PROGRAMS OVERVIEW

Our programs encompass the philosophies of Maria Montessori to

provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment to help

children develop an excellent foundation for creative learning.

 

The learning materials and programmed activities are geared

to help the children foster:

  • curiosity

  • a love of learning

  • satisfaction

  • self-confidence

  • concentration

  • initiative

  • persistence.

 

The structured environment fosters inner security and a sense of order in the children, while allowing them the freedom to develop their creative intelligence and imagination.

 

The Montessori curriculum looks at the Pre-Primary (toddlers and twos) program as a child between eighteen and thirty-six months. It is a period characterized by the need to explore everything, move and develop large motor co-ordination and strength. We believe at this age there is a huge expansion into language. The Montessori toddler develops the capacity to create symbols, images, and concepts, and becomes aware of him/herself as a separate and independent person.

 

The Montessori Primary program is a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of the child's sensitive years between three and six when s/he can develop an early enthusiasm for learning.  This is the key to becoming a truly educated person. Emphasis is placed on the development of sensory/motor skills, awareness of the physical environment, and social development in non-competitive surroundings. Once the child begins the program, it is expected that s/he will continue at least through the kindergarten year.
