18 Months to 3 years
Our toddler program instructors are educated in the Montessori philosophy and methodology appropriate for infants and toddlers. Our programs foster the development of basic trust and facilitates the learning and development of each child's personality.
A key focus is on activities that promote motor exploration, motor activities, language, aural and oral expression, and musicality. As with all our classrooms, we provide an environment that encourages the child's spontaneous activity and which fosters the development of the creative process, integrated personality, and a strong sense of self.
The classroom environments emphasize a variety of interesting things to explore, experience, and look at; each designed to meet the development stages of the child. The curriculum has resources, materials, and activities that encourage exploration. We provide a flexible sequence of routines and activities that reinforce the rhythmic patterns of toddlers. Most of all, we provide an atmosphere that communicates love, acceptance and trust. Our toddler community classrooms have 12 students and two co-guides.
Aural & Oral Expression
Early Childhood and Private Kindergarten
3 to 6 years of age
Our classrooms have three year groupings of students and a schedule which provides for a consistent, dependable class routine having large blocks of uninterrupted work time. Our goal is to encourage the child's spontaneous activity and foster the development of the creative process, integrated personality, and a strong sense of self. We place a strong emphasis on practical life activities, literacy and language, math using concrete object, creative arts, science, and geography. Our curriculum includes materials and exercises that promote sensory-motor experiences. Each activity is structured to provide purpose, closure, and opportunities for success.
Each of our Early Childhood classrooms is led by two loving co-guides that are Montessori certified by a MACTE accredited organization. We have a wide array of beautiful materials for the children to utilize during their academic work cycle. Each class has 24 students ranging from 3-6 years of age
Literacy & Language
6 to 12 years of age
The Elementary Program, 1st–6th grade, is centered on children's desire to understand the universe and their place in it. Applying a research style of learning, Elementary students work in small groups on projects that spark the imagination and engage the intellect. Elementary studies include geography, biology, history, language, mathematics in all its branches, science, music, art, and physical education including sports and yoga. Our Elementary program is a dual-language Spanish and English program and features a custom curriculum tailored to our school and students. Immersion programs are highly effective because they use second language acquisition as the vehicle for learning the general education curriculum. This makes the content of the course inherently more interesting for the student and maximizes the instructional time by accomplishing two goals at once: language acquisition and content learning. The morning instructional time is Spanish immersion and the afternoon instructional time taught in English.
A child who has completed our Montessori elementary program will have developed competence in social, emotional, physical, and cognitive areas. By experiencing firsthand the value of working cooperatively in a community of trust, the student will have a strong sense of his/her place in the world, including respect and responsibility for self, community and the environment, and an understanding of the importance of creating a personal code of morals. She/he will have set the foundation for a lifelong love of learning, knowing that one may use both concrete information and one’s own imagination to explore the world. Through working with a wide array of stimulating learning materials as well as real-world experiences, the student will have honed the multidimensional skills necessary for succeeding in the 21st century, including critical thinking, the ability to communicate and work collaboratively, and the ability to think creatively across disciplines.
Exploration of each area is encouraged through trips outside the classroom to community resources, such as libraries, museums, and botanical gardens. This approach to education fosters a feeling of connectedness to humanity and encourages their natural desire to make contributions to the world.
The Elementary program hours are 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Extended care options are available.
