Maria Montessori said, "Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world." While parents often think about their child's future, they often don't think about the role their children will play in future societies. Every child ends up impacting the world in some way. Montessori Schoolhouse's mission is to educate and nurture the whole child, while letting children and parents take the front wheel in their individual learning so they can reach their fullest potential.
Montessori Schoolhouse of Hollywood's goals are:
For the parents to have full confidence in the education of their children
To instill confidence in the children to help students reach their full potential
To create authentic educational experiences for children
For the children to feel safe and loved while learning
For the children to positively contribute to their communities as youth and as adults
Montessori Schoolhouse at Hollywood, FL is dedicated to freeing the child's potential so that they may succeed.
Dr. Montessori developed a philosophy which embraces the whole child. She found that by placing children in a specially prepared environment to meet their physical, cognitive and social needs and to satisfy their intrinsic interests, children not only learn but thrive.
At Montessori Schoolhouse at Hollywood, this philosophy is expressed in classrooms where children, ranging in age over a three-year span, work individually or in small groups at developmentally appropriate tasks.
Montessori Schoolhouse at Hollywood offers an individualized approach to learning which allows students to make progress at their own pace. The curriculum works with each child’s ability and strengths rather than the child working with a set curriculum where all children are doing the same work at the same time. Our individualized approach offers children freedom of choice in a dynamic, energized, free-flowing classroom where the directress has prepared the environment to give each child the choices he or she is ready for and learning is exciting.
We believe that children are competent, capable learners when our beliefs are followed:
Each child’s mind, body and spirit should be nurtured and strengthened in order to tap into their unlimited potential. Montessori Schoolhouse at Hollywood does this through peace time, non-religious daily meditation and yoga so that they will know how to deal with any situation life presents him or her.
A multi-sensory approach which gives children the ability to make choices will maximize learning because it provides for individual learning styles and foster independence, self-esteem and self-discipline.
Developmental needs of children are universal and transcend cultural differences.
Children have a natural desire to explore and discover the world around them and find joy in learning when they are actively engaged in the learning process.
Children learn best in an environment of mutual respect and one that provides opportunities for cognitive, social, emotional, moral and physical growth.
Heterogeneous and multi-aged grouping provides opportunities for peer teaching, sharing and natural social development.
Children internalize concepts and skills at their own pace.
