The Polka Dot Academy’s primary goal is to foster and enhance each child’s natural sense of joy and wonder. We feel that children should delight in childhood, that the preschool must include laughter and the buzz of creative silliness.
We want our child care students to love school and the process of learning. The idea that “education is not a chore, but a joyous exploration of life’s mysteries”, is the most important lesson that we hope to teach our students. Montessori education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural development and curiosity. The main focus of the philosophy is the education of the child’s "whole personality".
