Children Lead Their Learning
The child is the center of the Montessori pedagogical approach to education. Through the hands-on work with the specifically designed materials the child gains real life experiences and builds independence. Your child will progress at a pace that is unique and perfect for them. The Montessori preschool teacher as a keen observer, guides the child at the right moment to allow the child to develop to their fullest potential, academic and emotional. Teachers “Follow the Lead of the Child.”
Kindergarten Readiness And Beyond
In our preschool and kindergarten environment, teachers help the child fulfill his inner need for knowledge. This in turn helps the child self-construct his character and intellect while integrating his mind, body and spirit. Maria Montessori discovered through her studies that “Please help me to do it myself” is the inner voice of the child. Children are guided to build self-discipline, confidence, a sense of order and independence within themselves, both towards academic study and towards life, laying a solid foundation for their successful future.
Carefully Designed Outdoor Spaces
With outdoor activities, children build the fine and gross motor skills to be confident, strong movers. They swing, jump, dig, throw and catch. They construct, collaborate, problem solve, and play! They climb on the natural play structures in our spacious and beautiful playgrounds. Our Nature-rich curriculum builds their skills and healthy, active habits. By planting seeds to taking care of the garden and harvesting, children observe science in action.
Enriching Young Lives With Music, Dance, Mandarin, and More
Spanish and Mandarin lessons are part of the curriculum and so are science and art lessons. Cultural experiences from around the world are usual occurrence in our classroom community. Our curriculum includes celebrations, food, music, dance, and traditional experiences from different ethnicity. We welcome all cultures and diversity.
Extra-curricular activities such as private piano lessons, dance classes and Tumble Gym are offered for overall growth and development of a child.
Partnering With Parents
Positive Discipline philosophy is prevalent through out the school in guiding children develop self-discipline, responsibility, cooperation, and problem-solving skills. Eyas hosts parenting seminar series annually. This workshop style seminar is recommended for parents, caregivers, grandparents, and teachers.
Enrolled families are encouraged to attend these workshops, so teachers and parents can be on the same page at school and at home. It provides an opportunity to hear from each other what is in their bag of tricks, what works, when it works and what else can be tried. What works at one time may not work in a different scenario or with a different child. Having the goal or the big picture in mind and connecting with your child is the key. Come join us!
