Kids First Montessori preschool is committed to provide the highest quality education for your child in a safe, well-prepared Montessori environment that is rich in language, math, culture, science and geography. We strive to give your child the best possible experience in our preschool by cultivating a love for learning and shaping a strong foundation which will last a lifetime.
Kids First Montessori preschool follows the philosophy of Maria Montessori and early childhood Reggio Emilia program based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment based on the interests of the children through a self-guided curriculum. Maria Montessori emphasized the need for early education and wrote, “The most important period of life is not the university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to six. For that is the time when man’s intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed.” We truly believe that a well-prepared environment will foster the child’s highest potential–spiritually, emotionally, physically, socially, and intellectually. When these needs are met, children radiate with excitement, inspiring them to play and work with enthusiasm, to learn, and to create. They exhibit a desire to teach, to help, and to care for others and for their environment.
Each child is respected and is treated as a valued individual.
The children progress at their own pace and successfully complete the self-correcting exercises. They develop confidence in their ability to understand their achievement.
The children are encouraged to teach, collaborate, and help each other.
The mixed-age group creates self-confidence for the older ones by being able to be a role model and help the younger ones.
