The Montessori Toddler/Pre-Primary Program is open to children ages 18 months through 3 years old. We offer a full day (9:00 – 3:00) program as well as a half-day (9:00 – 12:00) program.
The Pre-Primary Montessori environment capitalizes on the young child’s interest in imitating the activities of adults while developing their concentration, self-control and motor skills. The guides introduce the children to the carefully prepared environment and support them as they embark on their Montessori journey. Children receive lessons, learn how to complete a work cycle, develop social skills, and so much more. We strive to develop the “whole child” by providing guidance in all areas of the Montessori curriculum such as language, math, sensorial and culture. Our guides have perfected the delicate balance between freedom and limitations by providing just the right amount of structure and support during the child’s journey towards independence. In addition, we help to cultivate a strong relationship with nature by weaving the outdoors into daily lessons. This is an opportunity for our youngest learners to explore and discover the outside world.
Montessori Nap Program (1:00 – 3:00 pm) Nap is approached with the same philosophy as all our other programs. The children are viewed as individuals who take comfort in a variety of sleep techniques. Our nap guides begin to set the mood for rest time in advance and always create a peaceful atmosphere that helps the children naturally welcome sleep. We encourage all our young Montessori children to participate in nap. Every child benefits from a consistent sleep/rest schedule during this age of development. Those children who end their morning with an afternoon rest can return home at the end of the day feeling revitalized.
The Montessori Primary Program is open to students from 3 years of age (by September 1) through Kindergarten. The program is a full day (9:00 – 3:00), 5 day per week program.
The Primary Program is a three-year, full-time program for children ages three to six. We live our mission which is to truly “follow the child”. Regardless of age, the guide introduces lessons based on interest and individual readiness. The lessons begin with concrete experiences of varying concepts (whether it be shapes, the decimal system, or square root) and systematically move to the abstract.
The children’s day is balanced with a Mindfulness afternoon program (1:00 – 3:00 pm) that enriches and supports the Montessori experience with STEAM curriculum and private yoga class. This includes afternoons devoted to ingenuity, collaboration, experimentation, critical thinking and engineering. This magic occurs indoors and outdoors on our campus. We believe a strong relationship with nature is vital to developing the “whole child” and strive to incorporate the outdoors into every facet of the child’s school experience.
The Montessori Kindergarten Program is a full-day program open to those students eligible for Kindergarten. Children are considered as individuals and Kindergarten readiness is based on several variables, including social, emotional, and academic development.
This “capstone” year offers the opportunity to use advanced Montessori materials while still allowing time for exploration. Our class size is small, intimate, and provides a unique individualized experience. The Kindergarten year is especially important because it allows the children to step into a leadership role in their morning Montessori environment while experiencing a more collaborative and rigorous afternoon with their Kindergarten peers. We are committed to helping the child foster a strong relationship with nature, community, and self. Every year the children participate in outdoor studies while also embarking on in-depth studies of various cultures.
