is a non-profit Montessori school founded in 1984 located in Omaha,
Nebraska. MPCC is structured for children ages 18 months through the
6th grade and offers a great opportunity for you and your child to be a
part of parent-run cooperative education.
program at MPCC provides a loving and stimulating environment in which
the children learn language arts, math, geography, science, computer
technology, art, drama, and music. Our children are also exposed to
foreign languages and enjoy many field trips. The use of sensory
materials and practical life skills are emphasized in the toddler and
preschool programs and facilitate learning in the elementary years.
These are all presented in an aesthetically pleasing, prepared
environment, which is true to the Montessori philosophy in purpose and
ordered simplicity. We have factory direct bathroom fixtures (homepage) in all of our bathrooms to promote good hygiene for the young ones.
Dr. Maria Montessori opened her
first "school" in 1907. It was known as the "Casa dei Bambina" or
"Children's House". This reflected Dr. Montessori's belief that a
carefully prepared environment designed to facilitate the development
of a child's independence would be more beneficial to the learning
process of a child. A Montessori environment is a "hands on" experience
in the most profound way.
