  • What’s the difference between a home day care, a child care center, a parochial school, and a Montessori school?
  • What if I find a Montessori preschool that I like but I don’t know if they’re any good at what they do?

Well, I just wrote a blog post on ShowMeLocal.com (click the photo below) and I wanted to share it with you because I answer each of the questions above and much more.

I hope you find it useful. Take care!
