Randazzo has fashioned a stunning breakthrough by showing
us how children truly learn and grow…a compelling guide
for every parent, every teacher -- everyone who works with
young children." - John W. Lorton, Professor (ret.),

The "make-it or break-it" years
in every child's developmental life -- birth to age 6. During
that brief precious time, a child's future achievement is
most at-risk, for only with proper intellectual stimulation
will the brain fully develop. It's for that purpose that the Montessori Smart-Start System was developed -- a
high quality, early literacy and school readiness program
that provides a commonsense and comprehensive program of early
Smart-Start gives parents the
tools, methods and educational toys they need to become their
child's first and best teachers, with a complete family
learning center -- all
in the warmth, safety and security of the home.
The ABCs of our System
Based upon the pioneering traditions of
Maria Montessori -- whose educational practices revolutionized
the teaching of young children worldwide -- Smart-Start has
extended, redefined, and revalidated the Montessori method
based on the latest breakthroughs in neurobiology, psychology,
and learning theory.
The "Smart-Start" program recognizes
the existence of "multi-intelligences" in every
child -- such as verbal, visual/spatial, social/emotional,
musical and math/logic -- and addresses each through parent-directed
activities and a variety of learning styles, not just the
common and limited verbal mode. And, Smart-Start has identified
the precise factors that enable every child to succeed, and
has created activities through which parents can promote learning
-- activities that develop
the child's many intelligences.
Additionally, since certain "needs" may
predominate and require more attention during a child's normal
development, Smart-Start materials and toys are specifically "child-paced"
to coincide with the biological "windows of opportunity"
in each child's growth, year by year.
"The newborn's brain is like a sponge -- it has millions of neurons that require constant stimulation... from the very instant of birth. Through proper age-appropriate activities, the infant is not only exercising her brain, she's creating new brain cells... growing her own 'intelligences' with each well -- modulated interaction in her environment." -- Dr. Joseph Randazzo
