Countryside Montessori School and Day Care Center is a preschool and day care center located in Corona, California. Our program is based on the Montessori philosophy with an emphasis on quality education in a caring environment. We provide a child-centered, Montessori environment which s designed to meet the needs of each child in a nurturing way.
In a Montessori classroom, emphasis is placed on initiative, individual development and self-expression. Teacher instruction is led with the expectation that students will be active participants n the learning process. The teacher, therefore, serves as a nurturing guide on the child's path to education and self-discovery. As a result, children gain the confidence to draw upon their own abilities to synthesize information, think critically, and complete tasks. This approach maintains a balance between structure and fluidity. Finally the measures of success extend beyond quantitative terms to the overall development and growth of the child.
It is important to note that Dr. Montessori's methods are based on the philosophy that each child has unique potential and a unique path of development. The Montessori Program, therefore, is a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of the child's sensitive years from the time they are born through the ages they are capable of absorbing information from an enriched environment. By pursuing individual interests in a Montessori classroom, a child gains an early enthusiasm for learning which is the key to becoming a truly educated person.
