Learn about the program

My program is defined by the practical application of sensory-based and self-directed learning through the authentic Montessori Method. The goal is to prepare children to be focused, independent, and innovative learners, as well as responsible, respectful, and mindful individuals. 

This program is held in children’s own home environment as the best safe place for your child’s development.

Educational experience for Infants & Toddlers

The toddler years are the time when children use their bodies, senses, and emerging problem-solving skills to learn about and make sense of their world, in ways most meaningful and effective for them.

Dr. Montessori was one of the first educators to recognize the first few years of a child’s life as critical to the development of personality and intellect. Toddlers are actively seeking out information, they learn quickly and easily, and are especially interested in demonstrating independence.

Early Childhood Education

As children get older, they tend to see things that adults find ordinary as very interesting and special. Practical life exercises like sorting, pouring, or washing dishes absorb them completely.

We recognize this as the beginning of control and coordination of mind and body. That’s why Montessori learning revolves around tangible, hands-on experiences.

Children seek hands-on experiences and concrete materials to learn.

Montessori Sensorial Developement

The sensorial curriculum holds a significant place in Montessori methodology, because people experience their environment through their senses. They are driven to develop and refine senses from birth to gain a fuller and more productive relationship with the environment. Overall, sensorial education is intended to provide the child with a structure, vocabulary, concentration, sense of order and ultimately intellect.

Montessori Culture and Science

"The stars, earth, stones, life of all kinds form a whole in relation with each other, and so close is the relation that we cannot understand a stone without some understanding of the great sun! No matter what we touch, an atom, or a cell, we cannot explain it without knowledge of the wide universe."

“If the idea of universe is presented to the child in the right way, it will do more for him than just arose his interest, for it will create in him admiration and wonder, a feeling loftier than any interest and more satisfying."

Montessori Practical Life

Maria Montessori considered practical life activities, also called exercises of practical life, to be fundamental to a child's development. These activities are an increasingly challenging series of motor tasks involving practical real-life goals, such as cleaing a table, washing a plate, or polishing shoes. In addition to helping children master everyday tasks, the aim of practical life activites is to develop a child's independence, body control and coordination of movement, concentration, and sense of order.

"Lenka was a teacher for my son Frederick and daughter Issabel since they were 3 years old till 6 years. They loved to be in Lenka's class. Lenka's teaching style is about discovering of creativity and individual talents of each child. She leads the children to be able to work with the challenging sides of their personality. She gives always good feedback and suggestion, that I as a parent sometimes need."

"Lenka has been teaching my son since he was two years old. (He is almost 5.) She is dedicated to her students and makes the classroom fun for all of them. Our son looks forward to the time spent there. She makes a plan for every lesson and informs us about it ahead of the time, so the children have something to look forward to. I can see my son's learning progress and he loves to share what they were working on.  I couldn't be more happy and thankful about having my son in Lenka's class. "
