The Christian Center School began in 1985 with the purpose of providing a Montessori education in a Christian atmosphere. Montessori education emphasizes individual activity to help each young child reach his or her full potential.
Christian Center School offers quality education in a Christian environment. Christian teachers guide each child according to his or her individual needs, pushing each one toward optimum growth in all areas of development.
Dr. Maria Montessori felt that the goal of education should be to cultivate the child’s own natural desire to learn rather than to fill his mind with facts.
A Montessori school is not a play school. A Montessori classroom can be an intensely busy place, yet it’s a happy place as well. A Montessori environment is one in which a child is allowed to experience the excitement of learning.
All equipment in the classroom allows the child to build on his or her casual observations by inviting one to use the senses for learning. A Montessori course of study is a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of a child’s sensitive years when he or she can absorb knowledge from an enriched environment.
A child who develops basic motor skills and learns reading, writing, and arithmetic in a natural way has the advantage of receiving an education without tediousness, boredom and discouragement.
Subjects and habits taught in a Montessori environment benefit children throughout their lifetimes.
Examples of subjects and habits taught are to organize one’s work, to concentrate, to finish every task, to put things back where they belong, to respect the rights of others and their environments, and to choose, progressively, more difficult and challenging projects.
