Curriculum

The Montessori curriculum is highly individualized. Most lessons are given one-on-one, taking into account each child's current level of development, and learning style.

Lessons are given in each of the following five areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, and Science and Culture.

Small group lessons are also given when appropriate.

The child's Kindergarten or third year is a culmination of the lessons introduced during the first two years in the classroom. Upon completion of the Primary program, children will leave having become proficient readers and writers, with an extraordinary ability to problem solve, and think critically.

A Typical Day..

The Montessori classroom prides itself on providing a highly structured and consistent environment. Upon entering the classroom, each child is greeted with a smile, a handshake and "good morning".

The class will have a small meeting, or circle time, immediately followed by morning work cycle.

At mid day the children spend time outside playing, running, and tending to the school's garden and fruit trees.

The afternoon session consists of the children's favorite social time, lunch, followed by nap or a second work cycle.

A kindergartner's day consists of two work cycles

 

Infant Program (6wk - 18mo)

Available Schedules

The infant program is designed with working parents in mind, so we offer care Monday through Friday,  beginning at 7:00am until 5:30 pm. Pick up and drop off times can be adjusted to fit your specific needs. You are also welcome to choose a part time schedule with 2, 3, or 4 days of care if you wish.

Curriculum

The Montessori program at the infant level is about creating an individualized plan tailored to their specific developmental needs. We offer a sensory rich environment to meet their sensorial and tactile needs, and we begin to introduce language cards, various materials, and practical life items. We pride ourselves on offering a loving warm environment that truly feels like a home away from home.

A Typical Day...

An infants needs change rapidly, and we excel at communicating with mom and dad to find the best schedule for baby. Babies require both flexibility and consistency from their caregivers, and we are happy to offer that, plus warmth and affection to tend to their emotional needs as well as their physical ones.
