3 Day Program (MWF)

Our Three Day Program contains a wealth of activities to engage young minds and foster a lifelong love of learning.

The program is founded on Montessori principles which include design of the classroom, the teacher as a facilitator and extended work periods. We employ traditional Montessori materials, modern educational materials and some teacher made materials. They include: Sensorial materials, to incite the senses; Practical Life materials to refine fine motor skills; Language activities to develop letter/sound recognition; Math materials to learn counting, ordination and beginning addition/subtraction. The program also contains an abundance of manipulatives, such as blocks; art activities, painting, collaging, and drawing;  science projects, watching caterpillars turn into butterflies; a wealth of books and a very cozy loft, which acts as an area for fantasy play and dress-up activities.

A typical day in the North Class consists of at least two or three circle times, one for attendance, one for a Montessori demonstration, one for a song or movement activity; one extended Work Time, a free choice period where children choose their own work and teachers work with small groups and individuals; an Outdoor Time, on our rooftop playground; a Book Time, where children can look at books and/or hear one read to them; and a nutritious snack.
