“Montessori gives your child a strong basis in the most formative and important years for developing into a responsible, happy and fulfilled person.”
Our holistic mission of education focuses on the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical needs of the child. The main elements of this approach include individualized experiences that encourage children to become self-directed learners and innovative problem-solvers, multi-age classes within which children support and learn from one another, and a focus on nurturing respect for oneself and others.
Our programs are designed to support children in their most important work: to become independent, compassionate, lifelong learners.
MMI blends the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori with today’s best practices in child development. Together, we nurture children into compassionate, independent, lifelong learners.
Modern Montessori International welcomes children, families and employees of any race, color, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation, national, religious, or ethnic origin in administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid and loan programs, other school-administered programs.
Goals and Objectives
To provide an expansive knowledge of all facets of early childhood development so that we can design a curriculum that makes a difference. Establishing broad-based learning goals provides a framework for lesson plans and individualized assessment strategies. Coordinating goals with age-appropriate content ensures that preschool children will have the best opportunity for success.
Helping our children develop the social and interpersonal skills which is important goal for MMI teachers. Referred to as social competence, social and interpersonal skills enable preschool children to communicate effectively with their peers and function successfully in a school setting. This strong connection between social competence and the ability for children to follow directions, maintain an attention span and listen effectively.
