This program will utilize Montessori Methods that encourage children to learn through play in a mixed aged group of children 2 1/2 to 5 years. Moozie's Play Group is the first step in a goal that we hope will ultimately evolve into a fully certified Montessori School Program.
In our program your child will learn how to "help themselves". Self-care skills will be an integral part of our daily curriculum encouraging children to develop self-confidence. Rich and orderly environments (also known as a prepared environment) tailored to this age group will teach respect for all people and things which results in better self control and enhanced social skills. Children will learn in a mixed aged classroom that provides them with the freedom to seek out their own interests and encourages them to learn at their own pace with very little prompting. In this type of learning environment children can develop important social skills and discover what interests them.
We are very excited about this program for many reasons. We hope you are too. If you have any questions regarding our Play Group Program, please do not hesitate to contact us at Aimee@mooziesplaycafe.com.
For those of you that may be unfamiliar with the Montessori methods of teaching , the video below demonstrates a day in the life. Some of the activities shown in the video will be part of our program and your child's day.
