At Twin Cities International Bilingual Montessori, we are passionate about supporting each child in his/her unique path of development through providing authentic Montessori education. We are committed to adhering to the highest Montessori standards set forth by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), established by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1929.
Our unique offering of combining authentic Montessori education with Chinese-English language immersion is the first in the state. The carefully prepared environment is staffed by AMI-certified guides (teachers in Montessori classrooms), and at least one of the adults in the environment speaks Chinese exclusively. This way, children are immersed in Chinese and English naturally throughout the day, rather than being taught Chinese in isolation as a curriculum subject, or receiving only a limited window of time with a Chinese speaker periodically. Such two-way immersion approach is aimed to capitalize on the brain’s powerful ability to acquire multiple languages with ease during the most optimal time (known as “the sensitive period”, or “the critical period” for language development).
It takes a village to raise a child. We understand that your child’s growth extends much beyond school, and we are here to support you. Together, we are building a community that fosters children’s love of learning, supports them in reaching their full potential, cultivates their respect for the Earth, and empowers them to become culturally well-versed global citizens.
Experiences in first years of life have a lifelong impact. Choosing the right education for your child is so important. We encourage you to carefully study, compare, and make an informed decision. You may find some helpful information in our FAQ section.
