A Childcare Center Where Children Can Learn, Play, and Grow
Our work at MMP School is very much in line with the vision of our founder, world-renowned early childhood expert and author, Beverly Kovach, MN. Ms. Kovach, author of Being with Babies and Toddlers, is one of two Pikler® certified teacher trainers and is a RIE® and a Montessori Mentor Teacher Instructor.
Initially a nurse and later a family counselor by profession (she co- founded the first crisis center in Charleston, SC), Beverly became increasingly dissatisfied with daycare options for her two young children. Her frustration quickly evolved into a passion for creating a better solution – a high quality approach to infant and childcare that meets the challenges of a group setting. And so the vision for MMP School was born.
In 1998, Beverly’s daughter, Nicole Vigliotti, and her husband David took over management and operations of the school, and further developed the infant and professional/parent training programs. Today, MMP School continues to house Little Learner’s Lodge (our infant program) and Montessori of Mount Pleasant (our primary program) as an independent private preschool, PLUS our center trains other early childhood educators in the Pikler ™, RIE™ and Montessori methods.
We are committed to continuing to grow, develop, and research best practices in supporting the well-being of young children and their providers.
