Adventures in Montessori Early Childhood Center is opening soon in Jamaica Plain.
The beautifully built center, located at 65 Rockwood St. on the South Brookline-Jamaica Plain line, has been created for the communities of Jamaica Plain, Brookline, Roslindale, Newton, and other neighborhoods of Boston, according to Professor Theodora Koziol, creative consultant, and her extraordinary professional team who designed and put the school together.
The single-story center, built in a bucolic setting, is designed for children, ages three months to six years old.
Koziol said the school’s curriculum, “in true Montessori philosophy” is: respect yourself, respect others, and especially respect our environment.
She added that other features of the school’s curriculum will be “save the environment, the study of the wild species in the ocean and on earth, and recycling.”
There will also be a fine arts program and lessons in tap dancing and musical instruments. The school will be trilingual with classes in English, Mandarin, and French.
The center will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and classrooms will be divided among different groups: infant, transitional infant toddler, toddler, primary, and transitional toddler primary.
Professor Koziol said a professional and nurturing staff will comprise the faculty. The director of the school will be Francesca Ephraim, a very accomplished and professional educator.
The school has scheduled open houses over the next few weeks. On Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., there will be activities for the families and children: face painting and balloon twisting. “We welcome families from all our neighboring communities and hope they’ll attend our open houses,” said Professor Koziol.
