We welcome you and your child to the exciting adventure of discovery and learning! Tanglewood Learning Center provides the opportunity for parents to choose a Preschool or a Montessori School. Montessori is an educational experience and not a daycare service. As a private school, we offer a year-­round educational program designed to promote the physical, social, cognitive and emotional development of children. Our philosophy is based on love and respect for each child as a special and unique individual. Tanglewood Montessori School is designed to fill the individual needs of children ages 18 months through kindergarten. The school is modeled after what Dr. Maria Montessori called "the prepared environment", an environment which possesses order and logic. These first years of school encourage a child's natural enthusiasm and love of learning. "Learning by doing", as called by Dr. Montessori, encourages practical applications and use of materials designed for that purpose. Children develop at their own pace and according to their own capabilities. This educational program fully incorporates the Montessori philosophy. Montessori methods and materials are used in all classrooms. We achieve our educational and social goals through one-­on-­one instruction, small group lessons and a variety of activities based on Montessori principles. Children are guided toward a state of self-­direction. Tanglewood Learning Center provides before and after school care for our students as well as an after school program for students from area schools. Our after school program offers parents a safe and happy environment for their children. We also offer a theme based, well planned, full day Summer Program.

Philosophy and Goals: Dr. Maria Montessori observed and studied the nature of the learning process in children. She believed that every child delights in spontaneous activity directed toward intellectual discovery. The carefully prepared environment of a Montessori classroom nourishes a child's natural development. Attitudes and confidence developed during the formative years will serve children throughout their lives. For a confident child, new activities are not only a challenge but also a delight. Children are most apt to retain a positive attitude toward learning and acquire confidence in a relaxed atmosphere where they set their own pace, follow their own interests and are free of criticism and competition.

The following are some basic Montessori concepts: Â&#x2021;&KLOGUHQDUHUHVSHFWHGDVGLIIHUHQWIURPDGXOWVDQGZKRGLIIHUIURPHDFKRWKHU Â&#x2021;&KLOGUHQSRVVHVVXQXVXDOVHQVLWLYLW\DQGPHQWDOSRZHUVIRUDEVRUELQJDQGOHDUQLQJIURPWKHHQYLURQPHQW Â&#x2021;7KHPRVWLPSRUWDQW\HDUVRIJURZWKDUHWKHILUVW\HDUVRIOLIHZKHQXQFRQVFLRXVOHDUQLQJLVJUDGXDOO\EURXJKWWR the conscious level.

This is a higher discipline which originates within children as they practice making their own decisions and exercising their own will. It is not a discipline imposed on the child by a teacher or based on rewards or punishments.

A

heart isn’t  the  end  of  the  world.  I  learned   that  the  love  that  I  want  to  experience  with   [WUMWVMQ[\PMTW^M\PI\2M[][[PW_ML_PMV he  died  for  me.  I  learned  that  this  love  is   M`\ZMUMTaPIZL\WÅVLJ]\Q\¼[_WZ\P\PM_IQ\

I learned  that  the  plan  I  have  for  myself  isn’t   always  the  plan  that  God  has  for  me.  I  learned   to  stop  being  angry  with  God  for  not  working   I   learned   that   all   of   us   fall   prey   to   the     according   to   my   schedule.   I   learned   to   be   a   ¹1V^QVKQJTM[;aVLZWUMºIVL\PMWVTaK]ZM JM\\MZ+PZQ[\QIV1TMIZVML\PI\Y]QM\\QUMQ[ is   fear.   Fear   for   our   loved   ones.   Fear   for   extremely  important.  I  learned  to  listen.     ourselves.   I   learned   not   to   take   anything   for   g ranted.   I   learned   t hat   people   are   suf I  learned  to  take  things  one  day  at  a  time.  I   NMZQVOM^MZa_PMZMVWUI\\MZ_PI\IOM1¼^M learned  that  it’s  ok  to  lie  in  bed  all  day  and   learned   to   love   life   even   if   it   doesn’t   eat  ice  cream  every  once  in  a  while.  I  learned   to  take  breaks.  I  learned  that  pushing  myself   love  me  b ack  all  t he  time. when  I’m  not  ready  is  probably  the  worst   1TMIZVML\PI\NZQMVL[PQXQ[\_W[QLML thing  I  can  possibly  do.
