We provide a model that is different from all daycare and existing Montessori schools in today’s market place. MKU incorporates the best application of several curriculums. Our proprietary curriculum utilizes Maria Montessori’s time-tested curriculum. One that has successfully enhanced children’s learning abilities for the past 110 years. We improve it by incorporating Reggio Emilia’s use of the Art of Science, to enhance a child’s development in creativity and Science for critical thinking and discovery. The Reggio Emilia approach is an educational philosophy focused on preschool and primary education. The curriculum is based on principles of respect, responsibility, and community through explo- ration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment based on the interests of the children through a self-guided curriculum. The Montessori education enhanced with a Reggio inspired Art and Science experience make S.T.E.A.M: Science, Technology. Engi- neering, Art & Math. Integrating these two power curriculums nurtures your child’s spirit, inspires their own creativity and provides a comprehensive education. 1213 Santa Fe Dr | Weatherford | 31
