MONTESSORI CHRISTIAN PRE-SCHOOL MINISTRY


Christian Montessori Pre-School Ministry/Montessori Korean School Ministry

1. The core curriculum is based on teaching children a Christian world view.
2. The basic philosophy of Montessori education is learning through five sensory experiences (touch, taste, sight, hearing and smell).
3. This program recruits, educates and trains local teachers so they learn the basic Christian Montessori education and can then continue to develop culturally appropriate education in their own native language.
4. Local children are educated in knowledge, leading with discernment, self-confidence, self-esteem, able to learn by themselves, and sharing with others. They are taught the foundational principles of Christianity to become strong followers of Jesus Christ. 
5. Teachers are trained in setting up the class with the curriculum and teaching materials so they are culturally relevant and educationally appropriate for their geographic location.
6. Volunteers are needed in making teaching materials, such as making alphabet letters to see, feel, and touch. Local teachers can further develop materials that are culturally and environmentally appropriate.
7. This Gospel oriented education in early childhood makes a tremendous impact in developing strong leaders. It’s also very effective in restricted countries where evangelism is prohibited, as well as in all mission fields. We recommend churches in the U.S. have a day care ministry using the Christian Montessori School method, especially for ethnic outreach evangelism. Christian Montessori School (Nursery-school/Day Care) is a great tool in the evangelism of children.


Montessori Korean School Ministry 

This ministry teaches the Korean language by using Montessori’s unique teaching methods, such as phonics and learning through the five sensory experiences of touch, taste, sight, hearing and smell. Many developing countries are interested in learning the Korean language and learning it through the Montessori method is much easier and provides great interest.  As they learn Korean, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is also shared.
