Our Programs

From 18 months to third grade, our goal is to provide your child with the independence to grow and instill their natural desire to learn.

 

Toddler

 18 months to 2 years old

We offer a modified, traditional Montessori program, five days/week, for our toddlers. The toddler environment is adapted to the physical and motor development needs of these younger students. In keeping with Montessori philosophy of promoting independence, we will assist your child with toilet training. Our basic toddler program is 9 am – 3 pm, with extended care hours from 7 am – 6:30 pm.  This program is available at all of our locations.

Primary (Pre-K)

2 to 4 years old

We offer morning classes from 8:30 AM – 11:15 AM or afternoon classes from 12:15 PM – 3:00 PM, five days a week. The children are introduced sequentially to the following five areas of the prepared environment: practical life, sensorial, language, math, and cultural. Self-esteem, concentration skills, and good work habits are developed as a result of this environment.

Kindergarten

5 years old

Kindergarten classes are from 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM with a morning mixed ages class and an afternoon Kindergarten only class. In the afternoon class, our Kindergarteners continue to use extensions of the Montessori materials, which are introduced in the morning class. This enhances their ability to develop concentration and complete more challenging work.

 

Elementary (first-third grade)

6 to 9 years old

Classes are held from 8:30 AM – 3:00 PM. This program allows for continuity in the development of good work habits, and scholastic skills begun in earlier years. Working alone or in small groups, with direction from staff with a high adult-to-student ratio, the children progress at their own natural pace. The skills of reading, writing, and arithmetic are stressed.
