Welcome to Precious Moments Montessori Preschool


OUR MISSION

Our mission is to provide every child in our school with a Montessori enriched program that embraces a holistic approach to early childhood education. We believe early education programs are most successful when it considers the emotional, intellectual, physical, social & human development of each child individually. Our creative Montessori curriculum does just that, embracing the uniqueness of each child while providing them a nurturing, emotionally secure and academically exceptional environment for young learners to grow, learn, and explore at their own pace.

OUR GOAL


1.

To foster a lifelong love of learning and exploration with a program dedicated to demonstrating the interconnectivity of all living things by providing an environment rich in a sensory-focused activity that allows each child to discover nature, mathematics, science, reading, and more as they explore their surroundings.


2.

To support each student’s individual educational needs by observing and understanding the learning styles and gifts unique to each child. We work with each child to encourage more autonomous, responsible, self-disciplined and self-motivated learning as they discover their full potential.


3.

To create a gentle, hands-on learning environment that considers the needs and interests of each child while fostering student-led inquiry/research and endeavors that develop understanding and appreciation of the world beyond the classroom.




WHY DO WE DO IT?

Simply put, we love seeing the excitement in the faces of our little learners when they figure out a new puzzle or discover a new skill. Preschoolers are built to learn through exploration and play which is why we adhere to a Montessori curriculum that promotes student-led learning. Although they are only with us until they start Kindergarten, we will do our part in ensuring that each child is equipped with the skills he or she needs to continue their academic success long after they have graduated from our Pre-Kindergarten program.
