Montessori Kirkland child center with a mission
Did we not already say this, that our school actively uses the proven Montessori method – the philosophy of free development. We adhere to such views that the child is a small adult, a person who must be treated with respect from infancy and given freedom of choice, fostering independence. For our teachers, these are not just words. According to the Montessori philosophy, all pedagogy comes down to two possible attitudes of the teacher: “do as I do” and “do it yourself.” No one denies the value of copying – it was and remains the basis of any educational process. The educational process lacks freedom and flight. Our teachers adhere to these principles.
Students a wide range of educational options
Lessons are taught by certified teachers who are proficient in the Montessori method. They bring together children of different ages, it will allow developing at their own pace, without feeling pressure from other students. The Montessori program consists of areas such as mathematics, languages, science, art, culture and practical life.
In this way, the child comprehends many areas, from which he will choose his most distant direction. Our teachers will give some skills in practical life. They will teach such elementary things as to dress, tying shoelaces and washing hands. All these activities allow developing fine motor skills.
