Nestled in the Solano County Fairgrounds, New Horizons a Montessori School was established in 1984 in Vallejo, California and has been serving the community for more than 30 years. Our school serves children ages 2-6 years old in a safe and nurturing environment.
“Montessori is an education for the independence, preparing not just for school, but for life.”
Our classroom environment is designed to promote the development of the whole child, according to their individual abilities. The specialized learning materials and methods employed in this prepared Montessori environment motivate the child to work in areas of Sensorial Awareness, Language, Geography, Mathematics, Sciences, Music, Art, and Daily Living.
The materials and methods utilized in this facility foster the child’s growing independence through exercises of their choice. Each child works at their own level of ability, interest, and pace. No two children need to arrive at the same time or for the same length of time. Therefore, the Montessori environment is prepared for each child to find work that is just right for their own development and interest.
A Montessori education promotes learning from your environment. We encourage your child to be curious, through this, your child discovers that learning is an enjoyable experience.
We encourage the children to choose the activities that they are interested in. We value their individuality and understand that every child needs time to discover their own abilities, accrue knowledge, and to gain new skills. We value their individuality and the time they need to discover knowledge at their own pace.
When a child takes the time to solve a puzzle, write their name, or successfully complete skills task, their self-esteem builds the foundations for further success and motivation for learning. Our teachers enjoy seeing a child’s ability to solve problems grow because of their accrued experience and desire to learn.
We strongly encourage parents and families to continue the learning at home. Allow your child time to discover their world through play and exploration. Additionally, take some time to read, sing, and talk to them. Here are some fun resources for parents and families to engage with your child at home.
