The Montessori theory and practice of educating children began with Dr. Maria Montessori. Through scientific observations, she determined that children learn best when learning at their own pace and given the choice of his or her own activities. In addition, part of the Montessori teaching philosophy extends beyond the classroom to encompass the family and society. Dr. Montessori sought to develop in each child their self esteem, independence, a continual desire for learning, and respect for themselves as well as for all people.
Why Montessori Chinese?
With worldwide growing interest in China, as it is on the road to becoming a major international participant in the fields of business and culture, understanding Chinese language and culture can be a major ingredient for a child's future growth and success, as they move forward in their life’s journey.
Following the Montessori method of teaching, our program makes the learning process for children something they look forward to, a fun and enjoyable educational experience. The children are acquiring knowledge!

Montessori Chinese Language Preschool is dedicated to providing education for children consistent with the Montessori philosophy. Our focus is to provide the students with the desire and ability to learn the Chinese language and culture, along with the academics and social interactive skills necessary for maintaining healthy, productive lives. Included in our goal, is to help instill in every student responsibility, self respect, along with respect for each other, society and the natural environment, as stated by Dr.Maria Montessori.
Applying Dr. Montessori’s philosophy:
"Every child carries within them the person they will become”.
At MCLPS we believe that it is our responsibility to help every student to discover their individual potential. MCLPS has developed a sound and proven academic curriculum designed to motivate and challenge each child to meet his or her own academic needs while progressing at their own pace. We recognize the need for each child to progress at their own speed, thereby providing the freedom for that child to gain the confidence required to explore new and future educational interests, without being held back or losing momentum. And, if the child wants to repeat any lesson or activities, they have the freedom to do so. This in turn will contribute to the building of confidence within the child and to enable he or she to seek out new intellectual discoveries through the process of learning.
Here at the MCLPS, it’s all about helping the children to accomplish their goals and to achieve their feeling of success. At MCLPS we focus on establishing a solid foundation and learning experience for each child, designed for their continued future development and growth in all academic endeavors, and their personal life’s journey.
MCLPS is fully focused toward nurturing each child’s education, self esteem and individuality, directly incorporating the instructional and learning process designed by Dr. Maria Montessori.
We, the Montessori trained teachers of the MCLPS, are devoted to motivating our students for Success!!!
"Nurture, love and respect for the education of children".
