PRESCHOOL (3 TO 5 YEARS)
The curriculum is a hands-on one and includes large and small motor activities, sensorial activities, practical life activities, creative and dramatic play, language development, pre-writing skills, mathematical concepts, science, music and art activities. Schedules are designed around the children’s needs, balancing indoor and outdoor play, group and individual lessons, stories and cultural activities. Small class size provides children with one-on-one teaching opportunities.
Fine Arts teachers provide Orff music and the Monart style of drawing. Our foreign language teacher provides a hands-on Spanish curriculum. Students in a Montessori classroom have the freedom to make their own work choices with guidance from the teacher.
Kindergarten Program (Almost 5 to 6 Years)
Children begin to make the gradual passage from concrete, hands-on learning to a degree of pencil-and-paper abstraction. Materials in this program extend to second-grade level. The curriculum is also continuously enhanced through didactic materials.
Our Kindergarten Curriculum Includes:
- Creative Writing
- Practical Life Skills
- Cultural Geography & History
- Physical Education
Elementary Program (1st to 4th Grade)
The goal of our Montessori elementary curriculum is to educate the child for life. We integrate skills in mathematics, language, arts and crafts, physical education, and music with cultural subjects. Elementary-aged children move from an understanding of the physical world to an understanding of abstract concepts. Montessori provides diverse, creative passages to abstraction.
Elementary Curriculum Areas:
- Language: Reading, Creative Writing, Spelling, Punctuation, Grammar, Sentence Analysis, & Cursive Writing
- Arts & Sciences: Anthropology, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Geology, History, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, & Zoology
- Math: 3-D, Manipulative Math Materials Provide a Concrete Way to Experience an Abstract Concept
- Special Programs: Music, Art, Drama, Fitness, Conflict Resolution, & Time Management
