The role of the Montessori Guide is to observe each child individually, and present lessons they will soon be able to master. Our educators promote learning, and it ensures that the student grasps a deeper understanding of the activities the child has selected.
The Lead Educator controls the classroom environment. The child’s work is honored and respected, and the Lead Educator through extensive observation and record keeping, formulates a plan of action to introduce new materials and lessons for each student individually. Assessments are not based on numerical grades, tests, nor homework. They are established by ongoing observation, mastering concepts, and completion of work.
To be a Dual-Language Immersion Program, each classroom is composed of one native Spanish speaking Assistant and an English Lead Guide.
“…the teacher’s task is first to nourish and assist, to watch, encourage, guide, induce, rather than to interfere, prescribe, or restrict.” -Maria Montessori
