Brilliant Kids Montessori Preschool / Kindergarten / Elementary / Middle School in Encinitas

Explore your child's fullest potential through the Montessori philosophy of education. Watch as your child grows intellectually and socially through this structured program. Program covers practical life, sensorial, language, math, botany, zoology, geography, art and music are all taught in a creative and fun way that your child will enjoy. Your child's positive learning experience is very important to us and each child is free to excel to their highest potential in this program through the nurturing of passion and interests.

The Montessori school classroom offers individualized curriuculum for ages 3 - 14 . Children select their work from among self-correcting materials displayed on open shelves in specific work areas.

Over a period of time, the children develop into a “normalized community,” working with high concentration and few interruptions. Normalization is the process whereby a child moves from being undisciplined to self-disciplined, from disordered to ordered, from distracted to focused, through work in the environment. The process occurs through repeated work with materials that captivate the child’s attention. For some children this inner change may take place quite suddenly, leading into deep concentration. In the Montessori school, the manipulative are viewed as “materials for development.”

Educational field trips are scheduled for the children to participate, and parents are welcome to join us. Because of the smaller teacher/student ratio, more individual attention is given to each child. Children in this Montessori program have an opportunity to progress in their own pace developmentally. They can advance in their own comfortable pace, every child is unique.

Graduates of Brilliant Kids Montessori School have been admitted to prestigious schools such as The Bishop's School, Del Mar Pines School, Diegueno Country School, Rancho Encinitas Academy, Rhoades School, Santa Fe Christian School, Pacific Ridge School, and more.

The school facility is licensed by the State of California. All teachers are CPR/First Aid Certified.
