"Many Montessori graduates have become top business leaders or famous artists," says Kelly McFarland, Director of La Jolla Montessori School, a private, English/Spanish bilingual school for children aged 18 months thru Kindergarten.

The Montessori focus is teaching children to think differently via a one-on-one methodology that starts early on. "We teach students a 'how and why' conceptual approach. These systems have been instrumental in building the foundations of workplace leaders and famous individuals," McFarland says.

Montessori builds thinkers, leaders and entrepreneurs because they have been taught how to learn without fear of failure. By making mistakes, practicing and assimilating with age-ranged peers, students succeed at their own speed.

The Montessori Method is renowned for igniting a lifelong love of learning in children.

This long-term motivation inspires them to assimilate, solve problems and pursue a calling--no matter how unattainable it may seem. Children are given love and a positive space to foster creativity and independence. With guidance, they have a greater chance to succeed.

"Who knows? Perhaps your child will become a famous Montessori alumni!" McFarland exclaimed. "One thing for sure though: A Montessori preschool and Kindergarten start will give your children an early edge on their way towards accomplishing future success."

La Jolla Montessori School, a private bilingual preschool thru Kindergarten program, builds your child's skill sets at every turn. The school is located one block west of I-5 at La Jolla Village Drive just minutes from UCSD. To watch a virtual tour or to schedule an in-person tour, please visit: (
