Pre-School Ages 3-4
We have 2 Day half day available from 8:45 AM-12:30 PM, 3 Day or 5 Day all day options available from 8:45 AM-3:10 PM. Our 3 year olds (minimum 33 months and toilet trained) -4 year olds are invited to work and explore during uninterrupted periods of concentration, completing activities and returning them to the shelf, restoring order. 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:
- Mathematics (3 & 5 Day only)
- Language Arts (3 & 5 Day only)
- The Atrium with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
- Practical Life
- Musikgarten classes called “Cycle of Seasons.”
After the morning work cycle, children eat lunch, play outside, rest/nap, followed by continued work time with Montessori materials.
Kindergarten Ages 5-6
We have 2 Day, 3 Day or 5 Day all day options available from 8:45 AM-3:10 PM. 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.
