The child is at the heart of everything we do. At FMS, they are in a positive, nurturing, and happy environment where every child is unique and every child matters.The child has the freedom 'to be' and has every opportunity to fulfill his or her potential at his or her own pace. The staff is committed, dedicated, and loving whilst being positive role models for the children in their care. The children thrive, blossom, and enjoy work and play.
At FMS, your child will thrive with our Montessori certified and experienced teaching staff providing an excellent educational start for your child. We offer a safe, comfortable and stimulating educational environment. Our traditional Montessori approach is the best preparation for elementary school. We also specialize in arts and crafts and teach Spanish as a second language.
Serving our community, FMS is a Montessori preschool that enriches children through not only using Montessori methods in the classroom, but also in the personal interactions that occur every day. The children are nurtured with kindness and respect which in turn, creates an environment where they are able to thrive and grow. We encourage parents’ involvement and cooperation. With proper involvement, the school and the home can be extensions of one another.
Our program is tailored to meet the needs of each student. We are constantly evolving and changing our activities to encourage independence in each child. Our objectives are to help the child develop autonomy as a learner, to have comfortable and productive peer relations, to learn those basic skills and concepts necessary for intellectual development, to be aware of and to organize his environment in terms of himself, to establish for the child effective learning strategies, and to kindle an excitement for learning.
We at FMS believe that we grow, change, and learn along with the children. Teaching is not a nine to five job, rather it is a full-time vocation. Being sensitive to the needs of each child, preparing materials based on the understanding of those needs, knowing the materials and activities available, and approaching each child with love and understanding are the basic principals that every teacher at FMS strongly believes in and practices. Our school is a community of mind and spirit. Our curriculum follows the traditional five components of Montessori preschool learning (Practical life, Sensorial exercises, Language, Mathematics, and Cultural study). We suit our program to individual needs of our students and parents.
We provide individual attention but allow freedom for your child’s development; we teach your child to direct their education; we create an environment for the purposeful exploration of your child’s confident future and we do all this while still being the most affordable Montessori preschool in the area.
We offer several different programs to cater to the needs of work demands that mothers and fathers must balance. Our center hours are 7:00am to 6:00pm M-F and our flexible programs are tailored for your 18 months to 6 year old child.
