Choosing a program is an important decision, so parents are asked to do the following:

Activities
The classroom is a rich educational setting, filled with hands-on activities for this critical age of development. Dr. Montessori discovered that children all over the world, when given a choice, were drawn to real, purposeful activities including:

  • Food Preparation
  • Sensorial Materials
  • Art
  • Music
  • Language
  • Grace and courtesy lessons

Beautiful Outdoor Surroundings
The opportunity to move freely, developing both fine and gross motor skills is not only important from a physical standpoint, but also from a psychological one.

  • Sand Play
  • Tunnels and climbing equipment
  • Play house and outdoor kitchen
  • Tricycles and riding toys
  • Natural grass surface for tumbling and running
