[09/19/14] The child’s first year is the year that the child is really open to all possibilities. Their mind is open to millions of connections, called dendrites, which a child is born with. A dendrite is a connection in the brain that the synapse goes through which gives an electrical impulse. We are born with millions of these, but, as we grow, they kind of syphon off (which is called pruning). The less you use, the more you lose. So the first years of life are so important to lay a foundation for the kind of learner the child would become and, ultimately, the adult the child would be. These first years are critical. Are they going to be dependent as an adult? Would they feel empowered? Would they be able to meet their own needs? These are things that are so important and the first years of life lay this foundation.
St. Mary Children School Montessori, is dedicated to providing an inspiring learning environment based on the Montessori principles which will foster independence, confidence and respect while guiding and nurturing each child's individual development.
Independence: We will create a prepared environment where children can freely explore their natural sense of wonder and choose their own work with enthusiasm and interest.
Confidence: We will empower the children with opportunities to discover their own pace and method of learning which best suits their individual needs.
Respect: We will provide an environment and guidance which will encourage the children's development of kindness, courtesy and self-discipline.
