Early Childhood Program
The Montessori curriculum is designed to accommodate various stages of development in children, which occur in roughly three-year cycles. During the time from three to six years of age, the child reaches a stage in which repetition and manipulation of the environment is critical to the development of concentration, coordination, independence, and a sense of order. The child learns skills for everyday living: sorting, grading, classifying- all of which lead to the development of writing, reading, and a mathematical mind.
Under the direction of certified and trained Montessori teachers, learning is individualized and self-paced. Our beautiful, light-filled Montessori classrooms are a comfortable and stimulating environment for 8 to 9 children ages 3 to 6. Each primary classroom has a lead Montessori-trained teacher along with an assistant teacher. Each classroom activity is executed from beginning to end with careful attention to the accuracy of sequence and process. The classroom contains six interrelated sets of materials.
