Early Childhood Program

Montessori Early Childhood Program:

Children Three to Six Years Young

thumb imageThe child in the preprimary or early childhood program is provided an opportunity to learn with other children using the Montessori materials. Trained Montessori teachers direct and supervise the children’s use of these materials. The children gain experience in work-concentration habits and socialization skills within the indoor and outdoor classroom environments. The experiences that the child gains allow her/him to progress naturally toward the next plateau of development.

The daily schedule consists of work time with the materials; outdoor play and classroom time; and a group structured time during which children experience sharing, songs, stories, and demonstration of the materials’ use(s). Children may be enrolled for four or five days per week. Under special circumstances, a child may be enrolled for three days per week. During any of these programs, we provide breakfast, morning and afternoon snacks, lunch, as well as an optional nap for those children remaining through the regular program or extended portion of the day.

As your young child matures, (s)he transitions from a sense of parallel play, defined in the previous paragraph, to an attitude of cooperative play. During this stage of development, the child gravitates toward a desire to work with her/his peers. The child has moved from a sense of working alone among a group of children to working along with the group. The Montessori Preschool Program allows these concepts to develop naturally through the teachers’ role modeling as well as the integration of the children’s age levels and interests. In this environment, the children explore Montessori materials in a more advanced manner.

In mathematics, concepts of 1-10 progress into addition and subtraction, with golden-bead materials used for counting. Sensorial instruction centers on geometric tasks that correlate with various mathematical concepts. Language and reading materials, including the sandpaper letters and the moveable alphabet, guide the child toward recognition of the alphabet both by letter and by sound. Upon mastery of these language and math tasks, children integrate pre-reading and reading skills through the use of small primer books; these allow the child to begin putting together in book form what (s)he has experienced visually. Writing extensions are integrated to strengthen your child’s interest in reading. The children write lower-case letters first. In addition, the practical-life area of the classroom enables the child to extend her/his independence and develop a sense of space and order.

The cultural subjects in the Early Childhood/Preprimary Program focus on the areas of zoology, botany, geography, history, art, and music. In addition, we provide children with physical education and activities within groups indoors as well as outdoors.
