OUR TEACHERS We only hire the best teachers for our classrooms. Most... of whom have been with us for five to ten years. Our teachers and Instructional Leaders love working with children and our able to observe each child’s needs to best serve them. The role of our teachers is to guide the students allowing each child to develop concentration, motivation, persistence, and discipline through their work. Within this framework of order, the child progresses at their own pace and rhythm, while discovering the joys of learning, and developing social and intellectual discipline. OUR CLASSROOM The Montessori classroom is nothing like a traditional classroom. In the Montessori classroom children our encouraged to explore, feel, and touch their surroundings. All activities are presented at eye level to the child on bookcases and other displays. The Montessori environment is designed to meet the physical, cognitive and social needs intrinsic to each child, and to nurture the child to learn and thrive. In the Montessori classroom, children are free to respond to their natural drive to work and learn. The child’s inherent joy of learning is encouraged by giving him/her the opportunities to engage in meaningful activities, under the guidance of the Montessori teacher. OUR PROGRAMS Unlike many other schools or day care facilities, we offer a diverse range of programs, enrichment and outreach for our students. Our Infant/Toddler program focuses on developing cognitive skills, motor skills, sensory skills, language skills, practical life skills, and social skills. The Primary, Pre-K , and Kindergarten Program builds on our Infant/Toddler Program and incorporate the five areas of the Montessori Method (Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, and Cultural Studies). At the Elementary Level, our programs continue to build and include Language, Mathematics, Science and Cultural Studies. Specialty programs are integrated into the general daily schedule, at least once a week and include Technology, Spanish, Music, Phys Ed, Yoga, Library, Art and Service Learning.
