Our Little Story

  • About Rainbow Montessori

    As the first bilingual Montessori preschool in the Lee’s Summit area, Rainbow Montessori Learning Center proudly provides a safe, caring, homelike environment for your child that promotes their intellectual, physical, emotional, and social needs. Our academic environment is designed to engage your child in thoughtful pursuits and encourage a lifelong love of learning. Our classrooms are also structured in a manner where our teachers (or “guides”) provide assistance to help your child learn in an intrinsically motivated fashion. Our goal is to help every child develop their innate and ultimate potential in an environment that fosters self-motivated and intrinsic learning.

  • What is Montessori Education?

    The Montessori Method is a pedagogical philosophy designed around helping students develop mastery, proficiency, and understanding of subject materials through their own will, effort, and self-guided activities. Because we believe in the importance of instilling agency in learners, our teachers are referred to as “directors” or “guides.” We consider their primary role to be that of facilitators who guide your child in their learning process without excessive intervention. In taking this approach, students are better able to develop attitudinal skills like self-reliance, personal responsibility, and critical thinking skills.

    At Rainbow Montessori Learning Center, we are committed to creating a learning environment that is free of negative input and centered around success-oriented, self-teaching, self-correcting educational experiences. Your child will have the opportunity to learn through doing and enjoy the experience of experimentation in an environment that fosters their ability to find purpose and explore their own unique educational path. Unlike conventional approaches to education that focus on mass production or memorization of content, at Rainbow Montessori Learning Center, your child learns by doing and is guided in their educational journey, rather than directed by a one-size-fits-all curriculum.

  • Offering Children Unique Opportunities

    At Rainbow Montessori Learning Center, we are proud to provide your child with unique opportunities to develop their potential, and to develop into responsible, competent, and engaged citizens with a lifelong love of learning.

    There are several unique qualities to the Montessori method of learning, including but not limited to the following:

    • Each child is unique. At Rainbow Montessori Learning Center, we recognize that every child learns differently. As such, we provide an environment that allows for students to learn at their own pace and advance through curriculum as they are ready, being guided along the way by our staff who have an individualized plan for your child.
    • Emphasis on self-regulation. Beginning as toddlers, all the way through adolescence, our classrooms are designed to help students learn to teach themselves, and in so doing, allow them to develop improved independence, concentration, coordination, and sense of order.
    • Multi-age classroom. One of the most distinct aspects of Montessori education is that classrooms typically have an age range of three years, and is modeled after a family structure. Within this multi-age environment, older students act as mentors, which helps improve younger students feeling supported, which in turn improves their confidence and competency in dealing with challenges.
    • Emphasis on self-assessment and self-correction. As students at Rainbow Montessori Learning Center mature, they are encouraged and given consistent opportunities to reflect critically on their own work and develop self-correction techniques, such as identifying, addressing, and learning from mistakes or errors.
