General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Our preschool and kindergarten programs offer a solid foundation for future learning by providing balanced educational activities offered in carefully prepared learning environments under the supervision of trained and experienced Montessori primary teachers.
Montessori prepared environments and credentialed staff come together to form the developmental and academic foundation of our school. Traditional exercises in the areas of practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, science, art and cultural subjects invite even the youngest child to be about the outer work that creates his own inner growth. Stimulating unit studies offer early exposure to geography, history, botany, zoology and physical science. The extensive vocabulary and open-ended work in these areas lay a foundation for future academic learning.
