About Us
Miss Pattie's Place Miss Pattie’s Place is a small, cheerful, home-like Montessori Preschool-Day Care nestled in the heart of the Lewisville community that offers an “extension of home” feeling. Children from birth to approximately six years of age experience a loving, supportive, non-aggressive child-centered environment. Since 1989, Patricia Malone, Director-Owner, has been providing exceptional child care at 549 Surf Street, just south of Main street and west of the intersection of I-35 and Main street.
On entering Miss Pattie’s Place, one immediately notices how cheerful, clean and “homey” the preschool and day care is. The feeling of “community” or “family” is further fostered by guiding the students in Dr. Maria Montessori’s Practical Life skills, e.g. folding their blankets, correctly washing their hands, zipping, buttoning, tying, feeding themselves, carrying their lunch trays, selecting their works, etc. Practical Life Skills begin around 18 months.
Miss Pattie's Place Students are encouraged to learn at their individual pace and to make independent decisions within the school’s ground rules. By progressing at their own pace, students feel comfortable. Students feel free and experience the joy learning provides. Thus, emphasis on “individuality” versus “group conformity” makes each student feel special and supported.
Malone states that to enable Miss Pattie’s Place to meet the needs of the students, a close relationship between the home and school must exist. Family-clients tend to be long-term and allow students to form long-lasting relationships. Around three years of age, students become involved with sensorial materials, language, development and sciences on an individual basis on his/her developmental level. Students are guided toward understanding their responsibilities in their environment, and developing problem-solving capabilities.
