Montessori Program

We offer the Montessori program for children of ages 3 to 6 years. The program is centered around the understanding that each child is unique and develops at his/her own pace. The curriculum is personalized based on the individual child’s needs and the teachers spend 1:1 time with each child. In addition to our academic program, we develop the social, problem solving and critical thinking skills of children for a lifetime of success.

Our curriculum includes:

  • Practical Life: This area has activities designed to help children learn grace and courtesy and social skills. They learn how to care for themselves, the environment and others. Activities such as: how to pour and scoop, using kitchen utensils, food preparation, dishwashing, sweeping activities, washing their hands, and other self care practices. While participating in these activities the children are learning movement, concentration, muscular control, independence, and hand to eye coordination.
  • Sensorial& geometry: The materials in this area exposed children to different sensations including Sight, Hearing, Touch, Smell and Taste. This includes introduction to different geometric figures and shapes. All the sensorial materials help children define their environment more precisely by using observations.
  • Language: Children are exposed to phonics, recognizing the beginning sound and ending sound of words, sight words, blending sounds, and reading and writing. Our pre-language activity, such as patterning, sequencing, association and rhyming helps children achieve the goal. Hand-writing, using basic parts of speech and a rich vocabulary is taught on a constant basis.
  • Mathematics: Montessori math materials are designed to teach children the concepts and understanding of mathematics. Using hands-on materials they learn the symbols and quantities and move on to teens, tens hundreds and thousands. Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing are a peak point of their learning experience. They will understand math concepts much earlier than a traditional school allows.
  • Cultural &Science: Children learn about other cultures through stories, art, and classroom celebrations, as well as learning geography. They learn to understand the world around them through lessons about weather, animals, plants and different land and water forms. In Biology they study parts of the body and their function and nature life cycles. The children begin to understand about the natural world by observing and experimenting with the natural items that surround them in the classroom. They learn about life cycles, scientific methods, and most important to ask questions about their observations.
  • Art & music: Children are exposed to art material/lessons and are able to express their feelings and creativity in their own way. Their enjoyment is to complete their art and be proud of achieving that goal. We appreciate music by introducing the composer’s biography and listening to their music. Children experiment with tone, pitch, and rhythm as well as learning many songs for enjoyment. Music and movement incorporating it into our curriculum brings the work alive for children and enriches their experience greatly.
