The Montessori Method is characterized by providing a prepared environment: tidy, pleasing in appearance, simple and real, where each element exists for a reason in order to help in the development of the child. A Montessori classroom integrates children of mixed age. The classroom curriculum for children from 2 to 6 years old is divided into four working areas.

Practical Life: These are activities that aim to the care of the person, of others and of the physical environment where they live in. These activities include tasks that are familiar to the child: washing, polishing, setting the table, arranging flowers, etc. They also include activities of "grace and courtesy", which are part of all civilized people. Through these and other activities, children achieve coordination and control of movement and exploration of his/her surroundings. Children learn to complete a task from beginning to end, they develop their will, self-discipline, the capacity of concentration and self-confidence.

Sensorial: Children at this age learn through senses more than through their intellect. The sensorial materials are tools for children to refine each of their senses. Each material isolates a specific quality: smell, size, weight, texture, flavor, color, etc. In this preschool age, when children are "bombarded" with sensorial information, these materials allow them to find order and meaning to the world, raising his/her capacity of perception, favoring observation and a sense of admiration for everything that surrounds him/her.

Language: When the child enters an environment at age 3, they enrich the language that they had already acquired. They are capable of using it intelligently with precision and beauty, slowly realizing its properties. They learn to write, starting with their senses (hearing and touching), and as a natural consequences they learn to read. As an extension of language activities, children learn about geography, history, art and music. These areas help the child to know his/her surroundings and to realize the place the child occupies in this world. They teach him to respect and love for his/her environment, and they create a sense of solidarity with all humanity and his/her habitat.

Mathematics: The materials help the child to learn and understand mathematical concepts when working with concrete materials that lead him/her intuitively to abstract concepts. They offer him/her sensorial impressions of the numbers and set the foundations for algebra and geometry."

Lesson Size

Our curriculum is based on individual and small-group lessons given within the classroom according to Dr. Maria Montessori philosophy.

Extra-Curricular Activities

"Our state-of-the-art playground and beautiful surroundings have various options for children to experience the outdoors. They get plenty of opportunities to have fun, practice their motor skills, take nature walks, learn about plants and animals, etc. as part of their academic day. Once after care is available, students will have the additional opportunities to learn music, dance etc. All these lessons will be taught by qualified teachers who have bought into the Montessori philosophy and are supplementing the materials taught in the classroom."

Student Assessment

Currently daily experience sheets are documented for each student and shared with the parents during conferences. If parents are encourage to communicate with teacher regular so learning is consistent and continues at home. To keep parents informed and families involved we are in the process of implementing an app so we can continue to deliver competent services.

Nutritional Meals

Lunch and snacks are prepared in our own kitchen with natural ingredients, some from our own garden at the highest standards of cleanliness.
