Montessori Kids Universe offers a franchise child care opportunity with a variety of learning experiences utilizing the Montessori curriculum. A Montessori Kids Universe school offers year-round; rolling admissions, with half and full-day options. The primary goal of the Montessori program is to help each child reach his/her full potential in all areas of life. The environment is carefully prepared; with specific materials. The goal is to prepare children to become life-long learners and to promote the development of social courtesies, emotional growth, physical coordination, as well as cognitive preparation for future academic endeavors.
The holistic curriculum, under the direction of a Montessori trained teacher, allows the child to experience the joy of learning, time to enjoy the process; organically developing self-esteem.
The first task a child learns when he / she comes to the Montessori classroom is the concept of order. The children learn that materials belong on the shelf at a specific place and after use; they are replaced. The teacher demonstrates this acting as the guide. When a child selects a task, he/she repeats the activity until he/she has mastered the task.
The classrooms offer a prepared environment that includes distinct areas where children learn concentration, order, sequence, and practical life skills.
The Practical Life area includes materials necessary for preparing and serving a snack, setting and clearing the table, sweeping, caring for plants and animals, dish washing, clothes washing, polishing, hand washing, window cleaning, and so on. These activities create a repetitive cycle, which helps the child establish patterns of order and sequencing; with the child experiencing the intrinsic joy of success and mastery.
The Sensorial Area allows children to use their senses to learn about the world. A child can learn to distinguish different heights, lengths, and weights, colors, sounds, smells, and textures.
Language activities and materials increase vocabulary and conversational skills, develop writing and reading skills; as children begin to grasp an understanding of grammar.
The Math, Geography, and Science areas provide the child with ideas for their intellectual development. Hands on experience with math materials give children clear, concrete impressions on which to build their own abstractions.
Social Grace and Courtesy is a very important part of our Montessori Kids Universe program. Children learn to respect each other, their teachers, parents, materials and the earth. Children who have conflicts are taught the concept of "peaceful resolution of conflict"; offering each other a "Peace Rose" upon resolution.
The classroom offers space for movement and individual work; as well as space for group activities. Children are given opportunities and freedom to choose work in the development of language, math, geography, music, sensorial, and practical life. A number of multi-sensory, sequential, and self-correcting Montessori materials facilitate learning.
The tasks are designed so that each new step is building upon what the child has already mastered, thus removing the negative experience of frequent failure. A carefully planned series of successes builds upon inner confidence, assuring the child that he can learn by himself. Since these are very real activities, each child becomes grounded in reality. Building the child's self-esteem is the ultimate goal and this is accomplished through repeated successes. These confidence-building activities likewise contribute to the child's healthy emotional development.
Through song and dance, and freedom of choice, the child has access to a variety of large muscle activities that offer opportunities to jump, climb, balance, crawl or skip. Children are allowed to make choices within the prepared environment in a safe space.
In addition to the Montessori curriculum, children participate in daily/weekly sessions of Yoga, Music, Baking, Art, Gardening. A foreign language is taught at each location. The Head of School will make the decision as to what language will be taught at his/her location but typically chooses Spanish, French or Mandarin.
A unique hybrid; the MKU model offers a relatively low investment for entry; compared to other franchise models in the child care sector. Based on the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori over 100 years ago; this philosophy places an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits and respect for a child's natural development.
If you feel the intrinsic desire to be a part of engaging in a child's growth and development, offering a unique and holistic curriculum, then a Montessori Kids Universe franchise opportunity may be the perfect fit. You will enter a world where memories are made on a daily basis, impacting the lives of the children and families you serve.
