Montessori Method

Montessori Method In Tarzana

The Montessori Method was developed in the 1900’s by Dr. Maria Montessori. She based her method on the premise that each child is born with a natural curiosity for life and its surroundings, and a drive to develop himself. A child learns best by using his senses and having the freedom to explore with materials that are a part of his prepared environment. Dr. Montessori designed various materials for the children to use individually. All materials/jobs are carefully made to self-teach the child by having a “control of error.” This control of error is what enables teachers to evaluate the child’s understanding and to correct the child without negative reinforcements, but with praise and encouragement to try it again. The goal is to motivate and stimulate a child’s natural desire to learn. We have implemented a “prepared environment” here at Montessori On The BLVD for all the children to have the opportunity to be successful and exceed their fullest potential. The materials are Montessori-based, and include sensorial, preliminary practical life activities, preliminary math, language and cultural activities which satisfy your child’s need for imitation, work, and order. Your child experiences satisfaction in learning to care for himself as more and more independence becomes possible for him. The activities are designed to provide your child with the skills they need to be successful in our Primary Program. The child will sort, grasp, make comparisons, and will be introduced to phonetic sounds and quantities. This helps them develop the small muscle skill that it takes to become a successful writer and the cognitive skill that he needs to feel fulfilled. Details on your child’s behavior and the activities that your child participated in during the day are provided to you in our daily report.

My two children attended this school from age 2 and 6 months respectively. They have now just “graduated ” . This school and it’s fantastic staff ; Ms Luana, Ms Farideh, Ms Mona , Ms Lisa to name a few are the most dedicated , amazing, loving and caring teachers I could ever have hoped for. I feel lucky to have found this school for my little ones and they have become like family to us.

“We’ve been with this school for 4 years now with no major complains. Teachers are friendly and nice. Miss Farideh is the best. She is really caring and you can tell she loves her job and all the kids there. Miss Nelly and Miss Sarah in infant room are awesome. We also enrolled our son in the same school one month ago. He is in infant room now.”
