At Montessori Garden our aim is to help children ages three to six become self-confident individuals. The school is organized to allow the child to move freely in an environment which has been specially prepared by a certified Montessori Teacher. As Montessori teachers our method is observation. To see and understand each child and to teach skills utilizing each child’s interests and talents. We provide an attractive, child sized environment where a child is free to discover how to learn. We know that learning is fun and we promote a disciplined environment where children can work and play together with joy and spontaneity.
The school is open from 7:30-6:00PM. Dawn-to-Dusk children begin and end their day in the “Kids Club”, enjoying arts/crafts, puzzles and toys. As the school day begins at 9:00 AM, the children are divided into the two Montessori classrooms to participate in morning “work time”. Mid-morning, the art and drama specialists conduct their lessons for the day. By lunch, some children will end their day while others continue to have second work time or a nap. On Fridays the children participate in show and tell and are offered a weekly class with our dance specialist.
All of Montessori teachers have been trained and certified in the Montessori Method by the American Montessori Society. We are an AMS affiliated school, for more information on the American Montessori Society please visit www.amshq.org.
