An education for life

We like to say Montessori is an education for life. When your child leaves our care, we want them to feel confident and prepared for the real life and academic challenges ahead.
For small children, a big part of being prepared is practicing independence in self-care tasks. At CELC we work with children every day on tasks like independent dressing, drinking from cups without lids, using buttons and zippers, and hand washing.
These may seem like tasks that everyone will pick up eventually, but how many times have you watched older children and adults exit a public restroom and skip washing their hands?! Caring for themselves builds confidence in young children, lays a foundation for good habits, and frees up parents and caretakers valuable time. Win, win, win!
