General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"This is a non-denominational program that strives to expose the children to basic concepts that most Christian churches share. We have always had many children of other faiths and parents have been pleased with the way our teachers have handled this program. Our parents have been very supportive of this program over many years.
By Now, we hope you have seen that the Sunshine Acres Preschool and Kindergarten is a very sophisticated program utilizing many creative materials and the hard work of equally creative teachers. That is why we call our program "More than Montessori." We are thankful for the strong parental support that has allowed us to develop such a fine program. We enjoy the happy comments and letters we receive every year. But, the best feedback is your child's smile each day.

A Typical Day

"Large Group Time:
for welcoming and singing together
Small Group Time: for fun and concept/skill growth
Work/Center Time: the core of the Montessori program, where children choose work independently, and teachers help and challenge them individually. Other goals such as independence, self-discipline, love of learning, completion of task, and social and emotional growth are also important during this time.
Snack/Outside Time: for bodies, minds, and social skills "
