Montessori format of education has always been the top choice of parents due to its self-directed and paced approach that instills confidence, shapes a child's desire for learning, supports social-emotional development, and is a completely encouraging and engaging value-based method.
This 100-year-old has been effective then and now. However, due to a rise in the number of preschool businesses and dwindling awareness, the quality of Montessori education got diluted over the years.
Precious Moments Preschool took this opportunity to reignite the purposeful work of Montessori education while spreading awareness among parents and guardians about the difference between Waldorf and Montessori approaches.
Talking about the philosophy behind the early 20th-century education method, Miss Priyanka Bansal, owner/ program director/ enrollment coordinator at Precious Moments Preschool, shares, "People often believe that a Waldorf curriculum is more or less like a Montessori education. Although there are similarities, such as being child-centric, Montessori focuses more on real-life experiences. Many schools offer encouraging students to clean up the classroom after lunch break, model respectful and kind behavior with everyone, and seek positive ways to resolve conflicts."
In sharing the difference offered by her San Jose Montessori preschool, Priyanka says, "our education approach sets the Montessori method as its core with an amalgamation of STEAM-based lesson plans, play-based methodology, language-emersion and excerpts of Reggio Emilia philosophy."
"We take it a step further with STEAM," she adds. Short for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics, her San Jose Montessori preschool imparts the benefits of art while developing creative skills.
Reggio Emilia is another education philosophy the kids are exposed to at this Montessori preschool in San Jose. Originating after WW II in an Italian city, this style practices no fixed curriculum or lesson plans. Typically student-led, this method offers freedom to explore learning ways for students and however they wish to learn a subject.
