As a parent, you know your own child better than anyone. Not only are you selecting a school for your child to learn, but also a place that will allow them to blossom and grow. We would love to help them do that at Viz!
Our Montessori program, established more than 50 years ago and the first of its kind in the St. Louis area, allows children to learn in multi-age groups, at their own pace, with freedom of choice. A primary goal of our Montessori program is to help each child reach full potential in all areas of life. His or her physical, emotional, social, aesthetic, spiritual, and cognitive needs and interests are considered inseparable and equally important. The Montessori curriculum, under the direction of a specially educated teacher, provides the resources and atmosphere for exploration and discovery, allows students to experience the joy of learning, promotes the development of self-esteem, and fosters respect for one’s self, for others, and for the environment.
The Viz Montessori has three distinctive yet cohesive programs: the Toddler Program for 2-year-olds, the 3-5-Year-Old Program, and Kindergarten. As children progress, Practical Life Skills and Freedom of Choice are reinforced and additional concepts such as Order, Concentration, Coordination, Independence, and Respect for Others are introduced. By the time the children are in Kindergarten, they have become the leaders, taking on more responsibility and even teaching younger students.
There is something truly special going on in the Viz Montessori. We invite you to discover all the wonderful opportunities our programs have to offer to your child.
