The Focus of Following the Child
Our preschool classrooms are prepared keeping in mind the individual needs of each child. Every child is different, so their access to educational materials should reflect that. At Nature Story, we use the Montessori approach of "following the child." This means we work with each student on their academic ability and needs which are paralleled with their social and emotional development. This Montessori approach prepares them to enter the public school setting with knowledge and confidence. Our program also integrates the natural world around them, their connection, and their own powerful influence within their environment. Moving at their own pace and focusing on their personal talents and skills increase their confidence in themselves and abilities, which is fundamental in the success of their future.
