Ages 3 to 6

Dr. Maria Montessori believed that the goal of education is to help each child reach his or her full potential. In a Montessori classroom, children cultivate their own desire to learn in an environment that is supportive and challenging. The children are grouped in three-year age spans. This grouping promotes a sense of family or community as well as providing role models for the younger children. The primary Montessori environment promotes the development of motor skills, a sense of order, concentration, and independence. The Montessori curriculum, under the direction of a Montessori-certified teacher, allows the child to experience the joy of discovery and learning. Dr. Maria Montessori reasoned that a child’s experiences could be enriched by a classroom where specially designed and beautiful materials demonstrate basic educational information. The multi-sensory, sequential and self-correcting materials facilitate the learning of skills leading to abstract ideas. There is nothing a child cannot touch, for this is how a child learns. Learning becomes an exciting opportunity rather than a chore to be completed.
