The growing expansion within the public school system of kindergarten and pre-kindergarten is leading to greater public discussion about what a “good” early learning experience should be. These types of articles and discussions enable us, as parents, to be better informed about how schools play a role in our children’s development.

Mildenhall Montessori Schools promote a child’s creativity, independence, and curiosity by providing an environment that is responsive to each child’s developmental stage. Our teachers trust that the child will achieve beyond any set standards if given the opportunity to do so. This education is founded on respect for every individual’s diversity, independence, and curiosity. The environment and skilled teachers support self-initiative and self-confidence through the development of critical thought, experimentation, and exploration. The guidance towards independence and self-discipline invites children from 2 to 12 years of age to actively participate in the world.
