Ms Juana's Montessori (MJM) has a fully equipped Montessori classroom and serves children ages three to six years old (toddlers, pre-school, kindergarten). The Montessori approach combines the above mentioned age group so the children can absorb by observing other children. The children spend each day taking individual lessons, working individually or in small groups. MJM has developed a rich bilingual Montessori curriculum that includes Daily Living/practical life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, Arts and Crafts, Cultural Studies, Geography and Science. We read, sing, work and play outside everyday. There is a great outdoor environment where we take nature walks and explore the wildlife.
Like Maria Montessori, MJM opened their doors in the home of the teacher/administrator, and can accommodate twelve children. MJM is licensed as a Family Day Home provider by the Virginia Department of Social Services. As required, a teacher's assistant supports the teacher and children in their work each day.
