What Sets Apple Montessori Apart from Traditional Education Providers
For nearly 50 years, families have discovered and appreciated the Apple Montessori difference first-hand in helping guide their children into becoming kind, successful, and happy individuals who develop a lifelong love of learning. Apple’s modern Montessori approach and curriculum develops well-rounded, confident, and capable children who become purposeful members of our families, communities, and the world.
The Apple Montessori Difference:
Individualized, hands-on learning. With the understanding that each child is unique, the welcoming, modern Montessori classroom environment offers structured freedom—sparking curiosity and encouraging your child to learn in a meaningful way at their own pace.
Our proprietary reading program advances reading skills. By using our unique phonics-based reading program, most children are reading by the age of four.
Mixed-age classrooms foster peer-to-peer teaching and learning. Older children mentor and set an example for the younger children, which exercises their leadership abilities and contributes to greater self-confidence. Younger students look to older classmates as role models, which helps them visualize and model their future growth and learning path.
Fostering a partnership for your child’s education. Together, Apple Montessori Schools’ teachers and families work in partnership for a child’s development and education. Through ongoing parent-teacher communications, special events, and a dedicated online parent portal we work together to nurture and support your child both academically, emotionally, and socially.
Focusing on the whole child helps children develop emotionally and academically. Our whole-child- focused curriculum helps children thrive beyond academics. We assist children in recognizing the skills and gifts they have to offer to make the world a better place. We help them establish, understand and respect their values and those of others. Our focus includes character development and teaching courtesy, graciousness, respectfulness, and interpersonal skills, while appreciating and celebrating diversity and all cultures as a global citizen. Nurturing the whole child is at the core of what we do.
It is not true, said Dr. Montessori, that I invented what is called the Montessori Method. I have studied the child, I have taken what the child has given me and expressed it, and that is what is called the Montessori Method.
What Sets Apple Apart
Guided by the principles of Maria Montessori, our modern Montessori goes beyond the traditional Montessori philosophy to provide an enriching environment where structured freedom creates the foundation for a lifetime of happiness and success. Apple Montessori Schools’ nurturing educators, modern Montessori approach, and abundance of multi-sensory materials create an unmatched early childhood learning experience.
