THE KENSINGTON SCHOOL

A 21ST CENTURY MONTESSORI

History

The Kensington School was developed by a group of educators and youth developers who saw the need for an Early Childhood Educaon Center in the Sugar Land-RichmondHouston area that would draw on the best pracces of Montessori educaon and would combine these pracces with a focus on 21st century skills and technology . We believe that this will prepare students to start elementary school with an edge and be prepared for college and careers of the future.

Our purpose

Too many of the childcare centers in the area miss out on all of the opportunies to nurture the intellectual, social, cognive, physical, and emoonal development of the children in their care. We feel that the Montessori approach is a proven and compelling model, but several elements of the Montessori approach need to be updated to the 21st century. Moreover, the Sugar LandRichmond area does not seem to have the rich offerings in a,er school and summer programming that involve more innovave learning which are common in areas such as Silicon Valley.

Why Us?

Early childhood development centers should prepare students for the educaon demands of the future — which will require crical thinking, collaboraon, creavity, and communicaon — so that no ma0er where your child goes to school, he or she will be prepared to excel academically. Finally, early childhood educaon centers should integrate technology and should constantly be integrang cung edge educaonal pracces, such as brain based learning. Between them, the group of educators and youth development specialists who currently constute the Board of The Kensington School have: four Masters degrees in teaching and educaon; three other advanced degrees in Management and Law, including from Ivy League schools; years of experience teaching Montessori, elementary, and high school; trained other teachers; developed curriculum for other childcare centers, youth programs, and for high school students; operated summer youth camps; and served as execuves with three youth-serving organizaons including the YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs. Nadia Remtulla, the Director of The Kensington School, is a part of the founding group, sits on the Board, and is the School’s Director.

What is the Montessori Method?

The Montessori method of educaon, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a childcentered educaonal approach based on scienfic observaons of children from birth to adulthood.

Dr. Montessori observed that children experience sensive periods, or windows of opportunity, as they grow. As these students develop, Montessori teachers match appropriate lessons and materials to these sensive periods when learning is most naturally absorbed and internalized. Montessori educaon offers children opportunies to develop their potenal so that they step out into the world as engaged, competent, responsible, and respec?ul cizens with an understanding and appreciaon that learning is for life. “Educaon is a natural process carri
