Childtowne Montessori School Programs

Now offering Montessori philosophy from 7:00am to 6:00pm!

The Montessori Toddler / Pre-Primary Program is open to children aged 18 months to 3 years. Half-day (9:00am - 12:00pm), half-day plus lunch (9:00am - 1:00pm), and full day (9:00am - 3:00pm) classes are available for three, four, or five-day enrollment. This environment capitalizes on the young child’s interest in imitating the activities of adults while developing their ability to concentrate and enhancing motor skills and social abilities. There is a weekly Music class provided for these students. In addition, we foster a strong relationship with nature, by experiencing the outdoors in a variety of ways.

The Montessori Primary Program accepts students from 3 years of age (prior to September 1) through kindergarten. Half-day (9:00am - 12:00pm), half-day plus lunch (9:00am - 1:00pm), and full day (9:00am - 3:00pm) classes are available for three, four, or five-day enrollment (depending on availability).

The three-day program is limited to 3-year-old students only. Children turning 4 prior to September 1 attend five days. These multi-aged classes allow children to work with the Montessori materials following an individualized curriculum geared towards their interests and developmental stages.

In addition, bi-weekly Spanish class and weekly Music and Movement class enrich the primary program experience. We also work to foster a strong relationship with nature, by experiencing the outdoors in a variety of ways.

The Montessori Kindergarten Program is a full-day program open to those students eligible for Kindergarten in their home district who have been recommended by their preschool teacher regarding readiness. This year combines opportunity for the advanced Montessori curriculum along with traditional educational activities to prepare for a smooth transition to first grade.

Our Kindergarten is unique because it allows the children to step into a leadership role in their morning Montessori classroom and experience a more traditional, intimate, and rigorous afternoon. This schedule has proven successful because it provides a nice balance to the child’s day. Kindergarten students are also eligible for busing from the school district in which they live. In addition to Music and Spanish, a weekly private art class enriches the experience of the kindergarten students. Lastly, we also work to foster a strong relationship with nature, by incorporating the outdoors into the curriculum through a variety of ways.

Montessori Mindfulness is an exciting component of the full-day primary program. It is led by a Montessori trained teacher and applies Montessori philosophies to a fun and creative curriculum. This includes Yoga, Cooking, and a weekly Writers Workshop.

The remaining class time allows for additional opportunities to work with the Montessori materials, helping to support what children have been introduced to in their morning session and reinforcing what they know. Children who are 4 years of age, or recommended by their teacher, are eligible for this program.
