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. We offer a wide range of programming that is designed to give your child the opportunity to learn through doing, and experimentation in an environment that fosters their ability to explore their own unique educational path.

As the first bilingual preschool in the Lee’s Summit area, we are proud to provide a range of affordable programming in a clean and caring environment delivered by certified Montessori teachers who are committed to providing your child with the unique support they need to thrive.

Preschool Programming

Montessori’s approach to education was grounded in what she observed to be four planes of human development. The first plane occurs between birth and six years of age and is characterized by dramatic physical and psychological development in the child. Montessori referred to the child’s ability to assimilate sensory and stimulus information from things such as language, sense, and cultural practices as being tied to them having an absorbent mind. Montessori believed the absorbent mind to be unique to this plane and an attribute that begins to fade around the age of six years old.

This analysis and understanding informs the classroom environment that we seek to create at Rainbow Montessori Learning Center, which is centered around providing opportunities to foster the following natural attributes of your child:

  • Sensory Refinement, which generally takes place from birth to approximately 4 years of age
  • Language Acquisition, which develops from birth to approximately 6 years of age
  • Order, which develops from 1 to 3 years of age
  • Interest in small objects, which develops from approximately 18 months to 3 years of age
  • Social behavior, which develops from approximately 2 ½ to 4 years of age
  • At Rainbow Montessori Learning Center, we provide this type of programming through activities such as sweeping, spooning, pouring, or washing up, along with other more traditional fields of education, such as mathematics, art, music, science, and language.

Summer Programming

In addition to providing educational services throughout the traditional school year, we also provide summer programming that is designed to help continue developing your child’s innate curiosity and love of learning and help prevent summer learning loss. During the summer months of programming, you child has numerous opportunities to continue investigating their natural areas of interest, and also have the chance to partake in informal play with peers, which is critical for developing interpersonal and social skills. They will also have opportunities to engage in guided creative activities, such as cooking, drama, gardening, arts and crafts, and more. Our goal is to help every child develop their innate, ultimate potential through high self-expectations in an environment that fosters self-motivated and intrinsic learning.
