“We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child’s spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active…That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life” ~ Dr. Maria Montessori

Parents who send their child to preschool agree that it’s an experience that is both difficult and emotional. Choosing which preschool to send them to can be quite a challenging and difficult process. When you are making this vital choice, make sure you remember to consider Montessori schools. A Montessori school, such as Small World Montessori is a private preschool which fosters independence and real world skills which will help your child to grow and evolve.
You might think that Montessori schools in Bogota NJ are merely a trend. As a matter of fact, these preschools are not merely trends. Districts and schools spend thousands of dollars on new math and reading applications only to find two years later, there is something better out there. This is a result of the fact that they will frequently jump from one trend to another. This results in a confusing and unstable environment for a kid to grow and learn within. Montessori schools don’t flip-flop between programs because they don’t need to. Montessori education proves to be effective regardless of what country it’s taught in or the student’s socio economic status. Children today still benefit from the philosophy that Maria Montessori developed many years ago. Montessori private schools use tools and knowledge which have been around for centuries, but they’ve been around for such a long time as a result of the fact that they work.
If you’re trying to make the best option for your child and looking into a Montessori school in Bogota NJ you might be curious like a lot of parents what it’s all about. In the event you have not heard of this type of school you may be surprised to discover that that it dates back to 1907. It was started by Italian educator and philosopher, in addition to being a humanitarian and physician, Dr. Maria Montessori. As part of her method, self-directed learning was recognized as a vital factor to concentrate on. Physical activity is vital for the child’s education as a whole, not only for exercise, which is another factor she was careful to stress. When properly used throughout the course of their day of learning physical activity can make it easier for children to learn abstract concepts. Another advantage of this approach is that they’re able to learn more practical skills. An integral factor in regards to Montessori education is environment. The idea is that the child should not be forced to adapt to an environment which is less than ideal for their education, but instead teachers should work hard to provide an environment that is going to suit the child’s learning and development. This method of education spread throughout many areas of the world as Dr. Montessori traveled and instructed others on how to best instruct children, and now it’s more popular than ever. Are you interested in a private school in Bogota NJ and wish to ensure the absolute best for your child? Be sure to learn more by giving us a call at Small World Montessori today.
We’re a top choice when you require a Montessori preschool in Bogota NJ because we strive to meet your child’s requirements. Children need the proper stimulation if they are to really learn and reach their full potential. Conventional academic learning has its place. However, it’s not what this type of education focuses on. By getting to the heart of the matter as your child is developing, the abilities and motivation that will lead to academic learning as well as a love for learning in general will instead be addressed in a wide variety of ways. Making sure the child is totally engaged in their learning experience when they’re younger yields excellent rewards later in life as they become better learners. They will be driven to learn not out of desire to please the teacher or complete tasks, but for the joy and pleasure of learning itself when the teacher ensures the child’s stimulation in this way. This will serve them all throughout their life in many areas. It is essential that the child’s environment be conducive to this experience and is a strong focus of any Montessori school, especially Small World Montessori. This is the reason finding teachers that are experienced and familiar with the Montessori technique is important, and this is the reason you can depend on us at Small World. Not only does our director have over 25 years of experience, but she also received training at a school focused on the Montessori approach. Small World Montessori has been serving the educational requirements of young children since 1987. We have been a top choice of parents searching for a top Montessori preschool in Bogota NJ.
As a top choice for a private preschool in Bogota NJ, fostering independence is a top priority. Everything regarding a Montessori classroom fosters independence in your kids, substantially more than a regular public preschool. The classroom that is prepared to allow the child to do for themselves what an adult would usually do for a child. Motivations for learning in this case don’t need to be dictated by a teacher but rather they can be found for themselves. Rather than the stepwise directions of the teacher, considerably better outcomes occur when their own motivation for understanding is discovered. The pride you see in these children who are capable of ‘doing it themselves without asking for help from an adult is incredible. A Montessori preschool classroom in supplies a prepared environment where children are capable of developing independence. Among the advantages of Montessori preschools is that materials are designed to be self correcting. Children are taught to not always need an adult to point out errors in their thinking, but figure it out for themselves. Students in Montessori preschools then have the power to request help when they need it, instead of an adult telling the child when they require help. These students begin to realize that they have the intelligence and ability to do things on their own. An incredible boost in confidence is given to your child as a result and they’re capable of feeling more empowered. You will see that conventional public schools systems only can’t supply your child with the education we can.

Mrs. Robins is an outstanding teacher. She has created a structured yet nurturing environment in which young minds can thrive mentally and emotionally. All four of our children graduated from Small World Montessori and we couldn't be happier with the experience. (children attended between 1988 and 2005)
This school is a very serious place. Your child will be learning how to learn in peaceful, ordered and organized environment. But, it is much more than that. When you visit your child, you will start to feel the school's serenity come over you, and you know this is a rare find in today's turbulent world. That serenity will slowly but surely fill your child's heart. But wait, there's more to it. After a year or two you will realize this place is an extended family.
You will find that teachers and the principal deeply care about your child, as if it were their own child, niece or grandchild. You will know they actually understand your traffic jam, business difficulty, whatever. You will start to feel blessed with your luck to have found it. And, after your child leaves, it will be clear that they had the best possible start. Our two daughters sure did. Thank you Small World!!!
We are extremely pleased with the staff and with the quality of instruction that our daughter has received at Small World Montessori School (SWM) since September 2009.
My husband and I researched many preschools before selecting SWM and have been very satisfied with our decision. As a clinical early childhood social worker, I've worked with the preschool population for the past 10 years and have toured many of the Manhattan preschools with clients looking for quality preschools. This experience assisted my selection process in that I was able to determine how dedicated and knowledgeable the director and the teachers are at SWM.
The teachers at Small World Montessori are warm, caring, devoted, and most importantly very well informed about child development. They comprehend the uniqueness of each child and are very in tuned with the needs of all the children. Our daughter is provided with individual attention when required, but ultimately encouraged to become independent and confident in achieving everyday skills. Since the beginning, our daughter's teacher has been in constant communication with us about progress, concerns, and feedback on how to respond to certain situations.
My daughter is happy, socializes well with her peers, is acquiring pre-academic skills, and is much more confident since she started attending the school. She is learning at an amazing pace and comes home eager to show off what she is learning.
The facility is extremely well kept, clean, and organized which makes it very easy for the children to navigate through the materials and feel organized themselves. We are very grateful and feel very relaxed knowing that our little girl is in very good hands.
We strongly recommend this school to parents who understand that learning is a natural phenomenon that happens when children are provided with the right structure, nurture, oversight and encouragement.
Ms. Robins! Thank you for everything. You are doing such a great job and we are so happy that we found Small World last summer! I cannot express how grateful we are for everything that you do! You are one of the best teachers that I've seen in my life and I am proud to have you as Sophia's first teacher.
The performance today was amazing and it truly was one of the best things that we've seen :-)
Going to Ms. Robins' Montessori pre-school gave me an edge on school. I was enrolled there until Kindergarten, then I attended the local public schools thereafter. I could read before my other classmates and conceptualize certain mathematic models more easily. But most of all, I was well behaved - something that my teachers greatly appreciated. I excelled all throughout school with great study habits and accomplished my goals I set out to do. I ended up second in my graduating class and I am now attending the University of Pennsylvania.
If I could do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing. Not only did I develop a great basis for understanding how to grasp difficult concepts, but I also learned how to socialize properly too. If you ask me what I got out of my Montessori education: it primed me with an exceptional foundation that affects who I am today.
Oh yeah, and I also found my best friend of 17 years.
Small World was where I had my last tantrum. It's where I learned to function as an only-child and where I evolved into an adolescent and then an adult. Up until that afternoon of my last tantrum, the world was mine. I was a three year old creative spirit run wild.
But on that autumn day, my world changed. Suddenly everything was not about what I wanted when I wanted it. There were other people like my mom and dad who wanted things too. Even my friends wanted things. I may not have wanted to leave school and my friends that particular afternoon but there was limited time to run errands and do grocery shopping.
Ms. Robbins made it clear to me and my mother that my mother's needs should come first. For the first time it was evident that it wasn't all about me and my tyrannical post toddler dictations. There was an entire world functioning separate from myself and it was high time I joined it. 'Be Sensible. Concentrate' were The Small World mantras. To this day I am reminded of those commanding sentences and every day I still apply them to my life.

We are the families of Small World Montessori School’s Class of 2016. Among us, we have 18 Small World students, 7 alumni, 9 in the graduating class, 2 still attending. Why do we send all our children to Small World? Because the school is phenomenal. The teachers are all very experienced and devoted to our children. Open communications with parents are always emphasized and do not stop even if the child has graduated. We have all witnessed the differences in our children as the results from working with the staff.
One parent was once a Small World student herself. “The whole basis of my education lies with her (Mrs. Robins) and the things I learned at this school. Montessori children are not like the rest, we think outside the box, we are problem solvers, we have empathy and we love to learn.” We all agree. And even though academic skills are never emphasized, somehow the children excel academically. Most of them are at first grade level by the end of kindergarten.
The world is a complicated place and our children are at a crossroads. We know under the loving care of Small World, our children developed core values and character that will help them succeed as they venture out into the Big World. What’s more, we take comfort in knowing that our children can always come back to Small World. The school will always be a place that they can call home, a place that they can feel safe. Just ask our older kids.
We are proud, and truly feel blessed that our children belong to the Small World Montessori School’s family.
