Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg, Virginia, has announced that a new academic year has just started following in the heels of their successful summer programs. They now want to encourage new parents to enroll their children in the preschool. Enrollment is possible all year-round but this would depend on the availability of classrooms and teachers. Those who would like to get an idea of what happens inside the preschool classroom can take a look at the video at https://www.facebook.com/villamontessorileesburg/videos/2358019211123902.
Ms. Kimberly, the School Director for Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg, says, “We would like to announce that our summer programs have concluded successfully and we have just started a new academic year. Parents who are interested in enrolling their children at a preschool are therefore encouraged to attend one of our open houses. For those who prefer it, a private tour or an experience day can also be arranged. In the experience day, children spend time learning in the school so that they are able to experience the Montessori difference.”
Ms. Kimberly continues, “Villa Montessori Preschool Open House dates are scheduled throughout the year. The most recent one was held on August 10, 2019. Parents may want to like the preschool's Facebook page in order to be notified about upcoming events and register to attend an open house. We also share what the students are doing, interesting videos, and articles regarding early childhood education on our Facebook page.” For more information regarding the open house and experience days, parents can check out https://leesburg.villamontessoripreschool.com/open-houses-experience-days.
The Montessori classroom has been designed in such a way that the kids are encouraged to work independently. This is important because unlike the standard curriculum where teachers spoon feed information to the students, the children experience the joy of discovering things on their own. The teachers take on the role of guides for the children, showing them different materials from which the children can choose, depending on their current interests. While lessons are also conducted, the goal is to allow the students to use the self-correcting or auto-didactic materials in the Montessori classroom to discover information on their own.
In the Montessori early childhood education, the benefit for the kids is that they are able to develop their self-confidence and independence. The teachers try to foster curiosity in the children regarding certain subjects through inspiring projects. However, it is the kids who make a decision on what kind of project to pursue.
Meanwhile, the Reggio Emilia method for early childhood education aims to develop higher critical thinking skills in the children. It is those critical thinking skills that the children use to come up with appropriate questions that will allow them to learn certain principles. This is very different from the regular method of letting the students memorize information. With such a system, the children are able to develop their critical thinking skills and their creativity.
The teachers take on the role of co-learners and collaborators with their students when using the Reggio approach. Through careful observation, the teachers are able to uncover the real interests of the child. They then promote deeper learning experiences for the kids and provide a variety of opportunities for the students to further enhance their knowledge regarding their interests.
In the Reggio approach, the environment also functions as a teacher. Through the different materials available in the classroom environment, the children are able to develop their unique interests. The shelves of the classroom for the Reggio curriculum are filled with hands-on projects that the children can perform to further explore their interests.
