Why Choose Blooming Tulips Montessori?
Teaching Methods Based On Proven Research
Contemporary scientific research has shown that the first six years of a child’s life is of paramount importance. More than 60% of your child’s mental development takes place before they are six years old. Your child’s brain is literally wiring itself and determining how information will flow through the brain’s structures and get processed. This early wiring forms the brain’s basic organizing template and is highly resistant to change. Your child’s cognitive abilities and personality will be largely shaped by the environmental influences they are exposed to on a consistent basis at this young age.
Engages Young Minds
Bloom! Montessori® understands that the first six years of a child’s life are a profoundly formative time; we give these years the respect and recognition they deserve. The Montessori method nurtures your child’s independence, stimulates her intellect, cultivates her love of learning, and protects her natural inquisitiveness and curiosity.
Bloom! Montessori® provides an optimal environment for your young child. Our home-like environment and small, close-knit community provide a relaxed learning environment and a convivial, familiar atmosphere. Larger schools and child care centers generally have more employees, frequent staff scheduling changes, and regular staff turnover which is not developmentally appropriate for young children who are forced to continually attach and re-attach to new caretakers. At Bloom, our children remain with the same Montessori guide for three-year cycles to promote consistency, bonding, and trust. Additionally, our student-teacher ratio never exceeds 1:6, ensuring your child gets the individual attention she needs.
To meet the needs of modern families, we provide several options for enrollment. Many schools offer a three or four-hour program followed by an after school program which requires children to transition to a separate environment with different caretakers. We eliminate these unnecessary and stressful transitions, maintaining the consistency and integrity of the Montessori experience.
Academic School Year:
- Full-Time (8:00 AM – 5:30 PM)
Encourages Parental Involvement
We recognize that parents are a vital part of our community! We offer regular parent education workshops and maintain a large lending library of Parenting books and publications. We also realize that strong marriages create flourishing families and offer a quarterly Parent’s Night Out (beginning in October) during which evening childcare (5:30-8:30) is provided to give parents the opportunity to have an evening off.
Our lead teacher is a highly experienced Montessori guide who holds an American Montessori Society (AMS) credential for this age group and regularly attends and contributes to Montessori conferences and professional development workshops. In addition to the required college education and Montessori coursework, the AMS certification process requires a year of supervised student teaching at an accredited Montessori school and a year of supervised visitations from an AMS field consultant who observes the guide in the classroom setting.
We are conveniently located in walking distance of the House of love Assemblies of God Church, Community 18 Lashibi. We are less than a 30 minutes’ drive from KFC Spintex and the Sakumono, Ashaiman road.
Safe, Healthy Environment
We provide an environment that is both safe and environmentally sound. At Bloom, we serve children nutritious snacks and filtered water. We use whole grain, organic, minimally processed ingredients whenever possible. Our lawns and playgrounds are never treated with pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Children use primarily wooden, hand-crafted, sustainably produced Montessori materials that are certified to be lead-free and produced by a family company that partnered with Maria Montessori herself and has made Montessori materials since 1920. We only employ healthy, non-smoking, professionals who share our philosophy and a passion for early childhood education.
