Creative Beginnings Preschool
Creative Beginnings Preschool is a child development preschool which provides a loving, caring, supportive environment for young children, meeting them at their present levels of growth and maturity, and encouraging them in their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social development. We believe that it is important that children develop a strong sense of self-worth and self-confidence so that they can relate to their peer group and assume a sense of responsibility. By building a positive experience, it is our belief that children will grow to adulthood confident in their ability to influence, constructively and creatively, the social and physical environment around them. Play is the primary way in which children learn. We contribute to this learning in the following ways. Language Experiences will develop the children’s use of the English language, increase their vocabulary, and ultimately give them a delight in the use of words. Science Experiences will develop the children’s sense of spatial and numerical relationships, involve them in the wonder of natural growth and increase their interest in the physical world around them. It will give them an elementary sense of cause and effect and develop their own ability to influence and affect the world around them. Creative Experiences in music, art, poetry, drama, and dance will stimulate their artistic skills by working with their natural abilities to see, hear, taste, touch, and smell. As these skills develop, the children will expand their creativity and grow in appreciation of the arts. Physical Experiences both inside and out, are planned to develop small and large motor coordination skills. Daily involvement in a variety of physical activities will release the children’s natural tensions, develop their muscles, and give them a sense of accomplishment in the mastering of body skills. Spiritual Experiences will provide opportunities for children to feel a sense of wonder as they discover the world God made. Social Experiences in sharing toys, and people will help the children to find constructive ways for dealing with their anger, joy, frustration, happiness, disappointment and wonder. Such experiences will also support their relationships among other people in different environments.

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.

St. Margaret's Day School

St. Margaret’s Day School provides children with an opportunity to learn about themselves and the world around them.The school exposes children to... learning experiences and gives them ample opportunity to explore, experiment, create and feel successful. A young child needs to have the opportunity to grow in relationships with other children of similar ages socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually. These goals are best achieved in a warm, open learning environment, facilitated by professional, caring adults. Each child is unique and develops at his/her own individual rate. Therefore, the curriculum must reflect each child's own needs, interests and level of development. Our curriculum includes a full program of emergent math and early literacy activities, which are consistent with the most current philosophies of early childhood education. We also emphasize science, music, movement, art, drama, cooking, and social skills appropriate to the age level of the children so they can experience the excitement of learning and about the world around them. In addition, each age/grade level includes special thematic units with developmentally appropriate goals and objectives.

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.

As part of the Infant Program, the First Steps classroom helps the child transition from Infant to Toddler as the budding explorers learn new vocabulary and self-help skills. The Goddard School® F.L.EX.® Learning Program sets the stage for self confidence by encouraging progress at a child’s own pace, according to individual needs and abilities. Learning centers for math, science, dramatic play, music, creative art and computers provide opportunities to balance both shared and independent learning experiences.
