Park View Montessori supports the child as she prepares herself, not only for elementary school, but for life. Daily group lessons provide opportunities for community building. Small group activities promote turn-taking as well as problem solving. The outcome of the Toddler plus three year Preschool experience is a child who has been treated with respect, and deals respectfully with self and others. She enjoys successful interactions with children and adults, and has acquired skills to help deal with the give-and-take of daily social interaction. She has an authentic appreciation of liking herself, and can feel able to meet challenges that are part of daily living.
