A Better Education
The conformity and rigid curriculums of traditional education are outdated and limit the potential for growth and development in students. Montessori schools, however, allow children the freedom to learn at their own pace and develop a love for learning that benefits them for the rest of their lives. Our holistic approach to education focuses on each child’s desire to explore his/her environment in a relaxed and rich setting.
Here at Countryside Montessori in Lapeer, MI, we are dedicated to acting in your child’s best educational interests. We offer full and half-day preschool sessions along with before and after school care for our students and their siblings.
A Montessori Education
The Montessori philosophy of education began with Dr. Maria Montessori and her work with children from all different socio-economic backgrounds. She discovered that children have sensitive periods for learning and developed a way of helping children reach their full potential through a holistic approach.
A Montessori school captures each child’s natural desire to learn. A large part of our approach is to foster the independence that each child yearns for. An education at Countryside Montessori will promote and develop your child’s curiosity, exploration, and an innate desire for learning.
“The goal of early education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.”
– Dr. Maria Montessori
