Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

From the Director:

Little Wonders Montessori Preschool is set up in a two-part structure composed of two separate schools, one dedicated to early preschool curriculum and basic progressive Montessori activities (20 months through 3 years), the other focusing on a kindergarten prep curriculum and more advanced Montessori activities (3 to 6 years). We offer rolling admission and accept students at any age between 20 months and 5 years.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Little Wonders follows the traditional Montessori teaching method. Our philosophy is effective yet simple. Because the preschool years are some of the most important years in a child's social, physical, psychological, verbal and sensory development, our school is dedicated to the positive growth and development of the children registered at our facility. Little Wonders offers children a warm, attentive school setting and an unique approach to education. We have adopted the best ideas from several educational philosophies and blended them together to produce a very special educational experience.
