Kids USA Montessori in Plano has a very exciting and rewarding program for children aged 3 to 6 years. Primary Montessori School encourages children to decide what they want to learn and the teachers observe them to see what each child? interests are. Then the teachers put each child in situations in which they can learn best that which they enjoy.
Children are naturally different and they learn at different paces so the teachers allow each one enough time to learn each stage. There is no ?hurry, hurry, we must finish the syllabus.? As a result, each child is happy and excited to learn new things without fear. All the children emerge from this program creative, caring and confident.
