Preschool

Our Young Pre classroom is for ages 2+. This age group is working on developing their fine and gross motor skills, that are gaining independence, and developing their social skills through play.

Practical Life

Practical Life activities are the bridge between home and school and aids in preparing the child for all other areas of learning. Practical Life exercises give children the opportunity to further their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, hand strength, balance, concentration, and ability to do things for themselves. An important aspect of exercises in Practical Life are the lessons of grace and courtesy. In this, the children work on their interactions with other people.

Sensorial

Young children are sensorial explorers, eager to touch, see, smell, and listen to everything around them. In the sensorial curriculum, children work with materials that help them provide internal order, as well as the basis for developing other skills necessary to the development of math, language, and science.

Mathematics

The math curriculum utilizes concrete materials to teach the basics of mathematics without reliance on rote memorization. Concrete materials are used to introduce mathematical concepts in the Montessori classroom. Children build their abstract mathematical reasoning skills on these early concrete experiences. They learn how a numeral represents an amount. They manipulate objects to see concretely operations like addition and subtraction.

Language

The Montessori classroom is designed in such a way that all activities gear themselves naturally toward the development of the skills required for oral and written language and reading. Language development is also encouraged in the classroom because of the freedom of conversation allowed to the children. In the Montessori environment encouragement of self-expression is fostered through communication between children and their peers and children and adults.

Culture

The child has one intuitive aim: self development. He desperately wants to develop his resources, his ability to cope with a strange, complex world. He wants to do and see and learn for himself through his senses and not through the eyes of an adult. He becomes a full person. He is educated.”
