Came across this quite by accident a couple of weeks ago... the Graduation 2015 song. I bawled like a baby. 😆😭
Hello! I called a few weeks ago and nobody returned my call. Please let me know if you have availability in your program.
Thank you teachers and parents for another great International Night! Between Egypt, Hungary, Thailand, Antarctica, and the others we've visited in our 7 years at MMP, we've pretty much been around the world. Zach' parting words as we left Egypt... "I'm really sad this will be our last International Night..." As are we all... :-(
I have a great set of wooden cursive letters used at MMP in the primary room for sale! We are moving and cleaning out. Sadly our kids have outgrown them. Retailed for $60 on Amazon. Selling for $45. I can deliver them to you at school.

We are so excited to see some of our friends tomorrow and Friday as we visit the school for a Monday return! We have been busy adding new works, a new butterfly garden reading nook, and a surprise or two. Our garden has been busy preparing for your return, too. See you soon!

Can't wait to be with our children again in a couple of weeks! Very busy getting everything ready and making sure to include a surprise or two!!

As we lead the way in demonstrating best practices in early childhood education during a pandemic with a June return, we reflect on our accomplishments:

*Mount Pleasant's most experienced childcare facility established in 1977

*First infant program (1980)

*First Montessori school East of the Cooper (1988)

*First RIE Certified Infant/Toddler East Coast Center

*Awarded first Public Mount Pleasant Charter Elementary School (ECMCS)

*First RIE Certified Satellite Training Program (Florida)

*First certified RIE on-line Foundations Course

Our highly qualified early childhood professionals are all trained in RIE ( and over half hold Montessori credentials at the 0-3 or 3-6 level. We maintain on faculty bilingual instructors, Orton-Gillingham certified guides, Master Naturalists, Suzuki trained teachers and are dedicated to ensuring that each person entrusted in our care reaches his or her fullest potential through a partnership with parents.

As we adjust our practice to ensure the safety and well-being of our community, we will not compromise the memories, learnings, and experiences for the children in our care. We've got this!

Stay strong, ya'll and see you in person in a couple of weeks!

Testing our Conversation Skills
You and I only need to think of all the things we learn when we are in conversations with others to realise it won’t be any different for our children. Conversation is a much underrated vehicle of learning. It’s as if we have come to believe that if ‘learning’ isn’t in the form of a formal lesson complete with writing and a test, then it isn’t real learning. Writing and a test is memorisation - and maybe even anti-learning. If you and I recall all the tests we swatted up for, and promptly forgot the next day, we'll get the idea.

You and I can be the person who enjoys having authentic conversations with our children, ranging across all manner of interests. It is our conversation that knits our relationship into a shared understanding of what is important for each other. A word of warning though: resist playing ’teacher’ and ’teaching them’ and then ‘quizzing them'. Conversations are not tests. There isn’t a hierarchy in a conversation; just two equal human beings hanging out and enjoying each other’s company. What’s not to like?

Parenting During Covid-19 (10 min read) — Birch Cove

Fellow MMP Parent, Dr. Viktoriya Magid, shares her thoughts on Parenting During Covid19. Stay healthy and wish us back together soon! If you are a parent of one or more children, the recent changes brought about by the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic have likely presented unique challenges for you.  You are most likely being asked to be an individual, a partner, parent, teach (sometimes different grades!), and work all at

Being With Infants

Being with Babies while you work can be a challenge to balance. We hope this (free) resource can be of value to parents as they prepare their home environments and schedules with babies in mind. This one of a kind series gives childhood providers and parents direct access to a comprehensive care approach from renowned child specialist, Beverly Kovach, certified Montessori trainer, Pikler and Resources for Infant Educators (RIE). Series includes proper bottle feeding, lap feeding, diapering,...

Our virtual classroom is up and running! Would love to hear from other teachers-

How are you staying connected with your families?

From one of our first responder parents... Can anyone in the Charleston area help?

Often overlooked, but for those centers in operation in order to serve families working in these fields

Can we please add CHILDCARE PROVIDERS to this list? While our center is closed, many more must stay open to provide childcare for first responders and essential employees.

Pediatrician: No Coronavirus Break Playdates. Here's Why.

Hang tight, Parents. Your teachers are busy now developing individual activities for your child and preparing materials for you to "check out" from the school and use from home. In the meantime... playdate outside with care. Looking ahead to more weeks at home during the outbreak can feel pretty bleak. But with coronavirus, playdates indoors are not the solution.

[03/15/20]   Montessori of Mount Pleasant is closed until March 31st.

We are adjusting our calendar to accommodate this unplanned closing and we are preparing individual lessons and materials to "check out" as families prepare their home environments. Stay healthy everyone!

[03/15/20]   At present and in accordance with SCDHEC advisement, we are open on Monday.

We are resourcing families who have voluntarily remained at home. Should the need arise for an all school closure, we will have plans in place to support parents, their children, and our teachers during the COVID19 crisis.

We are very proud of our little school community and everyone's support and involvement to work through this together. And they said a small, independent preschool couldn't be viable...

#SmallBusinessStrong #RelationshipsMatter

[03/13/20]   Our first priority continues to be the health and well-being of our center community. Public health officials continue to advise that social distancing is the most effective strategy to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are asking families to voluntarily stay home today and prepare for possible school closing as early as next week.

We recognize that school closures will create challenges for our families and our community, but we also recognize our responsibility to address this public health concern.

We will be making further announcements to our center community over the weekend.

Grab yourself some fresh greens picked today from our school garden.

American Montessori Society

On the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, TIME’s editors and collaborators revisited each year since 1920, looking for women whose reach transcended their time. We were ecstatic to see Dr. Maria Montessori listed as the 1931 Woman of the Year! #WeHeartMontessori
