Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Whispering Farms Montessori Academy provides the environment and opportunity for the
physical, social, and mental development of children. The curriculum is designed to stimulate
growth through a balance of guided and self-directed activities. Each child is given the
opportunity for individual development and exploration through an environment that is creative,
stimulating and nurturing."
Excerpted from the preschool's website

A Typical Day

We start our days with Meet and Greet, which leads to Circle time where social graces are introduced. Our Academic program is complimented by structured activities to achieve optimal balance of healthy minds in healthy bodies.

  • Email
  • Special Meetings
  • Drop-Off
  • Pick-Up
  • Regular newsletter/printed updates circulated to the whole school


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Small group sessions
  • Parents in classroom early on

Handling Separation: From the Director

In the beginning of the school year, the first day is designated to new students and their parents only. This way the teachers and the parents help each other to get the new student settled in their environment.
The new parents are advised to arrive a bit early with their children so that they can walk their children to class and help in settling them in the routine.
