I LOVE Montessori and wish I had known about it when my children were little.
The Montessori method of learning calls for free choice of activity within a “prepared environment”; meaning an educational environment tailored to specific developmental needs of children at different ages and stages of intellectual, physical, emotional and social growth. The function of the environment is to allow the child to develop independence in all areas according to his or her inner psychological directives.
Each classroom is tailored to enhance the learning experience for each age range.
Our school has 3 separate playgrounds to meet each child’s gross motor needs.
Our infant room is run by a loving and professional teacher, Ms. Zehnada.
Our infant room is filled with many enticing objects to explore.
Our infant room has a maximum of 4 babies to 1 teacher. This allows for more one-on-one time to build feelings of security.
Our toddler room is geared towards helping the children gain independence and self confidence.
A small table and chairs for our toddlers help prepare them to eat by themselves.

Learning in a Montessori classroom is child led.
This class is for children age 3-6 and covers many areas: Practical life, Language, Math, Geography, Sensorial, Science and Art.
Practical Life area.
In practical life, children work on focusing and accomplishing a multi step work.
Kids LOVE to wash dishes and clean. Here is a dish washing station. Children will work in this area for a good thirty minutes.
We begin teaching language using I Spy games, such as ‘I spy something that begins with the Buh sound.’ Afterwards we move onto sandpaper letters and the sounds of different letters, not the names of the letters. Once the child is able to retain about 8-10 letter sounds, we begin to combine the sounds to make phonetic words.
Children start with learning to recognize numerals and then to correlating amounts to the number symbol. Once they complete the Primary class, they are able to do high level addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Children learn about different cultures and animals around the world. As well as map skills.
Sensorial exercises were designed by Montessori to cover every quality that can be perceived by the senses such as size, shape, composition, texture, loudness, smell and taste.
