Our classrooms are not teacher led: they are child driven. We take pride in offering an environment in which active learning takes priority.

Our classrooms provide a prepared learning environment to welcome each student, emphasize independent learning, encourage social interactions and help each child develop physically, cognitively, and socially. The curriculum encompasses five major Montessori areas of learning: practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language and cultural studies.
Practical Life Area
The Practical Life Area provides students with life skills that promote healthy independence, coordination, concentration, self-control, self-awareness and confidence development.
The Sensorial area is specifically designed to isolate and refine each of the child’s five senses. Students develop fine motor skills, visual and auditory senses, coordination and the ability to order and classify a variety of objects through the lessons provided in this area.
The Mathematics area uses a variety of concrete learning materials to introduce students to mathematic concepts. Children engage in a variety of lessons which enhance their number sense skills and allow them to move from concrete to abstract lessons such as place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and fractions.
The Language area provides children with specific hands-on and tactile materials that focus on phonemic awareness. Students learn to isolate beginning, middle and ending sounds of words in order to decode (read) and encode (spell) words.
The cultural area allows children to explore the natural world around them. Students use a variety of tools, such as, globes, puzzle maps, flags and photographs to learn about different cultures, holidays and traditions.
