Revolutionary Montessori Preschool Opens in Peoria, Arizona
Pioneering Concepts Advance Montessori Preschool Education
PEORIA, AZ, October 6, 2008 – Black Mountain Science Academy, Inc, a Montessori Preschool, announced the opening of its first preschool in October 2008. Operating on a traditional time tested Montessori platform, the preschool creates scientific awareness in its students through concepts, scientific equipment, imagery and kid friendly laboratory experiments or demonstrations.
“We are proud to have the new school open and ready for students,” stated Barbara Bolin, CEO and founder of Black Mountain Science Academy. “In recent years, the scientific workforce in Arizona has seen a significant decline. We believe that our teaching concepts will help stimulate the sciences in young minds.”
The Montessori teaching method is designed to help each child reach their full potential in all areas of life. Children possess an unusual intellectual ability to absorb and learn from their environment that is unlike that of the adult. This characteristic, often referred to an unconscious learning, is most prevalent during the first six years of life.
Rebecca Grim, the preschools director, stated, “Our preschool offers a new and fresh approach to early age education that we hope will evolve into an industry standard. I am very excited to be a part of this dynamic team.”
About Black Mountain Science Academy
Black Mountain Science Academy is the creation of it’s Chief Executive, Barbara Sue Bolin, a certified Montessori Instructor, a mother of two successful Montessori graduates, and a respected scientist with over 45 years of experience. Over the course of her career, Barbara’s technical excellence and contributions to the scientific process have been the foundation for diagnostic tests, vaccines, and the early adoption of technology.
In response to the anthrax bioterrorism attacks in late 2001, Barbara lead the rapid development of BTOX Analytical Laboratories, a Phoenix based bioterrorism testing facility and one of the few private testing labs capable of offering a complete line of laboratory services for bioterrorism agents.
At the local level, Barbara was the first scientist to isolate and report the presence of the rare and deadly amoeba, Naegleria fowleri, from Arizona water supplies, which tragically struck the Northwest valley in 2002. Incidents of Naegleria fowleri are extremely rare in the United States and as such there are very few people in the nation that are qualified to identify this organism. Drawing on her experiences and investigative techniques, Barbara was able to develop the expertise to make the accurate diagnosis, thus allowing proper water treatment and protection of the community against further cases of Naegleria fowleri.
