WELCOME TO OUR NEW SCHOOL YEAR

As the 2015-2016 School Year begins this week, the entire Village Montessori team wishes to extend a warm welcome to all of our new children and happily welcome those familiar faces returning to school! It is our goal to provide the best Montessori Education possible to each and every one of our students and that each child feels truly cared for, respected, and safe as an individual within our school.
 
Respect and courtesy are the foundations of a civil and productive society. Children are naturally drawn to these underpinning principles in the classroom. Therefore, we will be focusing on enjoyable lessons in Grace and Courtesy for the first weeks back together. The children will learn how to care for their environment and how to respect and be courteous with one another within the school and playground environment.
  
Parents and children will notice our expanded and improved Village Montessori playground – now twice as big as before! In addition to doubling the size of the outdoor environment, we have added lots of natural grass, terrain features, and garden stations to the playground. We are installing more shade systems, and have added a new gazebo with sitting area, floral vines, and a stage for performances by the children!
 
There are improvements inside the school as well. We have a new upgraded HVAC system to insure even better control of cooling throughout the school. We have added more vision walls to buffer sound while allowing observation without interrupting the children at work. Additionally you may notice many new Montessori Lessons in each classroom specially in our All day Montessori Classroom. These lessons allow your children even more options for growth, exploration and learning in keeping with Maria Montessori’s philosophy of “Freedom within limits, nurturing, and well-prepared environment.”
 
Finally, we wish to thank you for entrusting your children to Village Montessori. We take this responsibility very seriously. There is no more precious gift than the gift of a child. In partnership with you, we are here to help nurture and encourage each child to be his or her very best academically, socially and emotionally. These are very important years in the individual’s development wherein the traits of self-esteem, empathy and academic confidence are forged.
 
At Village Montessori we are cognizant of this and so our motto, “Everything we do is Education” is underway!

More Testimonials

"I feel my infant daughter gets the best possible care and love at Village Montessori. I was pleasantly surprised that the teachers encourage "freedom of movement", and I have noticed a difference in my daughter's development compared to my son (who attended a different school as a baby). I'm confident that much of that difference is due to the interaction she receives on a daily basis. I look forward to her attending this school for several years.

 

Here are a few of the WONDERFUL things about the school: amazingly dedicated staff...excellent knowledge of early childhood development...flexible, understanding approach towards administration...reasonable costs comparable to nearby schools...well organized facility...Location, Location, Location (it is so great, hopefully the school will not outgrow the facility). VM has helped our child in wonderful ways; the caring staff seems to have boundless energy and the teachers are truly selfless. They all have such wonderful attitudes. They are like rays of sunshine. We feel privileged to be able to have our child attend such a fine school. Congratulations to you, Ms. Joan!

Testimonials

I am overwhelmingly pleased with Village Montessori. It's a warm, loving environment, but the aspect that attracts me the most is that the children are constantly engaged in developmentally appropriate, hands-on activities. The children garden, taste fruits and vegetables, sing songs, dance, play, create, and learn all day long. This is not babysitting. The environment is carefully structured to facilitate independent functioning and children are encouraged to do as much as possible on their own. The teachers are always engaged with the children, singing, reading, talking with them, fostering language and social interactions. My son Sebastian loves school and has made many close friends both younger and older than he. I highly encourage any family with a young child to consider Village Montessori.

"The Village Montessori School is a dream come true... it is very clear to me that my daughter's time there has prepared her to be more confident with herself and to interact well with others. I would only hope that all children enjoy the same experiences and welcome others to it as well!"

- Martha Borge-Gutierrez
