Our teachers are guided by each child and the Montessori ideal that each child learns at his or her own pace. Brilliance Academy encourages independence in children by giving them the opportunity to express themselves if they dislike a particular task, need help, or simply don’t feel ready. Brilliance Academy involves parents closely in every child’s education through a careful cultivation of a relationship between the child, teacher and parent.
The Montessori Curriculum
Brilliance Academy focuses its curriculum on five main aspects, bringing them all together to compliment each other in the Montessori School tradition.
Language Arts – Verbal expression is encouraged and children are taught to trace and recognize letters as a beginning step to learning to read. The introduction of Sign Language to the Montessori curriculum also gives children a literacy advantage.
Learning through the Senses – Experience is the key to understanding. Learning exercises incorporate all five senses to engage children and give them hands-on, real-world comprehension.
Practicalities of Life – Guidance of children through their everyday activities – tying shoes, preparing snacks, putting on jackets, etc. – creates confidence and security.
Hands-on Mathematics – Utilizing physical objects to express numbers gives students a clear understanding of basic math concepts, from decimals to division.
Cultural Awareness – Brilliance Academy stresses the Montessori ideal of expanding a child’s awareness of geography, zoology, science and art.
Brilliance Academy’s Montessori program encourages children to work together to learn from each other through cooperation as well as guidance from our teachers. The diversity in Brilliance Academy classrooms gives children an early understanding of cultural differences and equality, preparing them for an expanding, global society and their future.
