Small World seeks to facilitate the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development of all its students and provide a solid foundation for life-long learning. We believe that the parents' role in their children's education is essential and family involvement at Small World is an integral part of what we offer.
Morning Class (Monday - Friday, from 8:45 a.m.-11:45 a.m.)
The Morning Class is the heart of the Montessori experience. The multi-age grouping
of 2 Â½ to 6 year-olds, in each classroom, creates opportunities for collaboration
and cooperation. This important dimension of the classroom focuses on the whole
child within the supportive setting of the social group. It allows each individual to
grow in their social role and become a contributing member. Each child is unique
with different interests, different abilities, and different needs. At Small World
Montessori School, we never lose sight of the individual needs of each child within the
social setting of the entire group. Children benefit most from consistent, daily
Extended Day (Monday - Friday, Morning Class, then continuing from 11:45 a.m.-2:30 p.m.)
Extended Day allows more time for individual and social development. The Extended Day begins with the morning class and continues with lunch. The children help with the preparation of a dining experience. They help to set the table and serve, thus growing in courtesy and proper etiquette.
In addition to the challenges of the excellent Montessori hands-on activities, we offer a variety of additional experiences during the extended hours:
â€¢ Art and Creative Expression
â€¢ Language Arts, Dramatics and Story Time
â€¢ Science Explorations
