Pre K Appleton

“As an only child, our daughter was very reserved and timid. Watching her confidence blossom to the point where she’s ready to help others is something we never thought we’d see!! So grateful to find Miss Stacie and a Montessori school so close in Appleton!”

Developing Young Leaders: Our Montessori Approach to Education

Learning is a lifelong journey. Advocating for their continuous growth, we ensure every child feels safe enough to explore new concepts and ideas. With each interaction, whether with Ms. Stacie, other kids, or parents, they understand that making mistakes is part of the growth process.

For many families, the cost of private school education, especially Montessori programs, can be a major barrier to providing their child with a high-quality education.  Early education programs often lack parent involvement, creating a drop-off and pick-up experience and disconnection from the child’s formative years.

At our Montessori pre-k school and kindergarten, children are not just students but leaders. The older children take on the role of mentors, helping and guiding the younger ones, creating a collaborative and supportive learning environment. With the teacher serving as a facilitator, the students take ownership of their education, developing confidence and a strong foundation that will serve them well beyond graduation day. Our approach to education nurtures not just academic success but also the growth of confident and capable young leaders.  Our private school’s lower cost is due to active parental involvement and support. Parents volunteer their time and resources to assist the teacher, reducing overhead costs and making tuition more affordable for families.

Every child develops at their own pace. At our school, we respect their uniqueness, focusing on the whole child and their developmental needs. This creates a personalized learning experience that emphasizes hands-on learning, independence, and collaboration. Our hands-on approach ensures children learn by doing, transitioning from concrete experiences to abstract understanding. This fosters creativity, critical thinking skills, and a love for learning, setting them up for future success.

A Personalized Approach to Whole Child Development

“We have loved being at a Montessori preschool where our daughter got to have the same teacher for three years. It allowed them to know each other well and learn their strengths, weaknesses, and interests to meet her needs best. Having a teacher who understands my child so well is a gift!”

Our Mission

“As a parent of four, the Children's School's half-day program allowed my children to bond with siblings and friends, engage in solitary play, and explore beyond the classroom, while also providing a supportive and loving community that fostered their unique strengths and social-emotional development. I would not trade those gentle early years together for anything.”

Preschool Education Appleton
  • At our Montessori pre-k, we prioritize the child's overall well-being, fostering their social-emotional health, building their confidence, and teaching self-control - essential skills for long-term success in both public school and life. With the benefit of one-on-one time with a dedicated teacher for three years, our students receive individualized attention and support, ensuring their academic success and setting them on a path to reach their full potential.

  • At our Montessori preschool, half-day classes are more than sufficient to meet the educational needs of each student. With small class sizes and a focus on individualized attention and personalized learning, our students receive the necessary support and guidance to reach their full potential. Each student's needs are met with intention, ensuring that their growth and development are nurtured in a meaningful and impactful way.

  • The push for early childhood education has increased as we all want our children to succeed. While academic success is important, it's only one aspect of a child's well-being. Interestingly, in countries where kids are happiest, they attend school fewer days and hours than in America (source). We prioritize quality over quantity and work closely with parents who want to be involved in their child's education. We understand that not everyone may agree with our approach, but what matters is providing children with a strong foundation for a happy and successful future.

  • Determining if your child is ready for Montessori preschool can be a complex question, as every child develops at their own pace. However, we've created a helpful resource in the form of a Google Doc that delves into the topic in greater detail. This tool is designed to assist you in determining if your child is ready to take the next step in their educational journey with us.
