Welcome to Seville Bayside Montessori! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to tell you more about our program. We hope to work with you and your child in order to develop a deep love of learning that will last a lifetime. Here at Seville Bayside Montessori we feel that every child deserves a good education, and we are here to provide them with just that! We want you to know that when you leave your child in our care, your child will be experiencing their world in an environment that has been designed just for them! If you have not seen our classrooms, please schedule a tour in order to really understand our philosophy. You will notice that chairs and tables are sized to comfortably seat a child, not an adult. All shelving is at an accessible height for children to get their materials off the shelves independently allowing them to choose their works according to their inner drive. The cozy environment filled with lamps, plants, pillows and rugs helps the child to feel relaxed and inspired while teaching them to move respectfully and with purpose. All of the Montessori materials have a specific place on the shelf and have an individual purpose.
While your child is with us, they will feel that “work” is play.Your child needs to put pegs into the pegboard, learn how to tie their shoe, pour their own juice, polish the leaves of a plant and take their turn with the “Mystery Bag”.We encourage your child to explore, experience, understand and learn.Through a wide variety of materials, your child will develop the values of cooperation, sharing and respect. Why are these activities so important and engaging to children? Children are trying to figure out the world around them. They want to do what they see their mentors and leaders do. It allows them to be in control of their own environment and it gives them the opportunity to do meaningful, engaging work instead of random activity.
Your child will be guided through a variety of different Montessori activities in : Practical Life, Sensorial works, Mathematics, Language, Physical Science, Ecology, Geology, Botany, Zoology, Geography, History, Astronomy, Music and Art.
The staff at The Seville Bayside Montessoriwould like to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing us to share an important time in the life of your child.We appreciate and value the trust you have placed in us.Please don’t ever hesitate to ask us questions or make comments or give suggestions.
