The Montessori philosophy assumes that all children are born intelligent.

Montessori classrooms accommodate varied learning styles

We believe that an individual child’s learning style is as unique as his or her personality and each child learns in his or her own way at his or her own rate.

Montessori classrooms are conscious of these innate difference, and that’s why we provide a wide variety of settings and activities to appeal to each child’s interests. We offer learning centers where lessons can be completed alone or in small groups, as well as fieldwork excursions led by an instructor where children learn as a class. This variety not only ensures that each child’s unique learning needs are being met, but it also helps young learners develop flexible thinking strategies. Montessori classrooms have high expectations for all students, not a select few.

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!
