Located off Old Shakopee Rd. and Normandale Blvd., our Bloomington Montessori academy location is perfectly located for convenience, yet simultaneously provides a beautiful space to enjoy nature and privacy. Our Bloomington location serves families from the south metro area including Savage, Burnsville, Bloomington, Eden Prairie, Shakopee, Edina, Richfield, and Hopkins.
Home to Peaceful Valley Montessori’s ONLY large greenhouse for exploring life cycles and nature year round, a true treat in a state that experiences such a long winter! This allows our children to plant, care for, and harvest vegetables throughout the entire year, an activity that provides each child an opportunity to further understand the beauty of nature during their formative years at Peaceful Valley Montessori Academy.
Newly re-modeled over the summer of 2018, the indoor environment at our Bloomington Montessori school consists of two Children’s House rooms, two Toddler rooms, and one infant room
Children’s Houses Primary Preschool Program (33 months to 6 years)
At Peaceful Valley Montessori Academy in Bloomington, we understand the curious nature of children. We provide students in our preschool program with an early childhood education that builds off of this innate characteristic and encourages their natural desire to learn by offering purposeful, self-directed activities that are both age-appropriate and fun. As such, each child is nurtured in a way that suits their age and their individual abilities, social maturity, and learning style. Parents love seeing their children flourish as they develop independence and self-confidence. Our Bloomington preschool program curriculum focuses on many developmental skills, including:
- Practical life application skills
- Sensory skills
- Language skills
- Using grace, courtesy, and consistency
- Learning Montessori method mathematics
Preschool program hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., including lunchtime, snack time, and naptime
Peaceful Valley Toddler Program (16 months to 33 months)
Toddlers have a different set of developmental needs from preschoolers, and we are passionate about providing them with an early educational environment that is specifically designed to ensure their needs are met. We provide a learning environment that provides the structure that toddlers need, but it is also one that is fun and flexible to accommodate our incredible learners.Much of our curriculum incorporates singing and physical movement in order to provide an atmosphere that is supportive, positive, and non-competitive.Thanks to the low teacher-child ratio we provide, you can be sure that your child is receiving plenty of individualized attention and that their behaviour and progress is being closely monitored. Our unique toddler program provides a unique learning environment that you won’t find elsewhere. It is simple and orderly, and the curriculum focuses on the following:
- Language development
- Skills for independence
- Skills for appropriate social interactions
All of the purposefully prepared environments are physically and psychologically designed for the children to move freely, choosing work that interests them and meets their developmental needs.
