Our Approach

The Montessori philosophy is among the fastest growing and most respected method of education. It was developed in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, she was the first female physician in Italy and a renowned educator. Dr. Maria Montessori made great strides in the field of education and the development of children, her philosophy and methods continue to be effective in the way children learning until this very day.

Development Cycles: Dr. Montessori discovered that children's learning characteristics occur in Developmental cycles of three years. For this reason, Montessori classrooms typically encompass a three year age span. In this learning environment, younger children benefit from the mentoring of older children and the older children enhance their opportunities by serving as peer tutors and role models for their young peers.

A Dual  Curriculum:  The Montessori  program for each succeeding cycle encompasses a Dual Curriculum. The primary curriculum is developmental in nature and is accompanied by a collateral academic curriculum. Because teachers learn to understand each student's learning style, this dual curriculum design, provides teachers with powerful daily criterion-referenced and student performance-based, assessment opportunities. This also makes it possible for the teacher to adjust their instructional strategies and presentation practice for each child, on the basis of the results from these daily assessment procedures, which are based upon their careful observation of each student the curriculum at all levels is multi-sensory and multi-cultural.

Welcome

I would like to thank you for visiting our website. This is an opportunity to get to know my passion for children. I have over 20 years of experience working with children of all ages. I am also a mother of two children. My husband and I believe in putting God first, also in raising our children to be independent thinkers, integrity keepers, and kind human-beings. My passion for teaching children began in my teens years as a high school internship program. Then in 1994, I attended Norfolk State University, for early childhood development. In 2002, my sister-in-law and I had a vision, a desire to do more in our community in a little basement in Brooklyn, so we created San-Dee's Day Care " A Home Away From Home" Where Learning is fun! Because of our integrity, creativity, love for teaching, and our commitment to our children, parents, and community we grew to have three promising Day Care Centers, two in Brooklyn and one in Queens. For 13 plus years we provided, taught and guided our children to be the best they could be.

In early 2013 we had to close San-Dee's Day Care in Brooklyn & Queens, NY when my family moved to Atlanta, GA but we vowed that we would return to what we loved which was the children and giving them a place to feel safe, explore, learn and play. In September 2013, I relocated my childcare program to Marietta, GA and in 2014, I attended a class at Kennesaw State University where I was introduced to the Montessori method. I can honestly say without a doubt that this was the most profound experience of my career. In 2015, my husband and I opened up a Montessori School in Marietta, Georgia. Our Montessori Learning Center's, give us an opportunity to build a foundation for your child’s skills, knowledge and to create a promising future for your family. I am excited to spend time showing you how our Montessori School's exemplify the way we work to ensure every child has an equal opportunity to succeed. Let us come together as partners to help our children reach their fullest potential!
