The Manor Montessori School

About Our School Founded in 1962, The Manor Montessori School was the first Montessori school established in the State of Maryland. It is also one of... the few Montessori schools to have constructed its own facility, in Potomac, which was specifically designed for children working in a Montessori environment. The Manor Montessori School provides a warm and nurturing atmosphere for children between the ages of two and nine. Campuses Our main campus, located in Potomac (off of Falls Road), offers classes at the Toddler (age 2) level, the Primary (ages 3-6) level and the Elementary (ages 6-9) level. Our second campus, located in Rockville (near Tuckerman Lane), offers classes at the Toddler (age 2) level and the Primary (ages 3-6) level. Our third campus, located in Bethesda, offers classes at the Toddler (age 2) level and the Primary (ages 3-6) level. ​Programs The Twos program is for the two year old child who need not be potty trained. It is available five days per week from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon or 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at all three locations. It is a loving and nurturing environment, as it is the child's first school experience. The Primary program is for those children who are three years old by September and potty-trained. At the Primary level we offer a half-day program from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or a full-day program from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., five days per week.

If a 3 year old child does not nap, after a short rest period, the staff member will allow the child to join her at a table to look at books, draw, paint, or do puzzles. The four year old children who no longer need a nap are placed in the enrichment program where Montessori materials are offered along with art, science, music, cooking, and story reading.

We also offer free play indoors or outdoors until the children are picked up. We ask that parents arrive by 5:45 p.m. to assure that pick up will be on time. A late charge will be applied for any child picked up after 6:00 p.m.

Montessori School of Chevy Chase

The Montessori School of Chevy Chase was founded in 1999 and serves approximately 60 children from many diverse cultures and backgrounds each year.... Our school enjoys a reputation for academic excellence and active parent involvement. Our founder/director of the school, Marlene Cherry, holds an AMI Primary Montessori Diploma, a Masters Degree in Montessori Education and a BS in Education. All teachers are Montessori certified and take ongoing classes to further their education. The Montessori School of Chevy Chase is a member of the International Montessori Council and the American Montessori Society. Overview Montessori is an educational approach focusing on independence, respect for a child’s natural development, and freedom (within limits). It is founded on the premise that while children develop in different ways and at different rates, they do so in a defined sequence. The Montessori approach holds that young children have a natural drive to understand the world around them and they can best learn through self-teaching in carefully prepared environments, under the guidance of a caring teacher. Montessori Teachers Montessori teachers help individual children find challenges appropriate for their skill level. While traditional teachers tend to act as leaders and organizers, Montessori teachers serve more as a guides and facilitators. It is their job to provide positive reinforcement and steer children towards challenging activities while respecting their freedom of choice. Montessori Classrooms Classrooms in Montessori schools are specially designed to spark curiosity, minimize unnecessary failure and promote feelings of joy when achievement occurs. Children start by focusing on concrete and manipulative tasks then shift to more abstract tasks as knowledge and proficiency increase. In a Montessori classroom, the goal is to stimulate the desire for self exploration and understanding. Our Program Child The Montessori School of Chevy Chase provides quality learning and growth opportunities for children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years old. All of our programs fully embrace the Montessori method of teaching which includes an emphasis on self-directed learning, mixed age group classrooms and building independence & confidence.

Spring Bilingual Montessori Academy

Spring Bilingual Montessori Academy (SBMA) seeks to create a learning environment in which the student is encouraged to explore his own innate sense... of curiosity and eagerness to gain knowledge. Our program is carefully designed to meet the individual needs of each child. The difference between the SBMA environment and that of other Montessori institutions lies in the parallel instruction of foreign language to all facets of the learning process. It has been shown in countless educational research studies that the child is most sensitive and receptive to a second language during the period from birth to age six. During these crucial developmental years the child tends to learn most effectively not through conventional teaching means, but by absorbing information through activity within the environment to which he is exposed. This is a natural process, embraced by the child with a tremendous amount of enthusiasm. The goal of the teacher in this process is to prepare a structured environment in which the child has access to information and activities which promote positive learning. At SBMA, learning the language of another culture is as natural as are the stimuli used to write, to count, to associate names with places and animals, and to develop sensory awareness and practical life skills. The advantages of this added understanding go beyond the simple acquisition of a second vocabulary. SBMA believes that to know something of the spoken and written language of another group of people is akin to being acquainted with them. Language enables us to penetrate into another culture’s philosophy, folklore, literature and music. Through this understanding, we can begin to bridge the unnatural barriers separating the world today. We wish to give our children the inspiration to create a better world tomorrow
