3 Mariposas Montessori school in Cabarete
…where children, parents, teachers work together.
Our mission is to co-create with children, parents and teachers a unique early childhood development program that will provide the children of our community with the critical foundation needed for educational success and a happy and healthy life.
We fulfill our mission by focusing on these areas:
- Self esteem
- Cultural & environmental awareness
- Healthy lifestyle
- Care for ourselves & others
- Peace education
- Art education
Our vision is to replicate this sustainable model throughout the Dominican Republic so that children, parents and teachers may be active leaders in society and take pride in their community.
This child-centered, hands-on program for 2 1/2 to 6 year-olds allows the children to thrive. Our classroom environment fosters the fulfillment of the young learner’s highest potential – social, emotional, behavioral, physical, artistic and intellectual – as a member of a family and a community.
Home Education for Parents
Home visits are made to assist parents with creating the best home environment possible for their children. Suggestions are made on how to provide a healthier, safer, happier and more educationally centered home for their little ones.
Regular training is given to the teacher in order for her to reach a mastery level of the Montessori methodology. One crucial lesson the teacher learns is “to stir up life, but leave it free to develop”. (Maria Montessori)
