Welcome to AWS’ – Montessori Early Childhood Center
At AWS in our Montessori Early Childhood Center (MECC) we provide an option for young children to begin the formal learning process in a self guided classroom setting.
MECC grounds its program in the Maria Montessori methodology while incorporating faith-based lessons creating an environment that encourages children to develop a personal relationship with God.
Mission and Vision
The mission of Montessori Early Childhood Center is to partner with parents to nurture children in ways that promote spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, and social development through the Montessori approach and other developmentally appropriate educational practices. Our vision is to provide a quality program that prepares students for early school success.
Our education is about letting children make choices. At every age, students learn in different ways and at different rates. Our teachers are especially sensitive to the individual learning style of each child, and allow children to excel at their own pace. MECC utilizes certain teaching strategies and other best practices in early childhood education such as an; artistic environment where children can spontaneously ask questions, investigate, create and explore new ideas.
MECC Director’s Message
It is my privilege to be the director of the MECC. The energy and love of learning is very contagious. It’s impossible to put in words what the MECC looks like so I invite you to come see for yourself. Our one way viewing windows are a great way to observe them in action.
The MECC hands on lessons move from concrete to abstract and are individualized allowing each child to progress at their own pace. What make us different from other area Montessori programs are the faith-based lessons that encourage the children to develop a personal relationship with God while achieving their fullest potential.
Come by and see us in action.
