"The Shim Academy is more that just another Child Care Center. We at the Shim Academy instill in our students that learning is a life long process. We realize that the children have a natural spontaneous love of learning and natural desire to work. This is why we have committed ourselves to provide the environment, materials and the right conditions to which children will establish good work habits. The Shim Academy offers a positive atmosphere where children will develop self-confidence, self-esteem, independence, and self-discipline. They may choose to work with the Montessori material alone or with a partner, in doing so, the children will acknowledge their accomplishments and learn through their own efforts. Through movement, manipulation, and working with the material, the children will develop a sense of logic and order creating a firm foundation for future learning. The Shim Academy's goal is to develop sound bodies, stout hearts, and alert minds. The Montessori Method coupled with our unique blend of Eastern Philosophy education will provide the children with moral stamina and emotional durability needed to face the challenges that life will present. We strongly feel that within every child, there lies a uniqueness ready to explode, and each child is its own special creation and individual which can only blossom once given the freedom"
