"The development of the child during the first three years after birth is unequaled in intensity and importance by any period that precedes or follows in the whole life of the child."

A Montessori inspired open-ended curriculum and age appropriate program for toddlers and preschoolers that prepares them for kindergarten and infuses a love for learning. Besides the basic core educational goals, our program also introduces children to art, music, dance/movement, foreign/sign language and social/developmental skills.

 

CREATIVE MOVEMENT:
It is our belief that the development of the body is as important as the development of the mind. In order to build an efficient, well-functioning body/mind, great emphasis is put on participation in structured and creative activities. The curriculum is a comprehensive program of movement and physical education, which focuses on enhancing gross motor coordination, eye-hand coordination, flexibility and agility. 

YOGA:
Your child can have fun while developing the mind and body benefits of Yoga. This children’s movement–based experience focuses on channeling his/her high energy into a positive, focused direction through postures, sounds, visualization, and breathing techniques. Yoga helps children build concentration skills, cultivate inner strength, raise self-esteem, develop self-regulation and foster poise and strength.

ART:
This program teaches basic art principles, appropriate age/stage instruction and utilizes multimedia materials to foster creativity while exposing children to Art Masters such as Van Gogh, Matisse and Picasso.
MUSIC:
Our Montessori music program encourages all our students to dance and sing, promoting rhythm, pitch and language development. Playing percussion instruments develops fine motor skills as well as a sense of rhythm and playing together within a group. Many styles of music are experienced and explored as the children learn the relationship of music and story.  Performances throughout the school year add to the performing arts experience.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE:
This program is a conversational introduction to the Spanish language and culture.  Through music, dance and hands-on activities, students begin to apply the Spanish language to their every day life.  Lessons include numbers, letters, greetings, family traditions and much more.  We will also incorporate the language and cultural traditions of other children in the program, encouraging the children and their families to share their experiences. Sign Language is also used to encourage the least verbal children to participate; and they all have fun doing it at the same time.

LITTLE CHEFS:
Little Chefs will get a chance to have some fun in this hands-on "non-cooking" cooking program. This course will combine basic introduction to healthy eating habits and smart food choices with easy to follow instructions that students will complete as they learn about measurement and other math skills.
CHESS SCHOLARS:
Develop your child’s intellect through the fun game of chess! Current research has shown a strong link between chess and academic performance. Chess has also been proven to enhance motivation, concentration, focus, social skills and creativity. No previous knowledge of chess is necessary. Each class will consist of a fun, interactive teaching period and guided practice time.
STEM:
Inspiring the love of learning with demonstrations, discovery, and relevant “hands on” activities.  This program empowers children to understand STEM as it relates to their futures and the world around them.  Through inquiry-based scientific methods, your child will develop critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration skills while learning about germs, leaves & seeds, dinosaurs, the moon and more!

 

"We see no limit to what should be offered to the child, for his will be an immense field of chosen activity."
