The Important Period of Life

Early Development

“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when mans intelligence itself, his greatest implemented is being formed.”

Dr. Maria Montessori

 

The child in the early years tells us he is capable of understanding and storing information to be used at the time when a child is most capable of putting the information into practice which has been stored for this exact moment. While some believe it may be difficult for a child to absorb multiple languages your children are at the most critical time. They have been developing language since birth, each moment in a child’s life is an opportunity for growth. We know each child around the world has the ability to absorb the language and culture of there own environment. We continue to create opportunities for your child’s growth through our newly developing French program. To stimulate there five senses through the creation of the materials and the environment. Whether it be practical life, culture, mathematics, or a new language the materials will be specifically designed to produce the best learning outcomes. Without preconceived notions and thoughts, we allow the child’s mind to develop through observation during these sensitive years.

 

Each child given the opportunity for growth will always choose the path to which it will mould their own development through their senses and their life skills towards independence. During the sensitive years, we just need to speak languages and they absorb, as we continue to meet the needs of the child.
