In its seventh year of operation, Village Montessori & Preparatory School continues to provide families with the best preschool and private kindergarten education in Fort Mill, Tega Cay and the Charlotte area. As Fort Mill’s top rated Montessori school, Village Montessori excels at providing a caring, supportive and culturally diverse learning environment for both students and families.
Having recently opened an infant room catering to newborn care, a learning lab to assist children with virtual learning, and continuing their acclaimed after school program in Fort Mill, Village Montessori focuses on care and education for children ranging from 6 months to 6th grade. Educational support and learning intervention services are also available through private instruction and small group classes.
Utilizing both the Montessori and Balanced Literacy curriculums allows the school to focus on developing productive, independent, and respectful lifelong learners. The school’s education philosophy aims to foster intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social and physical development to prepare children for their educational journey and for life.
Founder and Owner, Lisa Gerard emphasizes, “Today, more than ever, we strive to partner with parents to develop in our little students a deep sense of empathy, compassion and love for their fellow classmates, teachers, community and world.”
To reach this goal, Village Montessori implemented a new Diversity & Inclusion program this year through their classroom activities and enrichment programs. Each month a different country is highlighted and students celebrate the cultural uniqueness, diverse cuisine, and distinct art of that country.
In the fall months, Italy, Israel and the United States were featured countries. Activities included sampling Italian and Israeli cuisine, painting Van Gogh sunflower fields, and creating unique fall pop art masterpieces. This spring the school featured Haiti, China, India, Australia and Mexico. Children tried traditional Haitian, Chinese and Indian foods, created Chinese new year fans, Mexican folk art and aboriginal dot paintings, and danced to Indian music at the school’s second annual Indian Holi Festival of Colors.
“The Diversity & Inclusion program is just one aspect of our curriculum that makes Village Montessori one of the best preschools in Fort Mill,” shares Leah Barrett, the school’s Art and Veggiecation enrichment teacher. “The emphasis on other countries has not only created greater understanding and exposure to different cultures but it has also given our students the opportunity to experience firsthand the unique ways people live all around the world.”
