What a time to be in preschool! Covid-19 has disrupted public and private preschools in California including, of course, Dublin, California.
Dublin has public preschool options, which are currently 100% online. We complement that with our Dublin, California, preschool options which can be online only, face-to-face in our Dublin campus, or a blend of both! So you can have the best of all possible worlds!
Our Dublin campus has five large classrooms filled with only the best Montessori materials from which the children can choose. The Montessori method respects each child as an individual and therefore lets the child decide to find something that interests him and about which he would like to find out more. He can then take the materials away and play with them, learn about them, find out what they do or are for, and as a result the child very quickly comes to love learning for its’ own sake because he is doing something which he finds interesting.
We also have a superb outdoor play area which is close to the back of the campus and is fully gated and secure, providing a safe environment in which the children can play and learn.
Our Dublin, California, preschool options are convenient for parents who are looking for a Montessori preschool because we are ideally situated for both the 680 and 580. This means that we have parents who commute in from San Ramon, Livermore, Pleasanton, Verona, Castro Valley, and more.
Virtual Learning Available Too
Of course, as we have said, your child doesn’t need to come on to the campus at all if you are undertaking to homeschool and want the benefit of Montessori tuition online for your child. You can enroll in our virtual program which offers virtual teaching each day by age group. The curriculum blends the best of the Montessori method with homeschool and online alternatives so that your child can learn English, math, science, Spanish, and much more using Zoom, Facebook Live, and YouTube.
So, for instance, we have three Facebook Live sessions each day of 30 – 45 minutes for children 18 months – 3 years, 3 – 4.5 years, and 4.5 – 6 years. Many of these get upwards of 300 views, but if your child cannot attend a live session for any reason, that is not a problem because all sessions are recorded and can be viewed later. All of the past videos are here too, so your child can catch up with anything that he might have missed or view the content for a different age group as well. So, if your child is a quick learner, he may wish to watch some content for the next higher age group. It is entirely up to you as a parent.
