Montessori education is based on the idea that children can choose how they want to learn, at their own pace. Children in a Montessori setting choose to work with different Montessori materials. They learn by doing, rather than by lecture.
We take great pride in our commitment to each family. Because we are a small, locally owned business, we can customize your child’s care to serve your individual needs. The teachers are passionate about what they do, and they take great pride in their work. Joyous Montessori is a uniquely multicultural environment, with teachers and students from all around the world. We celebrate diversity and intercultural understanding.
No, we do not have textbooks, homework and do not grade a child.
Teachers are very observant about each child’s progress. Children keep notebooks for math, language, and art. At the end of each week, the teacher writes a report about what the children have learned this week. We have assessments with the parents twice a year.
Children may attend Joyous Montessori from birth through kindergarten. We have a number of children who spend part of their time at a more conventional school and then visit with us for part of the day, Those who graduate have been taught the basic math and language skills expected for a child entering kindergarten and they excel in the conventional school.
Our shelves are filled with different Montessori tools. Children choose which activity they wish to work with, and they can change their activity as frequently as they need to keep interest high. We also have in-house enrichment classes, which include Spanish, computers, and cooking. Specialists come in to teach music and physical education classes.
We accept children at the age of six weeks. Once they are six months old, they will start working with
Parents choose our school because our teachers have great passion for what they do, and because the staff works very hard to give exceptional one-on-one service to each family.
Montessori education is comparable in price to private daycares, but it offers a much more rigorous
academic curriculum and much better preparation for the primary grades.
In the Montessori method, children learn by doing. Montessori materials make abstract mathematical concepts easier to understand by illustrating them with real-life materials. Children at this school also learn through special events, such as the history fair and science fair.
Younger children learn from the older child’s example. The older children can learn leadership skills as they embrace responsibility for their peers, and they gain confidence that will help them succeed in life.
