WHAT WE OFFER

Positive Guidance

Our program is designed to encourage respect, independence, organization and self-control. We focus on positive reinforcement. We will help each child to understand what they feel and use appropriate methods to handle those feelings. When necessary, parent conferences may be requested.

Outdoor Play

Each room’s daily schedule includes at least two outdoor periods. The school is designed with three age appropriate outdoor play areas and one covered indoor area.

Programs

A Christmas program for parents and family is held once a year for ages three to five years. Two of our largest and most special events are our Fall Festival (October) and Celebrate Family Day (May). School parties are scheduled annually for the months of February, April, October, November, and December. Parents are encouraged to participate by attending. We offer special programs such as Yoga, music classes, and physical education. Other special programs are offered for an additional tuition, such as Spanish, and dance.

Why Choose The Montessori Method?

The Montessori Method is an approach to educating children based on the research and experiences of Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori (1870–1952). It arose essentially from Dr. Montessori’s discovery of what she referred to as “the child’s true normal nature” in 1907, which happened in the process of her experimental observation of young children given freedom in an environment prepared with materials designed for their self-directed learning activity. The Montessori method itself aims to duplicate this experimental observation of children to bring about, sustain and support their true natural way of being.

Mansfield Montessori’s Program

Applying the Montessori Method involves the teacher in viewing the child as having an inner natural guidance for his or her own perfect self-directed development. The role of the teacher (sometimes called director, directress, or guide) is therefore to watch over the environment to remove any obstacles that would interfere with this natural development. The teacher’s role of observation sometimes includes experimental interactions with children, commonly referred to as “lessons,” to resolve misbehavior or to show how to use the various self-teaching materials that are provided in the environment for the children’s free use.

A Private Montessori Education for Mansfield, TX

The method is primarily applied with young children (2–6), due to the young child’s unique instincts and sensitivity to conditions in the environment (check out our curriculum). However, the montessori method is sometimes conducted with elementary age (6–12) children and occasionally with infants and toddlers, as well as at the middle and high school level.

Words cannot adequately express the appreciation that I have for the teachers and staff at Mansfield Montessori at Walnut Creek...Each one of their teachers has had a hand in helping to motivate and encourage learning in one child as well as calming another child so that learning can be fun. For all of their efforts, I am truly thankful!
