At Sunflower Montessori and Day Care, we are committed to observing and supporting the natural development of children, as well as treat each child as a unique individual. We use Montessori educational practice to help children develop creativity, problem solving skills, critical thinking, time management skills, care of the environment and each other, and to prepare them to contribute to society and to become fulfilled persons.
Sunflower Montessori and Day Care uses lessons and materials introduced by Dr. Maria Montessori, tailored to the basic characteristics of children at different ages and to the individual personalities of each child. The function of the environment is to allow the child to develop independence in all areas according to his or her inner psychological directives.
Our programs are developed to follow two basic models of human development. The two principles of this models are: first, children engage in psychological self-construction by means of interaction with their environments. Second is children especially under the age of six, will use their innate path of psychological development. Based on these models the children are guided by the teachers will be at liberty to choose freely within the environment prepared and would act spontaneously for optimal development.
