Early Childhood Program

Ages 3 Years to 6 Years

Our Montessori Early Childhood Program differs from traditional early-childhood education in that each classroom is a carefully prepared environment designed specifically to engage the student's natural curiosity and love of learning. Our Early Childhood program, designed for children between the ages of 3 to 6 years, approaches each child individually within the context of community which results in self-confidence, joy, and a life-long love of learning.

Early Childhood, Years 3 & 4

Beautiful hands on materials offer experiences. Manipulative, concrete materials in the classroom enable each child to work at tasks that are naturally engaging, developmentally appropriate, and provide opportunities for a child to develop concentration, coordination, independence, order, and the five senses as well as enriched language and math skills.

Early Childhood, Year 5: Kindergarten

(ages 5 to 6 years)

The Montessori Early Childhood curriculum is designed for children to take the skills they acquired from zero to three and refine them to be successful school age children. Your child will stay in the Early Childhood classroom for 3 years (ages 3 to 6), including the traditional "kindergarten year" -- when the seeds of learning come to fruition. That third year in the classroom is when everything clicks or comes together.

  • Learn More About Our Kindergarten Program

    Our Kindergarteners have become critical thinkers and problem solvers. They are role models in their community. The opportunity to be a leader in the very place you were once a conscientious observer, is priceless. The Kindergartener now becomes a teacher to their younger peers. As they give presentations and help others, they are building independence and autonomy that is often missed in other educational settings. They complete their year as well-rounded learners ready to take on the most challenging of tasks.
