Park Spanish Immersion Connection
Our Saint Louis Park Preschool is an excellent choice for parents sending their children to Park Spanish Immersion School. Our Saint Louis Park Preschool has been serving children from Park Spanish Immersion since 2004. Parents can have their children at Park Spanish Immersion Kindergarten for part day and spend the rest of the day at Arise and Shine Montessori, thus facilitating foundational language skills in both English and Spanish.
Our Saint Louis Park preschool offers a rich full day kindergarten. We also offer half day kindergarten programs and are on the bus routes for Park Spanish Immersion School and Aquila Elementary School. Many Parents will send their child to the morning public school kindergarten and then have their child bussed to Arise and Shine Montessori for the afternoon.
Child Friendly Classrooms
Our Minneapolis child care has a mixed-age classroom and a smaller sized classroom which models the real world environment. This provides an opportunity for optimum child interactions and learning social skills.
Our Arise and Shine Montessori Minneapolis preschool is conveniently located to help with your morning commute. We are located 1/4 mile from Louisiana Ave. and highway 394. Our Minneapolis daycare component helps to accommodate your work schedule with our after school schedule.
Our Minneapolis Montessori teaching is a holistic educational philosophy based upon the child's stages of development and naturally occurring tendencies of learning, as they relate to the child's interaction with the environment.
We believe that children learn best by doing self-directed, purposeful activities that are engaged in with joy. We seek to foster each student's unique strengths, while guiding them through those areas where they are challenged.
Our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child, academically and socially, to nurture the innate love of learning and to inspire each child to explore his true potential.
