Our Philosophy

Little Seeds of Park Slope is a small American Montessori-based program that offers a Mandarin immersion option. We believe that each child is a unique individual, and we are sensitive to each of our children’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. We provide developmentally appropriate Montessori-based programs that focus on the process of learning and help children to explore and engage with our classroom materials. We encourage not just learning, but also the love of learning. 

We believe in providing a physical environment that is safe, clean, healthy, and oriented twoard children. The classroom is arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a range of development levels. Activity areas allow children the opportunity to explore, to experience, and most importantly, to succeed.  Our teachers create a caring and nurturing atmosphere and foster each child’s creativity and positive self-image. We believe in positive methods of discipline. At Little Seeds, we establish consistent, age-appropriate limits to help children function in their world.  We strive to create mutual respect between parents and teachers and encourage daily communication between parents and school staff.
