What is Preschool?
Preschool is ideally a time when your children will learn how to best interact with others in positive ways, recognize and appreciate the world around them, and take the first few steps toward independence. We see these formative years as a perfect time to help foster a healthy curiosity in all children, engage their natural creativity, and reinforce strong communal values of respect, courtesy and responsibility. The Montessori system is ideal toward this end, and we take great pride in letting your children mature as they develop their own self-awareness. Even at this young age, children begin to show individual personality traits, habits and unique voices. We’ll work to help your children discover themselves and their interests, as well as how best to communicate with others.
Our Preschool Program
Children up to six years old possess the greatest ability to learn than at any other time in their lives. That’s why finding the right preschool program is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make as parents. Our signature preschool program offers guided independent activities and various learning opportunities that will inspire your children to become more engaged and excited about the world around them. We incorporate every child’s learning style into the curriculum we share, and help our students communicate with compassion and respect. From forming the foundations of knowledge with basic math concepts to learning about shapes, colors and textures — every activity we oversee has a cognitive and social-building aspect to it. By engaging the children in fun, creative and hands-on activities, we help them mature their gross motor, social and critical thinking skills.

Fostering Independence and Self-Awareness
As children mature, they want more independence to explore and learn about the world around them. We offer a safe and supportive environment that feeds this hunger for independence and gives them opportunities to communicate how they feel, what they think and what they need. Our signature Montessori method allows each child to reach out and have some control over their activities while encouraging them to find a common ground to share their feelings and thoughts with others. At BellaVision Montessori School, we use the “whole child approach.” This methodology recognizes that no two children are the same, so we nurture every aspect of your child’s development at his or her own pace.
Parental Collaboration as the Child Matures
At BellaVision Montessori School, we believe very young children have an innate desire to take care of their own needs. Key components of our program include a prepared environment, meaningful activities and collaboration between parents and teachers. As children near the age of three, they start to display signs that they’re ready to move up. Language skills will increase and enthusiasm for independence in many aspects of their daily activities will grow. During this time, we’ll develop a plan with you that incorporates independence in potty training and other self-care needs. We always value parental input, and we’re here to help guide your children toward success.
