Virginia-based Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg has recently awarded their 'Teacher of the Month' for January to Ms. Maddy. The news about the award can be seen here https://bit.ly/2SLf9Fs. According to the school, Ms. Maddy has always been an outstanding educator with a passion for helping her students grow and improve, with a ready smile on her face and a positive attitude that encapsulates how Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg teaches their kids.
“At Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg, we want our students to love their school and the process of learning. Learning should be filled with fun and creativity. A big part of that fun relies on teachers like Ms. Maddy who has passion for the individual, the talent, and the ideas of their students. Our teachers are here to provide opportunities to experience Montessori education in a hands-on, project-oriented environment. They provide an unscripted series of lessons celebrating the interests of the children. They are here to help the child connect with the world they live in,” said Ms. Kimberly the School Director for Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg.
Ms. Kimberly has a career in education spanning over 20 years. Her experience includes being a teacher, principal, teacher trainer, parent educator, and the head of school for one of the largest Montessori schools in DC metropolitan area. She is a member of the American Montessori Society and the North American Reggio Emilia Alliance. “Each of our teachers has been hand picked to make sure the children's developmental needs are met and their curiosities run free. You’ll often see them searching for the most intriguing, new, and imaginative experiences the world has to offer. They make observations to discover emerging talents, interests, and goals. This approach is what makes a Montessori education unique and special,” she added.
Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg offers programs for children from toddler stage to six years old. Their unique preschool design allows for curiosity and creativity to develop. The school has employed the Montessori method which was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. This particular curriculum, based on the basic principle of “follow a child”, is a proven method to boost a child's independence and self-confidence. The school also follows the Reggio inspired program in teaching which focuses on the cognitive processes of learning, more so than the results. This approach helps children develop the necessary critical thinking skills and understanding at a much earlier period.
“At Villa Montessori Preschool, we believe that relationships are built from strong connections – between us and the children in our care, between classmates, between families, and between children and their environment. Together, Montessori and Reggio create STEAM, a new concept in the field of early childhood education. From inception, both Montessori and Reggio have incorporated science, technology, engineering, art, and math as core components of their respective curriculum. Our unique approach at Villa Montessori blends these concepts to better connect a child to their peers, their families, their environment and their educational experiences,” said Ms. Kimberly.
