Welcome to The Curious Minds Montessori School, an independent, non-sectarian school located in Chantilly, Virginia. Here, we put personal development first and work together with our teachers and parents to raise children that are kind and compassionate while also self-disciplined and independent. That holistic approach is what makes us different. Our goal is to foster a love of learning in our s

πŸ”΄ 🟣 🟒 Kandinsky Color Study 🟑 πŸ”΅ 🟠

When Kandinsky created his famous concentric circles, they weren't meant to be a work of art.

Instead, they were created as visuals to study how different color combinations work with each other and how people perceive it and how it affects their mood.

We use Kandinsky in our art lessons to teach the children the color wheel and complementary colors.

They love it because they can use any medium to create these colorful pieces of art!

We're committed to giving back to our community. 🀝

For our upcoming summer camps, we have big plans for food drives with local charities/units, and we'll even get the children involved!

The course of the pandemic could affect our planned activities and trips, but we will surely do our best to do it ALL!

And at the very least, we'll raise money and collect food to help people in need.

These activities will instill generosity and giving in our students, and we'd love to have your children join in as well.

Be sure to register by March 7th to have your registration fee waived!

A special day to celebrate meeting and making new friends?!

Now that's something we can get behind! 😊

Interacting with friends sharpens social skills and is extremely important for our growing children.

So in honor of National #MakeaFriendDay, we encourage you to go out and meet someone new or invite someone for a cup of coffee.

You never know β€” you may wind up meeting a friend for life!

For #throwbackthursday , we're throwing it back to our Love & Peace projects for MLK Day. πŸ•Š

Never underestimate the importance of hand-washing skills β€” now more than ever! 🧼

At The Curious Minds, we focus on this activity every day as part of our practical life learning.

This is a simple task that your toddler can work on at home. You can even set them up at a sink and let them practice.

They'll get to enjoy a fun water activity while learning an important life skill! It's a win-win!

Simple and straightforward β€” that's how we approach our work in the Montessori classroom. 🍎

Matching colors: βœ…
Hand-eye coordination: βœ…
Sharpening fine motor skills: βœ…

We embed all these things into our activities to keep our student's minds at ease and make it easier to absorb information.

Consider this at home with the activities and toys you provide your child.

Just keep it simple!

Fun Fact Friday! 🌟

Did you know Helen Keller inspired Maria Montessori's sensory materials?

Helen's special needs (being both deaf and blind) led to Maria creating new, more creative ways to learn that all children can benefit from!

01/17/2022

This man's dream will live on in our hearts and minds forever.

We hope to keep his dream aliveβ€” for hate is too great a burden to bear and we are sticking with love.

The Montessori Way: Classroom Breakdown 🍎

People often ask us why we mix age groups in Montessori classrooms.

There are many benefits to this approach, starting with the connection the student builds with the teacher. This connection enables the teacher to feed the child's interests, build on their strengths, and work on their developing potential.

Plus, the younger children often emulate the older children and learn by watching them work. The older children, on the other hand, often play the true leaders of the environment as they guide their younger peers with respect to work and social behavior while acting as role models and motivators.

The three years spent in a classroom also allow children to learn at their own pace, mastering work on their inner schedule versus a particular age or grade level.

All of these benefits make a big impact on our students' growth and sets a strong foundation for their future.

01/07/2022

The quote speaks for itself. 😊

We believe the children are our future.

Invest in their education, set them up for success, and teach them about our big, beautiful world. For they are our future leaders!

Let The Curious Minds help you on this journey. Visit our website or give us a call today to learn more.

Handmade gifts are the best gifts. 🌟

Over the past week, the children have been working hard on their holiday projects for their families.

They each got a small tray to decorate with their picture, fingerprints, and a design of their choice.

We love creating projects that parents can hang on to and bring back out as their kids grow older.

Little keepsakes that last a lifetime! ❀️
