Virtual Curriculum Night – Thursday, November 5th, 2020

beyond traditional expectations, Montessori Method, scientific pedagogy, cultivate self-awareness

Join us at our  Virtual Open House Curriculum Information Night, we are excited to take you on a virtual tour of our school and highlight our curriculum programs from Toddler to Junior High.

Education is perhaps the most critical component of a child’s development, with a legacy that permeates throughout his/her lifetime. As parents, we want to give our children the best start, and most importantly our children need to feel fulfilled, happy, inspired and nurtured.

One of the greatest benefits of Montessori education is building real-life skills that carry over when it is time to enter the workforce. Problem-solving, creativity, team work and responsibility run through the veins of a Montessori child.

At Dearcroft Montessori School our experienced staff take great pride in offering a warm and engaging environment for students providing programs for toddlers to grade 8.

A Montessori education consciously designs social communities and educational experiences that cultivate the child’s sense of self-awareness and empathy. Montessori learning environments allow for the respect and celebration of individual spirit within people of all ages.

Casa Curriculum Information Session (Language/Culture)

Join us for the Language/Culture Casa  Curriculum Information Session

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

2:15 p.m.- 3:15 p.m.

Mrs. Campbell, Director of Programming, along with Casa and Toddler teaching staff, will be hosting Casa Curriculum Sessions for Dearcroft parents in order to provide more information on the Montessori approach to the core curriculum areas in our Casa program.

Maria Montessori once said the child has a mind able to absorb knowledge.  The child has the power to teach himself.  Every child is born with the potential to create language and children absorb language unconsciously and through the child, language passes from generation to generation.  We as the adults must realize the importance of language and give the child an opportunity to create and explore with language.  We must understand that language is not the method of teaching, because it is the child who develops it, we must help children love language so they will enjoy it.

This important information is why we are inviting you to attend our Casa Curriculum Session on Language/Culture – to find out how language and culture is taught in a Montessori environment and why it works.

Please mark in your calendars all three Casa Curriculum Sessions:

2.  Wednesday, October 2nd – Language/Culture

3.  Wednesday, October 16th – Practical Life/Sensorial/Developmental Milestones

If you haven’t already, please confirm your attendance with Susanne Homer  (info@dearcroft-montessori.com) at your earliest convenience.

We hope to see you there!

A Montessori education, due to its unique ability to identify and nurture individual strengths, does a remarkable job of creating graduates who go on to change the world. The founders of Google, Amazon and Wikipedia are fine examples of innovative, creative and fearless entrepreneurs who started their academic journeys in Montessori classrooms. They never stopped learning and continue to push boundaries… creating exciting new paradigms within their chosen fields. Their business cultures are outstanding examples of meaningful change and as individuals they have emerged as world ambassadors of inspired leadership.

Spring has Sprung and our Toddlers are dressed and prepared for the fun outdoors!

Spring has Sprung! Our Toddlers are jumping into the  season with such joy!

Spring is here and our Toddlers can’t wait to jump in the mud puddles and run around outside!

“We’re glad mom and dad dressed us for outdoor play – boots, splash pants and mittens will keep us warm and dry!”

We’re wearing Muddy Buddies – super cute and practical, but not required! 🙂
