About bmpreschool

Burke Mountain Preschool is inspired by Maria Montessori and the Reggio Emilia philosophy and it is based on a Tribes principles. By incorporating an inspiring principle in our program, our goal is to offer a program that nurtures the love of learning, provides a sense of curiosity, and respect for self and others. We believe that children are independent learners who want to learn different thing s at different times and in different ways. We try to foster their learning styles by offering a broad variety of activities. It is each childʼs choice to participate in activities, or, if they choose to, they can pass. We foster childrenʼs learning through play. We believe that without play, optimal learning, normal social functions, self-control, and other executive functions may not mature properly. In play, we learn how to deal with lifeʼs wins and losses with grace. The best thing we can give our children is self-control. Preschool childrenʼs ability to resist temptation is a much better predictor of eventual academic success than their IQ scores. We promote self-control not by making children sit still, but by encouraging them to play. One of the major ways that children adapt to their circumstances is through play.

Merry Christmas to all, and best wishes in the New Year. See you all in 2019!
