Our preschool program offers a carefully chosen environment in order to maintain an enriched Montessori culture that provides great opportunities for success. Our primary goal is to always give children a chance to learn, and allow them to concentrate and focus on the task at hand in an uninterrupted, peaceful environment. The AmeriMont Academy preschools incorporate a wide range of teaching methods designed to stimulate the developing mind and create a cultured, knowledgeable, well-rounded individual. It’s all part of our exciting, active curriculum that transforms students into confident, thriving, capable adults.
Our PhilosophyOur philosophy is to offer a comprehensive Montessori enriched program that builds a foundation not only with strong academics, technology integration, but also that of being a good person. We offer optional activities after school, potty training at no additional charge, a year end concert and graduation, webcams and consistent communication with our families.Historically schools have existed to teach children to listen, be quiet, and all learn the same thing at the same time. This format inevitably limits a child’s personal growth. Many times these children become disruptive and are labeled as troublesome. Dr. Montessori found that if you appropriately challenge a child and allow them to advance at their own pace, they become very motivated and independently challenge themselves. A child is like a sponge, the younger they are, the easier it is for them to grow and excel. It is an enriching experience to witness a child’s self-confidence and skills skyrocket as they progress and achieve success in our classrooms. Children in our schools participate in yoga, say grace, learn manners, virtues, and as young as two years old have been able to master the capitals to the fifty states, learn their sounds and begin doing addition. We are an all inclusive environment that provides instruction in Math, Language, Spanish, Sign Language, Yoga, Science, Geography, Zoology, Practical Life, Culture and Computers. We offer parents the opportunity to login and view our secure webcam system to ensure how well cared for and happy their child is when they are away. At AmeriMont Academy, our slogan is: “Achieving Excellence through Education” …and we truly are.
Our CurriculumOur teachers assess each child and introduce the materials that is best suited for the student. Montessori children are exposed to a positive approach to learning through self-paced challenges and accomplishments. Without being compared to others, the child thrives and becomes increasingly motivated. When done correctly, the Montessori Method instills confidence, self-discipline and a positive attitude toward learning. Dr. Maria Montessori devised the “prepared environment” to allow children to develop at their own speed. The goal is to motivate and stimulate a child to want to learn. We have implemented a prepared environment at AmeriMont Academy with cubbies, shelves, materials, jobs, and numerous replicas of the materials Dr. Maria Montessori made herself. Our classrooms have incorporated 21st Century teaching methodologies to support the traditional Montessori method. Our incorporated technology includes interactive SMARTboard use, that allows teachers to offer a different learning process. Students will gain a better understanding of lessons, while still making learning fun, engaging, and interactive. Students will have an opportunity to work with supervised educational programs on iPad devices for individualized learning each week.
