Villa Montessori Preschool Columbus, a preschool based in Columbus, Ohio, has announced with pride that one of its teachers, Miss Jenna Schoeck, has recently received her International Montessori Teaching Diploma. In addition, she is a favorite among the students, teachers, and parents. This is a certification from the North American Montessori Center (NAMC) that is essential for Montessori teachers. A photo of Miss Jenna showing off her certification was posted on their Facebook page at

Tamye Crutchfield, the School Director at Villa Montessori Preschool Columbus, says, “We’re truly excited and happy to know that Miss Jenna Schoeck has earned and completed her International Montessori Teaching Diploma. It should be noted that our school maintains high standards of excellence among its staff, and it shows in the positive feedback received from students and parents.”

She adds, “Each of our teachers has been hand-picked to make sure your child’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.”

Their Montessori classrooms have been specifically designed to encourage curiosity in the children, allow them to experience hands-on learning, and develop self-confidence. This is valuable because the preschool years establish the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

Villa Montessori Preschool Columbus offers the Toddler class for toddlers who are 12 months to 2.5 years old; the Pre-Primary class for children ages 2.5 to 3 years old; the Primary class for children who are 3 to 6 years old; and the Kindergarten program. Their full-day kindergarten curriculum includes units that combine art, language, math, history, science, geography, and cultural studies.

The Montessori Method, which was founded by Dr. Maria Montessori, is based on the principle to “follow the child.” This means that it is the child who will be followed with regards to what he or she wants to focus on. Thus, the Montessori environment allows the children to work independently and experience the joy of self-discovery. In contrast to the conventional classroom where the teachers deliver lectures, the teachers in the Montessori classroom simply guide the students by providing materials that the children can freely choose from.

And despite the open environment, where the children are allowed to discover things for themselves, they are able to grow academically. Through their discoveries, they are able to master the ability to discuss scientific concepts, write beautifully, determine geometric shapes, name the continents, and solve complex math problems. However, it is important to note that the key aspect of the preschool’s educational mission is not about academics but instead, it is to promote and improve each child’s feeling of wonder and enjoyment in discovering things about life. Tamye Crutchfield explains, “We want students to love school and the process of learning. Maria Montessori’s idea ‘that education is not a chore, but a joyous exploration of life’s mysteries’ is the most important lesson that we hope to teach our children.”

Meanwhile, the curriculums at Villa Montessori Preschool Columbus are also Reggio inspired. It is based on the observation that children naturally want to learn and that it is essential to permit them to be an active participant on what they are learning. The Reggio Emilia approach was established by Loris Malaguzzi and is an early childhood education approach designed to help children develop their higher critical thinking skills that are required to understand what questions they need to ask to learn something about a particular topic. In the Reggio inspired approach, an emergent curriculum is provided that is based on a few key concepts to guide the children along the path to learning more about the subject that they are interested in.
