Hello my name is Cristina Trengove I am the founder of Learning Montessori. I am a certified Montessori teacher and I also completed 24 Units of Early Childhood Education. I have worked with children for more than 15 years, I am a Positive Discipline instructor and have a background as a Life Coach.
We offer a place where children are taught in a loving, caring way. Our program is based on the Montessori method and we are bilingual English-Spanish. We believe that every child is unique, and we focus on their strengths. Children are exposed to a rich environment where the child can engage in a diversity of activities.
Our environment is designed for children to explore, learn and use their imagination. In a regular basis children explore art and activities that help develop their small motor skills. Children are exposed to songs, dance, garden and outside fun activities. We provide healthy meals and promote positive habits.
Montessori education starts at a very early age and continues through preschool and beyond. We are building steps into the future as as they will discover how special children are. We create a balance between fun and educational activities creating a positive environment for them to enjoy learning.
We value, encourage and teach values such as kindness, friendliness, independence, respect and self-control. All the lessons will help children to succeed later in life. We promote Emotional intelligence and we teach about empathy, positive communication, and cooperation. We read the Rhyming Bible and may say a prayer before lunch time.
Learning Montessori is a place to discover and a place to where children can have a positive experience. We work with infants, toddlers, preschool age, and kindergarten. Children will experience learning through structured curriculum and individual lessons. Each child learns at their own pace. Montessori method is focused on helping children to develop their own potential. We encourage kids to develop a love for learning. We have a regular daily schedule. Our curriculum include Art, Science, Math, Language Songs and Practical Life. Our goal is to nurture and offer an enrich, fun learning environment. We open during the whole year and we have a 1 week off during the Summer time and 2 weeks off during the Winter time.
On a daily basis we create a positive environment where kids can learn and explore through interacting with others and the curriculum. Our classroom is designed to promote concentration, self confidence, and a love for learning. We create a place where children feel safe and are cared for.
