Traditional Montessori Preschool (3-6)
Available to toilet trained students only.
Traditional Montessori Preschool classes are offering a wide age range utilizing Montessori teaching methods and materials. Our Preschool experience offers exposure to all areas of the Montessori philosophy while incorporating some facets of more traditional teaching methods. Foreign language (Spanish) and enrichment program (Yoga, Dance & Movement, Drama classes) is incorporated into the curriculum. All areas are broken down into specific functions geared to the young child's intellectual and developmental levels. Lessons are presented with 2 or 3 dimensional materials allowing the child to see concepts clearly and move from concrete to more abstract ideas. Most lessons are self-correcting, letting the child experience error as part of the learning process.
