Seventeen years ago I set out on a mission to open a preschool. It couldn’t be just any preschool. It had to be a school that would offer an exceptional curriculum, in a loving, nurturing environment, at an affordable price. I blended the best of the Montessori method with a Literature based curriculum and a dash of traditional preschool. I am proud to say that we have a successful, joyful, AMAZING little school!
"Follow the child." Maria Montessori, a master teacher whose ideas were ahead of her time, spoke these wise words. She recognized that each child is unique and will respond to different stimuli. All children benefit from a safe, loving, structured, educational environment. The Children's Schoolhouse of Collegeville will provide such an environment.
The Children's Schoolhouse of Collegeville has blended the best of the Montessori method with traditional pre-school and literature based instruction to create our own unique curriculum. High quality children's literature serves as a springboard for a variety of lessons including; reading readiness, number awareness, social skills, fine and gross motor skills. We use a wide range of literary genres such as; picture books, folk tales, poetry, fables, informational books, fiction and nonfiction.
The literature based curriculum teaches and fosters literacy while indulging in a child's natural curiosity and joy of learning.
