About Us

A Few words about us

Marian Montessori School (Marian Montessori) was founded in July of 1990 as the culmination of the founder's approaches used with her own children as well as growing desires she had for her own grandchildren's childhood development.

A warm and inviting family atmosphere set in a carefully prepared home environment, Marian Montessori facilitates a smooth home to school transition, thereby maintaining a 100% comfort zone. The professional services of qualified and caring educators ensure the quality care and guidance in our prepared home environment setting while maintaining safety, security and high maintenance of care through features like added monitoring documentation and surveillance.
Marian Montessori is a constantly developing program, utilizing a variety of materials and methods to ensure an optimal learning environment. For example, our method is no longer solely Montessori, but is also a combination of several current leading and time tested styles of education. The result is formidable intellectual stimulation, yielding satisfaction in a child's performance through demonstrable results. At Marian Montessori, we believe in the unending potential of a child's mind.

Exploration and enjoyment is fostered through introducing a love for the arts of Music, Dance, Mime, Dramatic Art, French, Painting, Sculpture and Science in our fully prepared studio .

The power of the imagination and creative art is also enhanced through the constant encouragement and affirmation at story time. Imaginative trips to other lands to learn about the culture, ethnic customs, traditions and interests of all people, strengthens a child's love for all ethnicities, their rich values, and the many gifts of diversity.

Our Method!

Our method is based on the natural development of a child's knowledge during which there are known sensitive periods.

It is easier for a child to learn a particular skill during the corresponding sensitive periods then at any other time in his/her life, therefore the specially prepared environment also allows a child the freedom to select individual activities which correspond to his/her periods of interest.

Through a careful combination of work and play in our prepared and inviting environment, in the early stages, a child will develop concentration, coordination and work habits necessary for more advanced exercises to be performed at later stages.

A child's educator acts as a guide, a helper and a constant observer. It is the educator's responsibility to constantly test and observe a child's work, attention span and progress with the goal of bringing a child to realize their capabilities and unending potential. Therefore, it is the educator's responsibility to utilize the prepared environment to specifically support a child towards independence.

Governed by the needs and responses of a child, a broad range of materials will be made available. Each tool provided to a child has a built-in control of error feature, thereby reinforcing the educator's goal of helping a child to self-assist.

The educator is also required to create bespoke materials for a child's specific needs. In this way, there is a constant process of upgrading the environment with knowledge from the educator's observations and accumulated class documentation regarding a child.
