Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center
Nestled in the nation’s capital, in the richest museum complex in the world, is the Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center (SEEC), an early childhood demonstration school that places children at the center of every experience. The vast collections of the Smithsonian are the foundation for the culturally diverse curriculum, which offers a rare opportunity for learning.
The children at SEEC learn about their world in an educational setting that is unparalleled. They are introduced to new ideas through personal conversations with scientists, artists, and cultural historians who share their passion for learning in concrete, engaging ways. SEEC children learn about the era of dinosaurs through personal encounters with paleontologists where they are able to see the tools used to examine the past. Kindergartners become ‘scientists’ in a visit to the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center where they explore nature intimately, make observations, test hypotheses, and discuss ideas with an entomologist. Throughout the year, SEEC children become familiar with people and cultures from around the world through the wondrous collections of the Smithsonian Institution and the various places around the DC community.

Julia Brown Schools – Columbia
At The Julia Brown Schools, we work with nature, not against it, in helping your child achieve his or her goal. Our program accepts the endless energies, the creative impulses, and insatiable curiosities of the children and gradually directs their efforts into rewarding channels.
Children have a strong natural desire to learn. This desire can best be nurtured by allowing the child to choose his or her own activities and to work at his or her own pace. No one can produce a better lesson schedule than the one produced by the child’s own interests. When they are ready for each step in their development, their enthusiasm for this part of the program is obvious. As an observer of oe of our classes you find the children choosing their own work and busily pursuing their goals. Our quiet, calm classrooms are due to the students preoccupation with their work.

Maria Montessori was a physician in Italy in the early 1900’s. The government was struggling with children being left at home during the day while their parents worked. Dr. Montessori had worked successfully with special needs children, so they asked her to establish a program to care for the children. Through careful observation and experimentation, Dr. Montessori learned what materials and activities engaged the children’s interest, appealing to their instinctive need to learn. Her goals were to meet their developmental needs, and to teach them practical skills, academic fundamentals, respect for others, and care of self and the environment.
