July 11, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg, based in Leesburg, Virginia, has announced that their Teacher of the Month Award was given to Amirah Bragg.

Ms. Kimberly, the School Director at Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg, says, “Amirah Bragg truly deserves the Teacher of the Month Award. Most of us know that it can be quite a challenge to serve as a teacher for toddlers but Amirah is always happy to lend a helping hand for the children and their families. And she does that with a big smile, which certainly helps a lot in providing a positive environment for our children. Congratulations Amirah!”

The Toddler class is for toddlers ages 18 months to 36 months. At this particular stage, the children learn by means of exploring through their senses. Thus, they wan to see, hear, touch, taste, and smell everything. The Toddler classroom at Villa Montessori provides such learning opportunities for the toddlers both inside and outside the classroom.

The Villa Montessori Toddler classrooms offer a wide range of outlets for the toddlers to explore, using various media, such as painting, light table discovery opportunities, sculpting, gardening, music and movement, and yoga. The environment for the toddlers has been set up in such a way that it encourages the toddlers to investigate, experiment, and be creative.

At this particular stage, toddlers are just realizing that there are others in their environment and they start to learn how to cooperate with others through play. A challenge for them is to communicate their ideas and emotions to others. The preschool provides them with the tools they require to explore their environment at this stage.

Teachers like Amirah treat each child as an individual, who has his or her own ideas, opinions, and expressions. The school and the teachers offer the outlets that can represent the many “languages” of the child. These can include painting, drawing, shadow play, sculpture, scientific observations, dramatic play, music, and gardening.

It should be remembered that the Montessori Method was developed and pioneered by Dr. Maria Montessori. Through careful observation, Dr. Montessori was able to notice that children have a natural desire to learn and explore their environments. It is from this observation that she developed the Montessori curriculum with scientifically designed educational materials that are designed to be project oriented and hands-on.

The Montessori classroom is designed to allow the children to work independently and allow them to experience the joy of discovering things for themselves. The teachers serve as guides who introduce the materials from which the children can choose from to help them discovery certain facts and ultimately master their ideas. While lessons are provided, the goal is for the children to discover the answers for themselves through auto-didactic and self-correcting materials.

It is through this system that the children are able to grow academically. They gradually discover for themselves how to solve mathematical problems, identify geometric shapes, write beautifully, name the continents, and talk about scientific concepts.

At Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg, the Montessori Method is combined with the Reggio approach to early childhood education. This approach is designed to help the children develop higher critical thinking skills required to understand what questions they want to ask.

Villa Montessori Preschool Leesburg is strategically located in Leesburg, Virginia, thus, it is able to serve the families living in the neighboring areas of Round Hill, Paeonian Springs, Waterford, Lovettsville, Hamilton, Ashburn, Purcellville, Brambleton, Lucketts, Lansdowne, Sterling, and South Riding.
