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.

A Visitor at Preschool

One of our former students came to visit on her Pro D Day and read a book to our Mon/Wed/Fri class. This was her idea that she asked to take part in, and as teachers it was wonderful to see a child who began in a place where “a love of learning begins here” is the motto doing so well in her academic journey!

Upcycling Before Recycling

Our idea for this final month of the school year was to bring recyclable materials to the preschool in place of toys, letting each child’s creative imagination run wild.

We had no idea how many benefits this would have. Besides being lots of fun, the children have gained skills such as problem-solving, creativity, curiosity and so much more. We look forward to the adventures to come these next few weeks!
