In our Primary classroom we foster the process of self-creation by providing an environment in which each child can develop independently at his or her own pace while still gaining those social, physical, intellectual and emotional skills needed to develop to his/her full potential. Our environment is designed to provide the child the opportunity to interact with as many aspects of the world as possible (at their own level). The children learn through doing, experiencing the joy of individual discovery and mastery. An essential aspect of Montessori Education and IMSchools mission is developing awareness of the interrelatedness of all life and humanity’s responsibilities toward it. To this end we have created rich cultural, science and geography areas and materials in addition to our didactic Montessori materials. Our Primary students also participate in a peace education program, learning to listen actively, communicate positively, and create compromise and solutions.
Students are required to be 3 years old as of September 1st of the Academic year they are joining, and fully toilet-trained to enter this program.
International Montessori Royersford is an incredible place, which has enhanced the development of our child beyond our expectations. The care and attention to each student's emotional and educational needs are evident on a daily basis. The staff made the transition into a new school seamless for our family and we're so thankful to be a part of the IM community.
My daughter has been attending International Montessori of Royersford for about a year. I am very happy with the school. I have seen a good amount of growth in my daughter since she has been attending. I really trust and like the teachers, they all have a very soft touch with the children. My daughter had to transition from the infant room to the pre-primary room and the teachers and school are working well with her and provide updates on her development in her new room. I highly recommend the school.
This is not a daycare! The school and materials are new and top quality. The staff at this school are beyond amazing. I enrolled both my 3 yr old and 12 month old sons when the school first opened. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the care for our children. All the teachers have been very calm, supportive, and engaging. My previous experience with other Montessori schools and daycares has been that teachers didn't connect with the children consistently, instead they spend the day shuffling kids around the classroom throughout the day. That was not our experience at IMS Royersford. There was not a time when we picked our children up and the teacher/guide was not fully engaged. I don't believe this was just because of the small classroom size. These teachers/guide truly love exploring and engaging with their students. The difference was huge with my 3 now 4 year old. He advanced tremendously in such a short period of time. Reading, geography, and adding 3-digit numbers before his 4 birthday. My now 19 month old is extremely curious, independent, and showing significant developmental advancement. By far, the best decision we have made as parents!
