We will employ these values to strengthen and grow our classroom community. Eventually, the children will be able to run the class independently. As Maria Montessori said, “The greatest sign of success of a teacher is to be able to say the children are now working as if I didn’t exist.”
As always, at Ryozan Park Preschool we celebrate diversity and inclusion in everything we do. It is never too early to educate for empowerment. Graduates of our Montessori kindergarten show self-direction, independence, and a sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers, and their environment: all qualities that prepare them for the next stage of education, whether it be Japanese elementary or international school.
