We are committed to providing children with a warm, nurturing, and creative environment that they can thrive in as whole beings. Children are naturally creative and find a deep connection with their imagination when they are given open-ended materials to explore. Our objective as a preschool is to encourage their exploration by incorporating the Montessori, Reggio-Emilia, and Waldorf learning approaches into our program.
Children will also have the opportunity to learn about practical life skills, fine arts, foreign language, yoga/meditation and nature. It is also our goal to guide children in their most critical years of their lives by nurturing their social-emotional development skills with developmentally appropriate activities and experiences.
"A Compassionate Learning Experience"
The first few years of a child’s life are believed to be the most magical. Research shows that in the first few years of life, “more than 1 million new neural connections are formed every second”. (Harvard, 2007). At Little Lotus Preschool, our philosophy and approach promotes a lifelong desire for harmony in all areas of learning. We believe children are able to thrive the most when they are given the freedom to explore their hobbies and interests through open-ended play. That is why our program was developed for children’s eagerness to learn with their social-emotional development in mind and in heart.
Our preschool values are founded on diversity, respect, and compassion for each other which is why we believe we can make a deep impact in our global community by changing the world through education.
“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.”
- Maria Montessori
