Our classroom is a warm, caring, multi-age community where children can make friends in a calm setting, develop their sense of independence, strengthen their ability to concentrate, and maintain their sense of wonder about the world.
Using specially constructed hands-on manipulative materials, the Montessori Curriculum covers several academic areas that are developmentally appropriate for the 2 1/2 - 6 year old child.
Our activities and routines are planned with a child’s sensitive periods and internal drives in mind. Children are allowed and encouraged to follow their inner voice. There are very few group activities in which all children are expected to perform in an identical manner. Children work independently at activities of their own choosing. Each activity is carefully designed with internal controls of error so the need for adult supervision and correction becomes minimal. This allows the children to develop at their own pace; it allows them to develop concentration, self-discipline, self-motivation and self-confidence.
The Montessori curriculum has several major areas of learning: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, and Sciences. There are also extracurricular activites such as art, yoga, music and movement, and Spanish. Learn more about each of these curricular areas by clicking on the tabs above.
