As the children enter their classrooms and discover enticing materials, they have the freedom to choose their own activities under the guidance of a Montessori-trained teacher. The Montessori hands on materials cultivate concentration, independence and a love of learning. While independent learning is emphasized to allow a child to grow at their own pace, a healthy emphasis is given to the development of social skills to foster empathy, respect and communication.
Our Early Childhood/Kindergarten Program is offered in three buildings all set in park like settings surrounded by evergreen and maple trees which form a beautiful background to our classrooms and outdoor play areas. Each of our 10 classrooms accommodate children ages two years nine months up to age six, this 3+ year age span is consistent with Montessori philosophy. Classroom enrollment varies from 20-26 children with 2-3 teachers present.
