Glen Park Montessori Preschool
Beautifully guiding children through their preschool years, in a lovely classical Montessori setting offering the beautiful time-honored materials, abundant sunlight, and garden-like outside play space. A place where children learn to love learning, experience peaceful co existence, kindness, independence, and a deep appreciation for our natural world.
We respect each and every child that is entrusted to our care, and honor their unique gifts, talents and abilities.
Above all we want our students to develop a lifelong joy for learning and the ability to be a curious, contributing, compassionate, respectful world citizen, with knowledge, respect and a sense of stewardship for all life.
Across all subject areas, Montessori education emphasizes compassion, respect for others, and individual initiative.
After school the children have the option of choosing a guided project given by the instructor or one of the many independent, age-appropriate educational materials located throughout the classroom.
Our Guides work in concert to ensure a warm, loving, enriching Montessori environment for the children we have in our care. We work to achieve this through shared personal experiences developed over years of teaching experience.
“An interesting piece of work, freely chosen, which has the virtue of inducing concentration rather than fatigue, adds to the child’s energies and mental capacities, and leads him to self-mastery.”
“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
