Minutes away from the peaceful city of Buena Park is a school bursting with learning and activity! Arborland Montessori School Buena Park is home to lively toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and elementary students that are not only intelligent, but also very well-rounded.
The Montessori school is composed of two campuses, one on Valencia Drive and another on Hughes Drive, both in the city of Fullerton. The Valencia campus, where Arborland traces its roots from, is a six-classroom expanse. The Hughes campus is nestled in the beautiful AmerigeHeights, and conveniently located near amenities like restaurants, groceries, and clothing stores. The Hughes campus has eight occupied classrooms, and also houses a pool, a tennis court, and large playgrounds. It is also home to the Arborland Education and Youth Activity Center.
Both campuses do not only offer school services, but also daycare and activities. Holiday childcare services are available at the Hughes campus as well. After-school programs such as study hall, tutoring, sports, dance, and art classes are also offered at the Activity Center.
The Montessori classes at Arborland are led by licensed teachers who are truly dedicated to the development of each child. With small class-sizes, it is easy for the teachers to monitor the improvement of individual children. This observation enables the teacher to create a personalized curriculum for each student, which benefits the child greatly. The child is given time to explore, to master, fundamental ideas before they are introduced to more complicated ones. Students are never hurried, as the lessons they receive are always given at their own pace. This leads to a thorough understanding of the ideas presented, and this provides an excellent foundation for future instruction.
A unique quality of the Arborland education is the three-year cycle, which allows the child to stay with the same teacher for three grade levels. This fosters a deep and beneficial relationship between the teacher and the student. When the student becomes accustomed to the teacher, it is easier for the child to learn. When the teacher becomes more acquainted with the child, it is much easier to adjust the curriculum that is more attuned to the child’s needs.
With the three-year cycle comes the concept of having three different grade levels in each classroom. This allows the children to relate to those who are of different ages, never seeing them as “others,” but as friends. The younger children see the older children as role models that they can emulate. The older children, on the other hand, enjoy helping the younger ones with whatever they might need. The result is a cohesive group with no room for discrimination. Arborland is, proudly, a “No Bully Zone,” where every child is free to be whatever they want to be. This gives the children more confidence to master their world.
Arborland Montessori School has been a second home to children for over 20 years, and with its growing number of successful alumni, it is not hard to see why. Visit Arborland today and let your child take their first step to success!
