What People Say About Us
Meet Our Director
As the director of Quality Interactive Montessori School, it is my joy to provide education to children in our community, from toddlers all the way up to 8th grade. My educational background is in early childhood, special education, and Montessori credentials for primary ages 3-5. I graduated from GCU with a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Health Studies with an additional emphasis on childhood disorders and trauma and I am excited to continue my journey at GCU working towards a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. My passion for education continues to grow each year I work in the field. The most exciting part of education for me is watching the continuous brain development throughout the students’ various stages of development. The Montessori curriculum has always been a part of my teaching style as it allows for each child to grow and learn at their own pace to be able to flourish in their academic success.
“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to but by experiences in the environment”. – Dr. Maria Montessori
Choosing a Montessori environment for your child has many benefits. Known for individually paced learning and fostering independence, the Montessori Method also encourages empathy, a passion for social justice, and a joy in lifelong learning. Given the freedom and support to question, probe deeply, and make connections, Montessori students grow up to be confident, enthusiastic, and self-directed learners and citizens, accountable to both themselves and their community. They think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly and with integrity. Learn more about our programs below:
Infants and Toddlers: (Ages 6 weeks- 3 years)
Montessori Infant & Toddler programs lay the foundation for lifelong learning by nurturing your child’s curiosity, self-confidence, and intrinsic desire to learn from birth. A Montessori environment offers so much more than childcare for the youngest learners.
Montessori Infant & Toddler programs offer a curriculum that emerges from each child’s unique skills and interests. Based on daily observations, teachers introduce new materials and activities that pique curiosity and stimulate learning. Learning objectives for your child at this age include developing skills such as language, concentration, problem solving, visual discrimination, and physical coordination.
Preschool (early childhood) ages 3-6
Montessori education is student-led and self-paced but guided, assessed, and enriched by knowledgeable and caring teachers, the leadership of their peers, and a nurturing environment.
Within the community of a multi-age classroom—designed to create natural opportunities for independence, citizenship, and accountability—children embrace multi-sensory learning and passionate inquiry. Individual students follow their own curiosity at their own pace, taking the time they need to fully understand each concept and meet individualized learning goals.
Kindergarteners are introduced to progressively more advanced Montessori materials and sophisticated, fascinating lessons. They experience an important period in which their previous learning from working with concrete Montessori materials begins to become permanent knowledge. A Montessori Kindergarten student sees and feels their personal growth as they watch others learn information, they have mastered themselves.
Kindergarten is the culmination of the Early Childhood program. Children exhibit the independence, critical thinking, collaboration, and leadership that they have been practicing during their previous years in the Early Childhood classroom, exercising them independently at their own pace, as they prepare to transition into an Elementary program.
