Full Day Mandarin Immersion Montessori School
Language learning is a long journey. Our school serve a significant population of children with no or little Chinese exposure at home. Our trained language teachers with master's degrees in teaching language who are bilingual and fluent in both Chinese and English help those children who have very little Chinese support outside of school feel right at home. Allow us to help your child learn the beauty of Chinese language and culture everyday in our Montessori Chinese immersion preschool program.
Our caring native speaking staff with advance degrees in education and music focused on early childhood development will provide an immersive learning environment for your child. Children's development and emotions are influenced by daily interactions with caring adults.. We believe that every child is gifted. They just unwrap their packages at different times. Children in our Center City Philadelphia Montessori School have freedom within limits to explore the environment as well as repeat their work freely based on their choice within a highly protected 3-hour work cycle each and everyday. We believe that through repetition based on personal choice, a child learns to master skills which build the foundations for a lifetime of learning. We use the Montessori toddler and early childhood curriculum taught by properly credentialed teachers in multi-aged classrooms. Our environment provides for child-directed work with daily uninterrupted work cycles. Our classroom is filled with authentic Montessori materials suggested by the American Montessori Society. Each classroom has a teacher who plays a musical instrument in order to provide daily musical interactions. We deeply respect Maria Montessori's sensitive periods for children which is why music learning and language acquisition is at the heart of our programs.
True to the Montessori philosophy, our classroom consists of children of mixed ages where older children can model for younger children and the younger children learn from the older children. We are thrilled to be an American Montessori Society pathway school. We strive to the very best school we can be for our families. As such, we have embarked on the journey with the American Montessori Society to join on the Pathway of Continuous Improvement of which we are proud to be on Step 6 out of 1.
