Our Program

We apply the Montessori philosophy and method to prepare our children for success in formal education, but beyond that for a lifetime of learning and creative thinking. We help our children to develop confidence, competence, creativity, social skills and eagerness to learn. Our curriculum consists of the 5 areas of Montessori education integrated for the total development of your child.

Practical Life

Practical Life exercises motivate and enable children to care for themselves, for others, and for their environment. Activities include many tasks which children see as part of daily life: washing dishes, scrubbing tables, sweeping floors, preparing and serving food, buttoning shirts, tying shoelaces, folding clothes, dusting, arranging flowers, etc. Elements of social interaction are introduced with the exercises of grace and courtesy. Through these and other activities, children develop both large and small-muscle coordination, and learn to explore their surroundings. They learn to work at a task from beginning to end, and develop their will, their self discipline, and their capacity for concentration.

Sensorial

Children learn from and absorb the world around them through their five senses. Maria Montessori developed activities which enable children to increase their sensorial capability, including discerning similarities and differences, and grading objects by their qualities, such as sounds, textures, weights, dimensions, colors, and shapes.

Language

The child’s ability to acquire language is explosive in the early years. Montessori schools help children expand auditory, speaking, and writing language skills. Children are taught sounds of letters through touch, sound, and sight, and this phonetic knowledge is the foundation of the Montessori reading and writing program. Grammar and creative writing are also taught. Children not only learn to read early, but they develop a love of reading which is invaluable to future learning.

Mathematics

Montessori mathematics begins with quantities and numeration which the child learns from handling and manipulating beautifully designed materials. This leads to the fundamentals of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, and the understanding of the number system. The child works with concrete objects as his capacity for abstraction gradually develops.

Cultural

Cultural education enriches the children's understanding of all aspects of the world in which they live. It includes science, geography, history, music, arts, and crafts.
