Head Over Heels Montessori Preschool
September Newsletter! (Click on PDF above)
Hello, my name is Roxy McDermott, I am elated to be taking this journey in your child’s life. The Preschool years are the most formative years in a child’s life. I don’t take that lightly. I love what I do and the children I get to work with. I was first introduced to the Montessori Method in 1991 when I took a job as a Teacher’s assistant at a Montessori School in Auburn Washington. I instantly fell in love with how the children moved throughout the classroom that was prepared just for them. They were able to use all their senses to learn. There was a freedom that I had never experienced in a school or childcare facility. It was beautiful how the children would work with their materials and engage in lessons with joy and focus. It was an easy choice for me to pursue the courses I needed to become a certified Montessori Preschool teacher. From day one in my Montessori Preschool journey, my Mission has not wavered. My hope is to offer each child the opportunity to realize his or her potential, to promote and instill self-confidence and independence. To create opportunities where they will seek and enjoy cooperation with others, that the child will gain a sense of responsibility for themselves and their actions. To have an environment that lets them foster their creative intelligence and imagination. And more than anything, I hope to instill a joy of work and a love of learning.
Thank you again, for the honor in sharing your child’s journey in education and enlightenment.
Please look over the schedule and the options available for full or part time participation. You can choose your favorite option and register and pay online (you will have the same payment options/schedule with the preschool as you have with your gymnastics or dance classes - paying for each month part way through the previous month, and paying with cash/check or automatic payments after the first month which will be charged to your card). Figuring out the schedule to maximize the times available will take some work, so please email me with your preferences as soon as you can so I can begin to keep track of each half day and space available. Just let me know which option you selected online, and which days you prefer, as well as mornings or afternoons. I will be able to confirm that those times/days are available and get your place reserved.
Looking forward to a great year,
