About Little Flower
We like to personally welcome you and your child to a warm and happy learning environment. Our school theory is based on core Montessori beliefs of respect for each other and the learning environment. Children are free to work at their own pace with materials they have chosen. Teachers observe the child and determine which new material may be introduced next in order for the child to successfully complete a wonderful journey through Montessori education. Our school environment is designed for children 3-6 years old. Our primary “goal” is to help each child reach his/her full potential in all areas of life, stimulate child’s love for learning and give the child the best possible foundation for academic growth.
The director herself is a certified Montessori teacher with 17 years of Montessori experience in the U.S.A and the extensive knowledge of various areas of the Montessori education.
The primary “goal” of a Montessori program is development of the “whole child.” This program helps each child reach his/her full potential in all areas of life, social skills, emotional growth, physical coordination as well as cognitive preparation for further education. In this way children become positive, confident and responsible life-long learners and problem solvers. The Montessori classroom is set up according to the children’s physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and spiritual needs, and it offers child-sized furniture and carefully designed learning materials. The class consists of mixed age groups, so children can learn and help each other without the pressure of competition. Children can move freely and choose their own activities at their own pace, either alone or with others. Teachers are loving, responsible adults. Through observations and interactions with children, they set up realistic goals for each child, and then find an appropriate moment to ensure that concepts and skills are introduced at a time when the child is most sensitive to them.
