Phoenix Montessori has been nurturing and providing care for children in the Renton
area since 1995. Our head educators are AMS certified Montessori Instructors, each
with over 20 years of experience, and our Director is a State Certified K-12 teacher.
Our owners/directors are full time teachers in the classroom.
We are a licensed Preschool and offer a Certified Kindergarten Program. We provide
full and half day programs for children ages 2 ½ through 6 years old.
The Montessori environment is highly organized, structured and consistent. Within
this framework a child is confident knowing what to expect, and what is expected
of them, allowing them the freedom to move, learn and pursue what they are interested
in at their own pace.
Year Round Learning
We offer an enriched Montessori learning environment from September – June, following
the same schedule as the Renton School District. We also offer an optional Summer
Program, which includes the practice and production of a performance
in late August.
The Montessori classroom is a carefully prepared environment that allows children
to move, touch, manipulate and explore materials within each curriculum area. Montessori
children experience daily lessons during “circle” time as a group and through one-on-one
presentations from instructors as well as their independent use of Montessori materials.
Children absorb everything they are exposed to. Children learn to work independently,
based on their own desire for knowledge, which builds self discipline and concentration.
We provide a mixed age classroom where younger children learn and model after the
older children in behavior and academics, and older children gain confidence mentoring
younger children. Their own knowledge is reinforced when they are sharing what they
know with the younger child. The goal of our programs is to provide a positive learning
experience for each child and to meet the needs of our students.
