Lake Hills Montessori
My husband and I are both career driven, professionals with in the community and want the same for our three children! As parents we new there had to be an alternative to daycare, but we didn’t know what was out there. We looked at several private, reputable even elite schools…they all left us feeling as if we would be OUR privilege if our children were accepted at their school. It was not until talking to a friend in CA I learned of a method called Montessori. To place your child with the skill set taught in a true Montessori environment (careful, cause several SAY they are and have no recognized certification)is to give them a “head start” in the game of life! A Montessori child will enter into the first grade feeling capable, independent and confident of their ability. Because this method of learning encompasses the WHOLE child, the teachers will teach the children to not only how to read/write/add/subtract/multiply/divide/geography/science/geography/botany…etc, but will also teach them to follow their moral compass, social graces/manners, care of the environment and conflict/resolution with friends! These little first graders will stand out because they are not motivated by anything (rewards/punishment or adult approval) other than the satisfaction of doing the right thing, the right way with maximum effort! Unfortunately we found Lake Hills Montessori one child too late. WOW what a difference we can see in the two that are getting LHM as a foundation! This is our last year to be apart of this school and I can tell you as a working mom, there are a lot of things to feel guilty about and this is NOT one of them! Best decision we made!
