What is the difference between a preschool and a daycare?
A preschool is a facility that offers child enrichment programs for children of all ages. Programs are organized around a specific educational theory. Parents can drop off their kids for specific hours for the day or can choose to leave their children there throughout the work day.
A daycare center accept infants as young as 6-8 weeks old as well as children up to usually 10 years old but tend not offer enrichment programs that can help your child’s growth and development.
What is a Montessori School?
“Education is a natural process carried by our human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
Maria Montessori discovered and revealed to the world qualities in children different from and higher than those we usually attribute to them. By giving freedom to children in a specially prepared environment, rich in activity, she was able to show an astonished world that children from 3 to 6 years learned to read write spontaneously. We also believe that children are ripe for learning at this early age. Not only are they ready learners, but they are more eager than the older children.
Green Children’s House is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization that combines Montessori learning and care to provide the best environment for your children.
Our curriculum includes the best of research based early childhood education that includes a creative activity based learning environment for your child. We believe that though an educational curriculum is important to a child’s growth and development, so is physical, social and emotional development. As a result, your children are provided a social and emotional curriculum and given supervised free play within our playground so that they can jump, run, bike, climb and socialize with their new friends.
Green Children’s House believes in building a healthy IQ as well as an EQ. We believe it is our mission that the whole body, mind and spirit, are cultivated within the GCH facility.
