Many new parents need a preschool that is commuter-friendly for the I 680, and what could be better than Learn And Play Montessori in Danville? It is ideally situated for kids from San Ramon, Alamo, Walnut Creek, Diablo, Blackhawk, Tassajara, and Brookshire.
At our Danville, California, Montessori school, we are part of a group of six preschools in Fremont, Dublin, and now Danville which is our newest adventure. Our mission is to let our children learn how to become self-confident and motivated individuals. Note that we said “let them learn”. The Montessori Method provides a place for children to learn at their own pace and with things that interest them.
We have a wide range of specialist materials at Learn and Play Montessori of and the way the Method works is to let the child choose what he wants to learn and then use the tools appropriately. Since the child is interested in what he is doing he tends to learn faster than simply sitting in a class listening to a teacher talking, or alternatively reading a book. If you stop to think about it this makes a lot of sense because the child learns because he wants to rather than because he is told to.
The Brain Develops Rapidly In The First Six Years Of Life
The brain develops rapidly during the first six years of life and absorbs an incredible amount of information that we go on to use for the rest of our lives. Therefore, it is important that we let the child learn what it needs to learn in the way that is best suited to the individual child. Every child is unique. The Montessori Method recognizes that and understands that some children learn faster than others. So at Danville‘s best Montessori program, we let the child learn at his own pace. Children who learn more slowly than their peers are not criticized or made to feel that they are inadequate, and equally the quicker learners are not held back: they are encouraged to develop further.
This is one of the reasons that we allow children to work and learn on their own or within a group and why the groups span a range of ages – typically three years. Younger children can learn from the older ones and the group forms a social unit where the older children show younger ones what they have learned, which in turn underlines their own learning. The children learn respect and tolerance for one another, and care for themselves and others and for the world in which we live.
The Montessori Method turns out children who are well-rounded and understand how the world works, which in turn makes them fine and valuable citizens of the future.
