At Treasure Village Montessori, we proudly embrace the Montessori approach to education, a child-centered philosophy that values each student as a unique individual. Our commitment to the Montessori method ensures an enriching and transformative learning experience for all our students.
In our Montessori classrooms, we create an environment that fosters independence, self-motivation, and a deep love for learning. Students are given the freedom to explore their interests and learn at their own pace, guided by our certified Montessori teachers who act as facilitators and mentors.
Central to the Montessori approach is the use of specially designed learning materials that engage students' senses and support their natural curiosity. These materials provide concrete, hands-on experiences that allow students to grasp abstract concepts and develop a solid foundation of knowledge.
Our Montessori classrooms are carefully prepared, inviting students to engage in purposeful work and self-directed exploration. Through carefully selected activities, students develop concentration, problem-solving skills, and the ability to work independently, promoting their intellectual and personal growth.
The Montessori approach also emphasizes the importance of respect for oneself, others, and the environment. Students learn to be responsible and contribute positively to their community, fostering a sense of empathy, compassion, and social awareness.
By embracing the Montessori method, we cultivate a lifelong love for learning, critical thinking, and self-confidence in our students. At Treasure Village Montessori, we believe in empowering each child to become an active, engaged learner who is equipped with the skills and mindset necessary for success in the 21st century and beyond.
Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Dr. Maria Montessori that emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and a child-centered learning environment. It focuses on the holistic development of a child—intellectual, social, emotional, and physical—through self-directed activities, hands-on learning, and respect for each child's unique learning style.
Montessori education differs from traditional education in several ways. Montessori classrooms are designed to promote independence and active learning, with teachers acting as guides rather than lecturers. Students have the freedom to choose their activities and work at their own pace, allowing for individualized learning. The Montessori approach also emphasizes multi-age classrooms, mixed-age groupings, and the use of specially designed Montessori materials to support hands-on learning.
Montessori education can benefit children of all backgrounds, interests, and abilities. Its flexible and individualized approach allows for adaptation to meet the needs of each child. Montessori classrooms provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where children can develop at their own pace, fostering a love for learning and promoting the development of essential life skills.
Montessori teachers are trained professionals who observe and understand each student's unique learning style, interests, and needs. They provide individualized guidance, support, and carefully designed lessons to meet the developmental stage of each child. Montessori teachers act as facilitators, fostering a love for learning, encouraging critical thinking, and promoting independence in students.
Yes, Montessori schools are academically rigorous. The Montessori approach provides a solid academic foundation while promoting deeper understanding and critical thinking. Students engage in self-directed learning, actively exploring concepts and making connections across subjects. The Montessori curriculum covers a wide range of subjects, including language arts, mathematics, sciences, cultural studies, and more, preparing students for success in higher education and beyond.
Montessori education places great emphasis on social development. Multi-age classrooms encourage collaboration, mentoring, and peer learning, promoting a sense of community and cooperation. Students learn to respect and appreciate each other's differences, develop effective communication skills, and cultivate empathy and compassion. Montessori classrooms provide opportunities for students to engage in group activities, problem-solving, and conflict resolution, preparing them for successful social interactions in the future.
Ms. Jessica and Ms. Margret’s 2/3 Class had a blast at their end of the year party at Boondocks in Ramrod Key.
Earlier this spring, The Coral Restoration Foundation invited Ms. Margret and Ms Jessica’s class to help raise awareness for two types of coral: Staghorn Coral and Elkhorn Coral.
