Montessori is an type of education that focuses on a child’s natural learning and growing curves. They are an alternative to traditional public schooling or Catholic private schooling in the United States and beyond.
One Montessori school is called Star Bright Montessori and it’s located in Anaheim, California. Their website says that they provide early childhood education for children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years. They’re open from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and give parents the option of full or part time childcare.
They also offer free potty training for their students, sibling discounts to their already affordable tuition, and a qualified staff of Montessori-trained teachers.
Star Bright Montessori has a toddler program and a preschool program. The toddlers have a room that is set up to help them achieve independence by taking are of their own needs as much as possible. The preschool program builds on the toddler program by continuing the same type of learning they did previously but also welcomes new children who have started their education elsewhere.
They also offer a program called “Parent-Child” program, which is a one hour program on Saturdays. The course introduces parents to the Montessori method and also lets them participate in a Montessori classroom.
Children are accepted into Star Bright Montessori school via an application that can be submitted through the mail, in person, or by email. Kids’ spaces are reserved once the application has been accepted and the first month’s tuition deposit has gone through. Parents also have the option (and, in fact, are encouraged to) tour the school before applying for admission.
Parents interested in applying for Star Bright Montessori school can check out their Open House event on August 30, 2014, from 10 am to 12 pm.
