Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Castle Rock Preschool bases its curriculum on the Montessori Philosophy allowing each child to develop at his/her own individual rate. The curriculum consists of learning materials that are intensely fascinating and absorbing to young children and stimulate them into logical thought and discovery.
Practical Life - refinement of small motor skills, development of concentration and independence
Sensorial - the discrimination and refinement of the five senses
Mathematics - from simple counting and quantifying to working with place value
Language - the journey or pre-reading through phonetic sounds and their names, writing and storytelling
Culture - through art, drama and music the child develops an open mindedness
Science/Geography - the whole child begins to understand his/her universe "
