Pre School

(2-3 years)

    A Montessori classroom for Preschoolers has four main areas of activity; Fine and Gross Motor Activities, Sensory Awareness, Beginning Numeral Skills, Language and Sound Development, Physical Activities and Creative Play

  •  Discovery and Sensory Development takes place through matching, touching and discriminating objects by using their five senses

  • Children are encouraged to sing, memorize songs, poems, etc., as a part of their Pre-Literacy Development and are read to daily for vocabulary enrichment. Language development is further stimulated through the introduction to letter sounds (as opposed to letter names) and classification of objects and pictures

  • With age appropriate readiness, Numeral Skills are introduced through numeral tracing on sand paper, repetition and recognition of numbers as well as its corresponding quantities

  • The multi-age classrooms, typically recreates a family structure modeling respect, kindness, peace and calm

  • Fine/Gross Motor Activities/Self-Care Activities are an important element in Montessori classrooms. Many of these activities isolate one particular skill, allowing pre-school children to master each skill one-step at a time and become self-independent

  • These life skill activities strengthen each child’s focus and concentration, helps master eye/hand coordination and develop fine motor skills through work with puzzles, beads, spooning, tweezing, scooping, pouring, etc.

  • Students enhance their gross motor skills through cutting, gluing, coloring, painting, outside activities, physical activities, music and creative movement

  • Children are encouraged to enhance self- independence through taking care of their environment
