A new billingual Montessori program for pre-school children could open at the First Assembly of God Church (700 W. Braddock Road) in the Rosemont area.
Owner Flor Brea has filed an application with the city to open a program called Matteo Place Montessori Bilingual Preschool. According to the application, the program will teach children ages 2-6. The program is designed to teach up to 60 children with 10 employees.
“At Matteo Place Montessori Bilingual Preschool, our educational model is truly unique,” Brea said on the school website. “We use a blended learning approach — combining Montessori pedagogy with a Creative Curriculum — while teaching our children in English and Spanish to enhance their understanding of the world.”
Matteo Place Montessori Bilingual Preschool will use the First Assembly of God Church space during the week days.
The program is connected to Luca’s Rainbow, a similar program at 6335 Little River Turnpike in Lincolnia.
“Studies have shown that blended learning, used in many classrooms across the country today, can be an engaging and effective teaching approach for students from diverse backgrounds — including English learners and students with learning challenges who benefit from having the material presented in a variety of ways,” the website said.
