Pre-School Ages 3-6 (Children’s House)
Mon-Tues-Wed and/or Wed-Thurs-Fri from 8:45 AM-12:00 noon, children, ages 3 and 4, are invited to work with the Montessori curriculum in a Christian context. Trained teachers give beautiful lessons on a daily basis to help children grow in independence, respect, and responsibility. The classroom has distinct areas of learning:
- Language Arts
- The Atrium with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
- Practical Life
- Musikgarten classes called “Cycle of Seasons.”
There is an All-Day Preschool option available upon request.
Mon-Tues-Wed and/or Wed-Thurs-Fri from 8:45am-3:15pm, children, ages 5 and 6, spend the morning in Children’s House (as described above) and then eat lunch, where grace and manners are emphasized. In the afternoon, lessons in language and mathematics are expanded using Kin-esthetic materials. This enables the child to enjoy and explore the world, completely understand various operations and result in math and language concepts being easily attainable.
