Welcome to Royal Montessori Academy! My name is Tara Collins, I am a mother of 4 beautiful children and I also am a working Mom! As a Mother I look for an environments for my children that are bright, fun, exciting, encourage a love of learning, filled with teachers who are passionate about what they do, a structured curriculum and lastly a place that can provide that feeling that all parents are seeking; the feeling of comfort leaving your children there. The feeling that Mom’s and Dad’s just like me feel deep down in your gut and in your heart. The “Parent’s Intuition” if you will. In my search, I wasn’t able to find such environment which led me to opening Royal Montessori Academy!
This is an environment full of all the things I was seeking as a parent…and then some. I have collaborated with other parents, educators and schools on what we can do to be the best at what we do. Royal Montessori Academy will be incorporating the Montessori philosophy that a child learns from an inner motivation that is stimulated by his/her environment. I am a parent, just like you, and have created an environment where your opinions matter. An environment where you can collaborate with the school and the teachers to get the best out of our program for your child’s individual needs. Thank you for joining me on this ride and I look forward to watching your children grow!
I graduated from Iowa State University in 2011 with my degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, I started my teaching career as a 2nd grade teacher in Waukee, IA. I taught for 4 years and then made the big move up to Door County.
Once considered an educational experiment, Montessori is increasingly becoming the blueprint for a new approach to learning—one that’s demonstrating long-term success in both private and public U.S. schools Montessori’s core tenets, that effective learning is self-directed and that education calls for development of the “whole person”, are shaping a generation uniquely prepared for the demands of the 21st century. Montessori education is both a philosophy of child development and a rationale for quality in that development. The special method, named for the Italian physician Maria Montessori, stresses the importance of the development of a healthy self-concept. Education, she believed, is a preparation for life, not merely a search for intellectual skills. The child has one intuitive aim - his/her self development.
Royal Montessori Academy’s mission is to provide quality education in a safe, diverse, nurturing and creative environment that helps the development of the whole child. The mission ensures that the child is academically motivated, artistically creative, physically attire and emotionally supported.
