Loving Arms Montessori will develop your child's understanding of the world. We offer a Montessori preschool curriculum for Primary ages (3-6) and a pre- curriculum for Primary ages (1-3). Our students learn at each stage of development to help them reach their full potential in life. The Montessori environment is a child size world. By careful selection of educational materials and furniture, and environment is set up that allows the child a place to explore life on a level s/he can understand. The materials are designed to stimulate exploration. The prepared environment is designed to entice the child to process at his/er own pace form simple activities to more complex ones. Through this process we seek to address the child's natural curiosity so sh/he can experience joy in discovering the world.
The Montessori Method of education is characterized by an environment designed to stimulate the child's interest and facilitate their understand and learning through interaction with the environment. In most preschools and schools children are taught in a group by teachers. In a Montessori environment children are led to learn concepts as they work with the many materials in the environment.
