  • (1888PressRelease) March 18, 2020 - Chalfont, PA: Abacus Montessori Academy is a Montessori preschool and childcare center based in Chalfont, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. As one of the major childcare centers in Chalfont, it serves residents in New Britain, Doylestown, Montgomeryville, Lansdale, Perkasie, Warrington, Quakertown, North Wales, and other surrounding areas in Bucks and Montgomery County.

    The education system at Abacus Montessori Academy incorporates the Whole Child approach. As the name suggests, this approach focuses on developing all the different abilities children need—cognitive, emotional, social, and physical.

    According to the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD), the Whole Child approach involves policies, practices, and relationships that address children’s social-emotional wellness and critical thinking; innovative instructional strategies and higher levels of interaction and engagement; and raises concerns regarding the status quo in school culture.

    A spokesperson for the childcare center said, “A Montessori education operates on a child-centric, community-building philosophy. By incorporating the Whole Child Approach in our education system, children learn to develop skills and abilities that prioritize long-term success over short-term achievement. Research shows that children who receive a Montessori education develop skills that foster academic, social, and emotional success later on in their lives.”

    Some of the defining characteristics of the Whole Child approach include instilling a sense of community within children who come from various backgrounds, as they work together to solve problems; encouraging them to actively seek knowledge as opposed to rote memorization; and fostering decision-making skills, independence, and coordination.

    The spokesperson added, “A Montessori setup provides children an environment that is conducive to develop self-reliance, self-regulation, and self-discipline. Children are encouraged to actively satisfy their curiosities and discover answers to their questions themselves. As they grow and come into their own, children develop the tools they need to assess and intelligently criticize their own work.”

    Abacus Montessori Academy considers its teachers to be "one-on-one coaches." They are trained to provide children an environment that stimulates and facilitates their own learning, while guiding them towards conflict resolution every step of the way.
    By blending teacher-directed lessons with Montessori learning, the preschool better prepares its students for the transition to elementary schools.
