Montessori International Children's House
Our mission is to provide a Montessori education, guided by AMI principles, that fosters the intellectual curiosity and creativity of our students. At MICH, children, staff and families collaborate to build and maintain a respectful, diverse and nurturing school community. The Toddler Community is an intimate community of twelve children with a trained directress and two assistants. The environment provides a specific structure to meet the physical, psychological and cognitive needs of toddlers. The Toddler Program emphasizes language enrichment, sensory-motorexploration and "practical life" activities to foster the toddler's growing sense of independence. Cooperation and collaboration are emphasized in all adult-toddler interactions. Before the age of six, children possess unusual sensitivity and mental powers for absorbing and learning from the environment. Dr. Montessori called this mental power the "absorbent mind." At this level, there is a great need and potential for careful, exacting work and a natural desire to learn. The Montessori primary classroom allows children to explore, develop their senses, and learn for themselves during this stage of heightened receptivity. There are thirty children with a trained directress and an assistant. The children stay with the same directress for three or four years. The classroom is a "living room" in which self-correcting educational materials are displayed on open shelves organized by logical, orderly, distinct areas called practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, and cultural subjects. The Montessori curriculum provides uninterrupted blocks of time during which each child is engaged in captivating learning activities which foster self-discipline and concentration.
Chesapeake Montessori Extended Day
Chesapeake Montessori School guides children in their development to become confident, respectful, kind, and independent individuals with well-developed powers of reasoning and a joy for learning. Using Montessori theory and practice of individualized learning in a whole-school community, we are committed to creating rich environments indoors and outdoors that provide intellectual, academic, social, and emotional preparation for life. The Young Child Community, for children age 18 months through 3 years old, serves as the foundation of a child's education. At this age, a child is constantly absorbing impressions from the environment, at first rather like a camera and then more self-consciously. This child is continuing the process, begun at birth, of developing language, coordination of movement, and independence. At Chesapeake Montessori School, this development is facilitated by the child's active participation and interaction with the environment. The classroom is scaled for children's active involvement. Low shelving holds enticing materials that aid a child's progress toward independence. A teacher and an assistant work with a class of nine to twelve toddlers, usually working with each child individually. Movement and Knowledge: Many activities in the Young Child Community are connected to the Montessori area called practical life. Children help with food preparation, carry their own trays and sponge up spills, all roles that aid the child's development of movement control, and develop concentration and independence. Many activities foster eye-hand coordination: sewing, manipulating scissors, or gluing papers. Feeling objects in the "fishing bags" develops the ability to identify objects by using only the sense of touch aided by visual memory. Toddlers explore with all their senses and the classroom and outdoor environment provides a wealth of opportunity for sensorial development. Language: Toddlers are eager to learn the names of things, to know the words that are appropriate to a given situation. They work tirelessly at learning to communicate with those around them, while they increase their vocabularies and the length and complexity of their spoken phrases. Listening to stories or joyfully learning names for various plants and animals or for objects in their environment: these activities help children become more familiar with the richness of their language.
