DESCRIPTION

As a blended Montessori preschool, we are guided by the Montessori method and look to the most recent research in early childhood education to refine our practice. Our mixed-age classrooms are founded on Montessori principles. Clearly defined work areas follow the five Montessori areas: Sensorial, Practical Life, Math, Language, and Culture. Leveraging Dr. Montessori's concept of freedom within limits, we teach children to independently explore with respect to their environment and those in it.

Our mixed-age classes highlight the importance of peace education, peer relationships and the time needed to understand social negotiations. Teachers support children to find their interests and pursue them through extended work time and over multiple exposures.
