Leesburg, Virginia based Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg (VMPL) is pleased to announce that the school is finally reopening their doors following weeks of their students learning from home.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg was forced to suspend classes and begin educating students via home-based learning. After weeks of being closed, they are finally able to open their doors once again while practicing social distancing and proper hygiene. They are also encouraging parents to enrol their children as soon as possible as placements are limited. More information on how parents can schedule a virtual tour of the school can be found here: https://leesburg.villamontessoripreschool.com/.
As noted on their website, VMPL is a unique preschool designed for the curious and the adventurous child (between the ages of 18 months to six years). VMPL is considered by many to be the ideal preschool for parents who are looking for their child to experience unexpected, intriguing and innovative opportunities to further their understanding of the world. Heavily guided by each child’s interest, the school follows a syllabus that includes both the Montessori and Reggio curricula.
The school implements what is called the Montessori Method of Education—developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, a well-renowned pediatric psychiatrist. During her time in Rome, she was able to revolutionize early childhood education by implementing an approach that was very different from the norm. It follows the basic principle: follow the child. In line with this, at VMPL, children are able to discover their ability to complete complex math problems, name the continents, talk about scientific concepts and more. The teachers play the role of guides as the children under their care develop their own independence and self-confidence through hands-on experience. Lessons are given, but the goal is for children to discover answers by using auto-didactic or self-correcting materials. Such materials are found only in Montessori classrooms.
VMPL also explains that people are beginning to see that the traditional idea of “rote memory” learning is archaic. With information easily available, it is of utmost importance for kids to not only memorize facts but also to ask more questions. VMPL states that the Reggio approach helps a child develop the higher critical thinking skills necessary to understand what questions they want to ask. As such, they nurture students so that they are comfortable expressing their perceptions of the world. With access to shelves that are open and full of hands-on projects to investigate, the teachers simply observe, listen and present provocations (projects targeting the interests of the children), sprouting new insights and creating new possibilities for them.
Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg highly values the satisfaction of their children’s parents, and they do their best to improve based on feedback. They encourage parents to take a look at a number of video testimonials, uploaded at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGPpdAOInOwV4otAB_Jm_nrGyPd3OlNH1, to learn more.
For instance, Christina G. says in ine 5-Star Google review, “Villa Montessori Preschool was so amazing, I would recommend it to anyone else, near or far. The arts and science Reggio incorporation is everything I expected, and I am confident that my child will learn, grow, prosper and be ready to excel as she gets older.”
In another glowing Google review, Emily B. says, “I have been so pleased with the preschool experience at Villa Montessori. Each individual at the school, from the administration to my son's teachers, showed great care and interest in us, starting from the very first day we went in to tour the building. My son has grown academically, more than I could have ever hoped for. But more importantly for me, I see him to be more socially and emotionally aware. I've witnessed his kindness and compassion towards his classmates and even strangers, and I attribute that to the daily practices of his classroom. The teachers have high expectations but also have the needed patience, flexibility and experience to nurture all those little minds and bodies. As a result, it's been wonderful to see my child exceed those expectations with a high level of independence and grace.”
Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg believes in fostering a child’s natural sense of joy and wonder, allowing them to indulge in their own creativity. They assert that they want students to love school and learning, and they foster this by tapping into each child’s natural curiosity about the world.
