Montessori Preschool serves children ages 6 weeks to 6 years. We have Montessori and extended care programs with part-time and full-time options.
A Home Away from Home
The Nido // Infant program is designed to meet the developmental needs of infants ages 6 weeks to 17 months. Dr. Maria Montessori first described the infant environment as Nido (meaning Nest in Italian). The classroom environment is cozy, loving, secure, attentive and comforting – just like at home.
Learning to be Independent
In the Montessori environment, Toddlers learn to be independent and confident, while developing their fine motor skills, oral language abilities, and concentration. If they’re ready for the challenge, Toddlers begin to master introductory phonics, numbers, and science concepts in preparation for the Children’s House (ages 2 ½ – 6).
I can do it!
The Children’s House community references the world’s first Montessori Preschool, called the Casa dei Bambini (meaning House of Children in Italian). In the Montessori environment, each child’s rhythm of growth is respected, while developing order, concentration, motor coordination, and independence.
The Year of Leadership
The Montessori Kindergarten Program is the final year of academic preparation at Montessori Preschool and rigorously prepares students in reading, writing, math, science, and the social sciences for Grade 1. They learn to be leaders in the classroom and in the larger school community. Children lead special initiatives in school and practice their academic skills through special events and experiences, curated for them and their families.
