Children are born with an innate desire to explore, learn and master their environments. The classrooms and curriculum at Renaissance Montessori Academy are carefully and thoughtfully prepared with this in mind. Our program, offered to children ages 2 ½ through Kindergarten, is designed to set a strong foundation of self-confidence and a sincere love of learning. At a pace comfortable and applicable to each child, independence and discovery is encouraged in self-directed, hands-on activities and experiences. Nurturing self-development, independence and confidence for each child is our priority. We are determined to effectively prepare each child we reach with tools and traits that will help to ensure successful futures, in school and beyond.
Renaissance Montessori Academy is a joyful, child-focused community of families, teachers and administrators who work together to support each one of our children. Each classroom is guided by a Montessori Certified Lead Teacher. A 1:10 adult to child ratio and classroom efficiency is maintained with our highly qualified Assistant Teachers. Our lead and assistant teachers focus on the developmentally appropriate development of academic, social and emotional skills by integrating the following concepts into daily works: Art, Communication, Culture, Language, Practical Life, Mathematics, Music, Sensory Awareness.
The Renaissance School, a Douglas County charter school that would be opening at the same time and desired the highest-quality pre-school and kindergarten program possible for the younger siblings.
For that very reason, many of those parents became the original members of the Renaissance Montessori Academy Board of Directors and 16 years later, Renaissance Montessori Academy is a community of learners continuing to prepare kids for elementary school.
Just as was the case when we opened our doors, parents are encouraged to participate in our activities. Whether it’s for special events, field trips, lessons about their professions or one-on-one discussions of educational and developmental issues with teachers, parents are a vital part of the learning that goes on at RMA.
The Renaissance staff conducts one meeting early in the year to discuss our philosophy of child development with parents. Then we host more meetings to celebrate the achievements of the students. Our goal is to bring students, teachers and parents together in a community that promotes curiosity and a lifelong love of learning that can’t be equaled anywhere else.
