My daughter Mihika, started Aster Montessori when she was 3 years old. She also continued in their Kindergarten program and loved it. The Kindergarten curriculum focused not only on reading, writing, and math but also includes science, geography, and computer time. Mihika also enjoyed music and learning Spanish which is offered in their curriculum. Ms. Aparna was teaching the Kindergarten class and the day was full of learning, exploring, and skill building. She followed the Montessori philosophy of building a strong foundation. The kids explored the concepts first, and then with repetition as kids got more confident with the concept they were moved to advanced levels in each area. In addition, kids did a number of interesting projects throughout the year that were both fun and educational.
My daughter had two great years at Aster Montessori ... Pre-k and Kindergarten. The curriculum focused not only on reading, writing, and math but also included science and geography. Most of all, she enjoyed Spanish and music classes which were offered in the curriculum. She was first exposed to the basics and then challenged with advanced work. In addition, the kids did a number of projects throughout the year that were both fun and educational.
Aster Montessori School is a great place for our kids. The teachers are very professional, flexible, kind, and caring. They provide a stimulating learning environment in an intimate home-like atmosphere. Aster Montessori has an awesome program! My son is more organized, follows directions, and he has improved his analytical and coordination skills. He loves his teachers and is always very happy to go to school.
Our daughter really enjoyed the time she spent at Aster Montessori. Ms. Aparna is a very good, professional teacher and gives a personal touch whenever she deals with the kids and parents. Our daughter has picked up her vocabulary and math skills very well and she loves her Spanish and Music classes. Keep up the good work!!!!
We could not be more pleased with the education our daughter received while at Aster Montessori. She thrived in the small, orderly class and has benefited from so much individual attention from Ms. Aparna. She had a great preschool year and we are very happy with her academic development.
My daughter, Rhea had a good school year at Aster Montessori. The school environment is safe and clean. Rhea learnt in all different areas whether it was math or reading, science or music. I found Ms. Aparna very professional and she was always available to talk about my child's progress. I am very happy with Aster Montessori and staff.
Enrolling Preschool through Kindergarten (3 to 6 years old)
We offer individual attention to every child.
Our emphasis is on whole-child development,
which uniquely focuses on each child's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development.
Aster Montessori is a small preschool located in a quiet neighborhood between Issaquah and Sammamish, WA. Our school provides excellent early childhood education, based on the Montessori Method. The basic premise of this method is that children are uniquely intelligent and learn naturally. We promote a learning environment in which teachers challenge each child to extend fully his or her unique style of learning.
In our programs, the children experience learning spontaneously, driven by their own natural curiosity. When children have the ability to direct their own course of study by choosing what and how they learn, their educational involvement takes place on a deeper, more authentic level. This allows each child to absorb and retain information better than in a conventional early childhood setting.
