Both guides have the AMI certification, as well as bachelor’s in education, psychology, and family development. During this new journey the objective is to continue offering the legacy and the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori and to accomplish the principles and practices within the AMI paths. Our team offers guides with experience managing every possible environment and situation that will allow them to continue offering quality of work and respect for the child, just like it has been done before.
What it Offers?
Crystal Escuela Montessori is a prepared environment where children work and learn at their own pace. The children naturally develop, through work, qualities such as motivation, concentration, freedom, discipline, and love of work.
The Spanish Program
Crystal Escuela Montessori’s program is in Spanish. It exposes children early on to a new language, for those students who speak English at home, and encourages the Spanish-speaking children to maintain their native language by improving vocabulary, reading and writing in Spanish. In addition, the children will learn English naturally and effortlessly from their community and from the environment they live in. The Spanish Program is supported by solid and fundamental principles reinforced the Bilingual Education; during the first years, a child has the inherent ability to learn any other language besides his native language.
The Importance of The Guide
The Guide is the link between the children and the material within the prepared environment. It is the Guide’s responsibility to carefully prepare a nourished, structured, orderly, clean and attractive environment for the children. In a small group (12 students), the Guide works individually with each child focusing on their needs unveiling the material for Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics and Cultural areas.
WHAT IS AMI CERTIFICATION AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
AMI (Association Montessori International) is an organization established by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1929 to keep and protect the integrity of her teaching methods and to guarantee every student receives true Montessori education building strong bases for life.
