Call I.D.E.A.S.

Our Philosophy

Knowledge begins through INQUIRY.

Montessori students are driven by interest and curiosity. They follow their interest wherever that passion leads. Lessons gain more meaning and significance, making them highly motivated learners.

Children DISCOVER through play.

Learning takes place as they explore their environment and interact with others. By providing them with age-appropriate and purposeful activities, children are able to make sense of their experiences and express their ideas and feelings.

Our classes are child-centered but teacher directed. The students learn through individual or small group presentations that use hands-on and self-correcting materials. I.D.E.A.S. has multi-aged classrooms where the children work at their own pace and of their own choice but guided by rules and limits.  Through their work, every child develops concentration and experiences a blend of freedom and self-discipline.

We ENRICH the child’s total well being.

I.D.E.A.S. not only centers on the Montessori method but incorporates thematic units that completes every child’s learning.  This approach involves integrating storytelling, art, music and cultural arts together under one theme. It crosses over subject lines and helps children relate basic academic skills to real-world ideas.

The I.D.E.A.S. classroom is designed to facilitate maximum learning and exploration for children. It is an atmosphere that offers intellectual stimulation, social interactions, physical development, and spiritual enrichment.

Children ACHIEVE their full potential in a nurturing environment.

Nothing is as important to I.D.E.A.S. as a collaborative partnership between the home and school. We believe that a strong parent involvement is key to a child’s preschool experience. We encourage our parents to take every opportunity to participate in the education of their children. We invite frequent visits, offer after school seminars and provide a variety of parent volunteer opportunities.

I.D.E.A.S. propels every child to SUCCEED.

I.D.E.A.S. fosters intelligence, values and a lifetime love for learning. We assure a solid foundation for your child’s future education.
