Babies Like Mirrors – According to the American Academy of Pediatrics findings, babies love faces! Babies especially love the faces of their parents and caregivers, but they also enjoy seeing all types of faces whether they are in books, faces of friendly visitors, or you guessed it – in the mirror! All infant classrooms at ExcellED Montessori have mirrors. A low mirror can be used by a baby to explore and develop concentration. This mirror helps a baby get a new perspective on his or her surroundings. It also helps babies to concentrate on their own movements, and eventually to coordinate them.

At Excelled Montessori Preschool Daycare our goal is to grow lifelong learners who have the knowledge, creativity, and the 21st-century learning skills to excel in a world that is constantly changing. At ExcellED Montessori Plus, we take the Montessori model a step further by blending other project-based and team-based approaches like Reggio Emilia to develop the next generation of leaders. Our whole-child approach to learning includes creating a supportive environment and community where parents, children, and educators are viewed as partners throughout the learning process.
All children do not learn the same way and at the same pace. At ExcellED Schools, our goal is to leverage research-based instructional strategies to personalize learning for each student based on their learning styles, needs, and pace. Students play an essential role in their learning, and our goal is to provide them with age-appropriate developmental tools and a safe environment.
