B & K’s ExSeptional Ones Promotes Practical Life Skills through Montessori Teaching

B & K’s ExSeptional Ones Academy (@exseptionalones) continues to grow by the leaps and bounds! Lately, they have been having fun learning through Montessori methods of education. Montessori teaching encourages young children to develop natural interests and activities rather than use formal teaching methods. One of the academy’s recent activities has included an experience in the “kitchen,” where students practiced washing fruits and vegetables, making crumbs out of crushed crackers, and pouring cups of juice. Practicing tasks like this help children to gain confidence in their environment, and after these skills are refined, children can apply them in future purposeful work. These activities help children work on their control and coordination of movement, better concentrate, and give them a boost of self-esteem that comes with making a contribution to those around them.

B & K’s ExSeptional Ones Academy is a family-owned childhood education center located at 12717 S 28th Ave., STE D, in Bellevue. The academy teaches Montessori practical application and traditional early childhood learning through play. Owners Brian and Keana SeptMatthews created the academy out of a desire to make a difference in the lives of children in lower social economic statuses.
