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. Our Kindergarten uses the McGraw Hill Reading series and the Harcourt Brace math curriculum.Throughout the school year, we offer multiple opportunities, at various times in the day and evening, for families to participate in their children’s school experience.
