How Preschools Differ from Daycare Centers

Rockville daycares and preschools both provide childcare, but with different guiding philosophies. Preschools are more learning-oriented and help promote your child’s development beyond just looking after his or her well-being. While Rockville area daycares offer childcare and socialization, preschools offer that and more. Great preschool programs have a thorough curriculum that helps children develop their basic attitudes and values about life and learning. The goal of our Rockville preschool is to help your child grow, discover, learn, and to develop the skills needed to be successful in their school-age years and beyond.

The Norbeck Montessori Difference

When it comes to early childhood education, Norbeck Montessori takes it a step further than traditional preschools. We go beyond simple before and after care and help mold your child’s natural curiosity and love of learning. Here in Rockville, we go beyond simple childcare and instruct children in the areas of Practical Life skills, Language Arts, Mathematics, History, Geography, and so much more.

Not only do children get to develop social skills with children both older and younger, but our preschool and kindergarten students learn independence and coordination through an individualized learning plan specific to their needs. We provide a safe, loving, nurturing environment for your child to be a positive influence on the development of positive attitudes in learning and life!

Rockville Preschool or Daycare: How to Choose

Here in Montgomery County, you have a lot of choices when it comes to childcare and early childhood education. When evaluating your options, be sure to consider:

At our Rockville preschool and Kindergarten, we offer a discovery-based Montessori curriculum where the lessons build upon the individual skills and knowledge children acquire at each level. Our wholistic learning approach offers structure without strict drill-and-practice teaching, which develops a love of learning.
  • Licenses and accreditation. The state of Maryland recognizes Norbeck Montessori as a private Montessori school. The instructional program of Norbeck Montessori is fully accredited by the Maryland State Board of Education and the child care program is licensed by the Maryland Office of Child Care.
  • All of our Rockville Montessori teachers have Bachelor’s degrees and have received the Montessori Credential from an accredited Montessori Institute and have been carefully selected for their warm, nurturing temperaments.
