What is Montessori?

New to Montessori? Want to learn more about what Montessori offers? There are significant differences between a Montessori School and a preschool or daycare. 
In a traditional daycare or preschool setting, children are required to follow strict schedule expectations and activity outlines that can stifle their natural creativity and inquisitive nature. At Galileo Montessori Academy, we allow our young learners to broaden their perspectives by encouraging them to engage in self-directed play. What does this mean?
Self-directed play does not mean that your child is not getting educational attention from their teacher. Instead, self-directed play means that your child has the freedom to play, and that through this play, your child learns his or her world through a creative and communal lens. Instead of demanding that your child draws with crayons during a half-hour art block, we allow your child to naturally gravitate towards art and our skilled teachers lead your child by encouraging creative expression and the necessary skill-sets. Our staff knows how to integrate educational measures into your child’s natural creativity, which makes for a much happier learner who is able explore the world in their own way.

Galileo Montessori Academy is committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for our students. We value connecting with our students through compassion and careful planning. Galileo Montessori Academy promotes the positive and healthy development of young children as we guide them to be empathetic and determined learners. 
Our staff is made up of compassionate educators who teach educational and communicational skills. They implement learning opportunities for your child’s physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. We prioritize a collaborative learning environment in which your child can engage in self-directed play while being given the opportunity to make creative choices about their learning through age-appropriate activities and guidance.
Through the Montessori method, your child is encouraged to be active, creative, and communicative. We are passionate about raising children to be independent, self-confident, and inquisitive learners both in the classroom and beyond. At Galileo Montessori Academy, we understand that children have unique abilities and interests, and we highly encourage their individualism by letting the children lead their own learning with our skilled staff’s support. At Galileo Montessori Academy, every child is provided with the gentle guidance and compassionate care that allows them to discover their world and themselves so they can become successful human beings.
