Our Philosophy

Guidance of Learning

Our school is based upon the fundamental need of each child to have freedom of within limits. We structure our classroom so that children are given ample opportunity to explore their world with their hands in a safe environment so they may learn.

Freedom of Movement

To encourage a broad understanding of the world, we encourage the children to move about freely, choosing their “work” with responsibility and freedom. We nurture their independence and watch their self confidence grow as they learn through thoughtfully planned projects that allow them to learn as individuals, at their own pace and to reach toward their full potential.

Socialization

As children learn, we encourage them to use their growing vocabulary ad express themselves as a individuals. We love chatting with the children in our care, talking about their interests, life values and loved ones.

We believe children learn by building on the knowledge they already have – primarily exhibited through play. Teachers help children learn by creating a rich environment to explore via exciting educational activities.

  1. Image of the child

    Teachers can then shape and build on that knowledge by discovering what children already know through observation, one-on-one conversation, clarification, and invitation to explore the world around them.

  2. Positive Discipline

    Spanking or other methods of corporal punishment are never to be used as a means of disciplining students. This no spanking policy extends to parents with their own children while at school or school sponsored events.

  3. Environment is important

    We like to work and play in attractive surroundings so our buildings are clean, relatively tidy, and pleasing to the eye. The outdoor environments are large, have colourful and interesting gardens, and a variety of activities.

What is Montessori education?

Montessori education is recognized internationally as a merited educational method.
For more than a century now, the child-focused approach that Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician, developed for educating children has been transforming schools around the globe. Two important mental structures of Montessori education are Sensitive Period and Absorbent Mind.

What is Sensitive Period? Why is it so important?

The Sensitive Periods she describes in The Secret of Childhood, “When some of these psychic passions die away, other flames are kindled and so infancy passes from conquest to conquest; in continuous vital vibrancy, which we have called its joy and simplicity.” That is why, at particular epochs of their life, they reveal an intense and extraordinary interest in certain objects and exercises, which one might look for in vain at a large age.” During developmental “primetimes,” neurons can create synapses most easily and efficiently. These periods have traditionally been referred to as “Sensitive Periods.”
These Sensitive Periods correspond with a child’s development of movement, language, sensory perceptions, and sense of order.

What is the Absorbent Mind? Why is it so important?

Dr. Montessori’s book, she chose to label the child’s mind as the Absorbent Mind.
She described how an infant/child’s mind takes in all the sensorial and emotional data present in the environment without filtering or prioritizing. Maria Montessori: Her Life and Work, E.M. Standing’s book, Montessori as saying, it is logical that if the psychic life is to construct itself, by incarnating the environment, the intelligence must observe and study it first.”
The term “incarnating” might seem strange to use in reference to the development of a young child’s mind, this means the brain is literally creating itself and its knowledge from the absorbed experiences. If this is the time when the brain is most active in creating synaptic connections, then parents and educators must be sensitive to the first three years of child’s life as the foundation upon which all further learning is built.

Who is Dr. Jun?

Youngsoon Jun, Ed.D is the founder, educator and a leader who specialized in early childhood education for over three decades. Her credentials include a master’s degree from College of Notre Dame and a doctorate degree from the University of San Francisco.
Dr. Jun pioneered the Montessori Method in South Korea in 1985. Since then, she has opened several successful schools, trained teachers where thousands of children have thrived in the Montessori setting.
She is thrilled to have her first Montessori school in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and is inspired by the community to continue her work encouraging children to be empowered and instill a love for learning.
