Montessori Inspired Classrooms
Lightheart Children's House
Our very own Montessori-Inspired piece of heaven.
Mary Lightheart, our classroom name sake, is our Montessori consultant and parent/teacher trainer! Thank you for your generous support in handing down traditions of the Montessori philosophy of honoring the light of children. We are blessed to have you in our community.
We are thrilled to make available some of the beautiful tactile lessons of the Montessori classroom to our homeschool families during our Network Day schedule and look forward to utilizing this classroom more throughout the week as we prepare for homeschool support classes for kindergarten to 3rd grade students.
We are seeking sponsors to help us outfit our classrooms with needed supplies to begin bringing the full benefits of the Montessori methods to our homeschool community.
At this time, our Montessori-inspired classroom is offered during our Network Day schedule for students ages 4-7, with applicable resources shared to our preschoolers and 2nd-3rd grade classrooms. Our HYBRID SCHOOL K-3 classroom utilizes this space on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Elmdale Baptist Church has offered a generous DEDICATED SPACE in their Education Annex located at 1705 Ross Ave, Springdale, AR just beside their main campus, to allow our classroom to expand. Amy Chiodo, under the mentorship of Mary Lightheart, works to train parents in using this space. We welcome and encourage parents to come and work alongside their child.
