Villa Montessori, a preschool located in the Village at Leesburg shopping center, is happy to announce their very first Open House & Montessori Education event of 2019, as seen on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/342260313263992 and is inviting everyone to join in. The preschool is welcoming not only parents, but also entire families to come to the event. The participants of this event get to tour the school, meet the teaching staff and discover their unique curriculum.
With over 12 years of experience using Montessori (a child-centered educational approach that's been used for over 100 years, based on scientific observations of children) and Reggio (a pedagogy that focuses on experiential learning), the preschool's innovative methods offer a whole new educational experience.
They offer programs for kids ranging from 18 months to 6 years old and they aim to give kids the opportunity to develop leadership skills that, "helps the children develop empathy, self-esteem, and self-confidence," according to the staff of the Preschool.
Hillary, a satisfied parent said, "our 2-year-old has been attending VMP for 2 and a half months now. We are very happy with the school. The school is small, very clean and bright. It is clear how devoted and passionate the administration is to child care and development. We came from a home daycare which we have been attending for more than 7 years with all our children. I was nervous to move as I had such high expectations from our current daycare, but the commute to that one became too long. It was hard to leave, but VMP has been a perfect fit from day one. Our daughter loves the music and they play a mix of classical composers along with fun age-appropriate music. She has already learned so much and I love seeing her teachers light up when she walks in the room, almost as much as we love seeing her excited to arrive. We love getting dozens of pictures each day showing us exactly what she has been immersed in and learning. The daily reports also illustrate for us what she is working on and how we can reinforce new experiences at home. We feel really lucky to have found such a great fit."

In a Q&A, the preschool confirms that their teachers are certificated when it comes to the understanding of the methodology of both Montessori and Reggio. They are also qualified when it comes to the method of combining age groups, they explained, "We combine age groups in our Primary classrooms for several reasons. The first, younger children naturally look up to older children and therefore are more inclined to learn from them. They are less shy with older children than they are with adults and more apt to imitate appropriate behavior. The older children then become natural leaders in the classroom, helping to facilitate the younger child’s learning by becoming good role models. Having mixed groups also aids in becoming goal oriented. When a younger child sees work he/she is interested in, they have watched the progression needed to be able to understand and handle the work themselves."
The Preschool is welcoming families from the surrounding areas of Purcellville, Round Hill, Hamilton, Paeonian Springs, Lovettsville, Lucketts, Ashburn, Brambleton, South Riding, Waterford, and Sterling. The event is on the 12th January of 2019 from 10 AM to 12 PM Eastern Standard Time at the Leesburg, Virginia preschool located in the Village at Leesburg shopping center. They can be found on Google Maps at https://goo.gl/J2Zaj7.
An Experience Day is gifted to all the children that have attended the Open House event or have scheduled and completed a Private Tour. The child gets to spend time learning with the other Preschool children and staff, as well as the chance to experience the Montessori and Reggio approaches.
