Fees & Enrollment
Our goals are:
• To stimulate children to develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically towards their full potential
• To allow children the freedom to learn at their own pace in atmosphere of respect and understanding of individual differences
• To encourage children to experience the joy of learning and the intrinsic satisfaction that comes with mastery of concepts and fundamental skills through creative use of attractive, self-correcting materials and activities
• To capitalize on their natural curiosity and guide their energies to enhance their sensory-motor and perceptual skills, language ability, creativity, social development by caring, well trained staff.
•Practical Life: The fundamental tools of learning (concentration, organization, coordination and independence) are established as the child learns simple tasks of daily living. These tasks involve care of themselves, such as buttoning, or bow tying, and care of the environment, such as clean up responsibilities after lunch-time. •Sensorial: The Montessori sensorial apparatus assists the child in learning to differentiate between sizes, shapes, colors, textures, sounds and tastes. Through these activities the child learns to evaluate and find solutions to concrete problems. •Mathematics: Children gain knowledge of the world of numbers and their functions through active manipulation of concrete Montessori materials. This learning is reinforced through play-oriented activities, such as building with blocks, measuring sand or ingredients for cooking. •Physical Activity: Children have daily opportunities to jump, run, swing, climb, etc. to develop their large muscles and gross motor movements. •Language Arts: Reading is inseparable from listening to stories, talking, and writing. Children are encouraged to communicate their ideas and feelings through dramatic play, drawing, and eventually writing about their own experiences. Children may experiment with tracing, copying and inventing their own spellings. When they realize that print has meaning, instructions in letter names and sounds with word identification become meaningful. •Cultural Sciences: Children are naturally curious about themselves and the world around them. They are encouraged to observe the changes in the environment, explore animal, human and plant life as well as experiment with material like air, water, wheels, etc. •Music/Art: Art is an integral part of the program. A variety of art media are available as easel painting, watercolor, clay and crayons. Music occurs at group time and involves singing, rhythm and movement. Our optional programs: Include Spanish, music, piano, dance, gymnastics and computers.
