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.
