We are an educational institute that embraces community, diversity and nationalities.
Montessori Gifted Prep features interactive touchscreens to facilitate live cross-cultural & language collaboration with partnership schools across the globe. Partnerships include preschools in China, Australia, and Colombia. This initiative supports our unique approach towards cultural and language learning for early childhood education.
Why the focus on multilingualism? In most countries, the ability to speak more than one language is considered a critical part of a good education. Studies show that speaking two or more languages increases cognitive ability and improves executive function throughout a lifetime. In the decades ahead, 80% of global economic growth will take place outside the United States. English, Mandarin, and Spanish are now emerging as the three most-spoken languages in the world and those who can speak, read, and write them fluently will be at a great advantage. Backed by an exceptional education and a strong social emotional learning curriculum, Montessori Gifted Prep students will have increased opportunities to use what they’ve learned to make the world a better place. We teach a wide range of socially significant skills, to equip our students with the necessary knowledge, abilities, and outlook to become global leaders, change-makers, and ambassadors for the 21st century.
China: Our students learn culture and language from teachers and students located in central China. Enjoy some of the pictures of our partnership school, Tienuo Bilingual Preschool, located in Tongchuan, Shaanxi, China. The school has over 280 students between 3-6 years old. With a population of 1 million, the city of Tongchuan, is a leader in the global coal mining industry.
Colombia: Enjoy pictures of our partnership school,Centro Educativo Senderitos, located in Salomia Cali, Colombia. The Senderitos school has mixed age groups and includes 67 children between 3-6 years old. With a population of 2.3 million, Cali is the most populated city in Western Colombia. We are fortunate to learn culture and language from teachers and students located in the most populated city in Western Colombia. Cali is rich in heritage; nowhere is the nation's racial diversity and harmony more apparent than here.
Australia: We are partnered with Cameragal Montessori School in Sydney, Australia. Cameragal provides a program for children under three years old, preschool for three to six year old boys and girls, and primary school for six to nine year olds. Similar to how Montessori Gifted Prep honors our Native American tribal nations, Australia's Montessori Indigenous learning programs are also emerging, and Indigenous communities appreciate the fact that their own culture is respected within Montessori classrooms.
