Exploring Minds Montessori Pre-School
Exploring Minds Montessori preschool provides a developmentally based learning environment based on the Montessori principals that guide and nurture the harmonious unfolding of the whole individual. We offer a mixed-age program for children from 2.6 to 6 years old. Our philosophy is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator. She developed a program designed to foster the distinct growth of self-disciplined and confident individuals who are capable of making significant contributions to society by fulfilling their highest potential. All of the classroom materials aid in building a strong learning foundation, they help children build sensory and motor skills, lengthen concentration span, develop problem solving techniques, teach children to care for themselves and to work with others, to name a few. Our specially trained Montessori teachers prepare a carefully arranged environment scaled physically and conceptually to meet the child's developmental staples. In the Prepared Environment, children may choose activities according to their diverse needs and desires. The teachers' role in the classroom is to guide children by introducing them to new materials and activities as they gain greater levels of mastery. Cooperative projects help children bring together individual talents to accomplish common goals. Our school's program also incorporates a vast enrichment curriculum that includes the studies of languages, art, music, drama and movement. The Montessori method may be new for some of you, so if you should have any questions, we hope you will freely ask them.

Located in Tarzana CA, Montessori on the Blvd. serves the communities... of Tarzana, Encino, Woodland Hills, Sherman Oaks, Studio City and the greater San Fernando Valley. We offer a safe, beautiful campus for your child to learn and thrive. Our curriculum emphasizes an all-encompassing, comprehensive approach to learning through all five senses.

Our Montessori school offers the tools, backed by the professional expertise, to instill confidence and education into your child's academic life. The end result is an environment comprised of creativity to flourish and succeed later in life. As a traditional Montessori school we are not just a daycare facility, instead, we are the West San Fernando Valley's premier preschool, kindergarten and infant daycare. Our educational approach was developed by Italian physician and educator, Dr. Maria Montessori in the 1900's. Serving children from birth to 18 years old, Montessori education is practiced in approximately 20,000 schools throughout the world. At Montessori on the Blvd., we offer classrooms for children 6 weeks to 6 years of age. Characterized by an emphasis on respect for a child's natural psychological development, the Montessori type of education supplies a child the freedom of expression and independence. A day at our Tarzana Montessori school includes a student's choice of activities, from a range of options, uninterrupted blocks of work time, and specialized educational materials developed by Dr. Montessori and her collaborators.

Montessori Shir-Hashirim - Berendo

When I first opened our preschool in Hollywood in 1985, the name... Shir-Hashirim seemed to be just right. Shir-Hashirim translates literally as “Song of Songs,” but the biblical meaning may be closer to “Song of Creation.” Although our name is Hebrew, we honor many traditions and we welcome students and employ faculty and staff without regard to race, color, religion or national origin. When you enter our “house for children” — the phrase and concept are original with Maria Montessori — you may be struck by several features of our everyday educational experience. The first impression may be of the silence of the children’s involvement. Our students are between two and six years of age, and many parents, seeing bunches of such young children, expect to witness significant levels of noise, if not outright chaos. A primary commitment of the Montessori method is not rigid discipline but trust that if children are presented with materials finely tuned to their emerging capacities, they will become naturally absorbed in exploring simultaneously, and through an exquisitely quiet interaction, the possibilities of both the materials and themselves. A Montessori Education is renowned for following the child by respecting his or her individual pace of development, not simply as a philosophical tenet but in the very practical terms of constantly assessing when the child is ready for which new challenge. It is the sustained experience of personal involvement in frequently changing tasks that underlies the development of the independence we see in the classroom, and that many parents report seeing in their homes and as they accompany their children out in the wider world. The second surprise may come from noting how the children help and learn from each other. Teachers present new materials and supervise their use, but the children frequently help each other. Our classrooms mix ages that are separated in many educational settings, and this mixing leads naturally to older or more experienced children helping novices in given tasks. The young child naturally looks to the older with respect and for guidance, and the older or more experienced child often learns most profoundly from teaching, an experience we share with them. You may also be surprised to see the range of activities inside and outside of the school. In our classrooms every day, students practice activities in mathematics, language, science, history, geography, reading and writing. Our programs change as our staff, family backgrounds and student interests change, but to give an indication, as of this writing we offer art, music, dance, drama, and yoga, as well as instruction in French, Mandarin and Spanish. The children, as beginners, will often show the roughness of primitives, but also, if you observe closely, you will see that they display the positive aspects of the primitive in the sense of simplicity and profundity in the experience of discovery. The motivation of our staff is continually refreshed by observing these features — the children’s solo involvements, the mutual benefits of altruistic relations with each other, and their immediate grasp of aspects of arts and sciences that we realize we had always failed to appreciate. In addition, in our twenty years of experience, we have enjoyed enormously the constantly evolving international community that has evolved around us in Los Angeles, and that surprises us every year by offering us new possibilities, for example a grandfather visiting from Singapore who plays guitar as he sings in Chinese, delighting the children who can make out words they have learned from their Chinese teacher; or a mother’s introduction of Hindu food and dances at her child’s birthday party; or the “industry” parents who may rush back from a movie set or a Las Vegas show to help us design state-of-the-art sound systems, create a tapestry-like stage background, or edit the recordings of multiple cameras into a DVD of one of our plays. We delight in the reality that each person — child, parent, and staff — brings something unique and valuable to our community. We invite you to visit our school and spend some time in our classrooms. Watch how the children interact with one another, and with the adult teachers (in Montessori we call them guides). See how responsibility and independence are fostered, and how the child-appropriate environment makes it possible for children to discover their abilities. Please join us for a tour and see why children love being here.
