Philosophy and Purpose

Philosophy:

VMS is an affordable and enriched environment wherein children can grow to fulfill their potential.  We believe in the “whole child” approach.  Our activities promote the development of social skills, emotional growth, and physical coordination, as well as provide cognitive preparation for young children.

Our Program is based on learning activities that make use of Montessori materials to help lay the foundation for future learning.  We also offer a typical Montessori curriculum incorporating art, music and drama into the traditional emphasis on Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, Science and Cultural Subjects.

We invite your child to come live, love and learn with us!

 

Purpose:

VMS offers parents the security of knowing that their children are receiving the best care and developmental guidance available, by providing an academic curriculum in the comfort of a loving, family-oriented environment.  Our goal is to nurture a healthy child: independent, self-confident, social and motivated.

Dr. Maria Montessori felt that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts from a pre-selected course of studies, but rather to cultivate his own natural desire to learn.  At Victoria Montessori this objective is approached in two ways:  first, by allowing each child to experience the excitement of learning by his own choice rather than by being forced; and second, by helping him to perfect all of his natural tools for learning, so that his ability will be at a maximum, in future learning situations.  The Montessori materials have this dual long-range purpose, in addition to their immediate purpose of giving specific information to the child.

 

The Child is both a hope and a promise for mankind.

-Dr. Maria Montessori
