Language Arts in Early Childhood
Language Arts in Early Childhood

Stories and books entice our children. Montessori knew that young children yearn to unlock the mysterious code of language. They build vocabulary at an alarming rate, listening to everything around them. They delight in sounds, in rhyme, in word play as their ears become attuned and they learn to verbally manipulate the language themselves. This is where they begin to trace an A, with a finger, in sand, in shaving cream - that muscle memory sticks. They begin to hear, and see A where ever they go. They have the power to crack the code!

Math in Early Childhood
Math in Early Childhood

Maria Montessori's complex and enticing math curriculum begins with the hand. The manipulation of myriad materials to carry the weight of, feel the shape of and count the beauty upon. These materials, from a very young age, teach children to order, organize and categorize developing the scientific and mathematical mind. Blocks of red, blue and black remain a puzzle at this age, but they have sown the seeds of algebra.

Cultural Studies in Early Childhood

Our rooms are filled with life, not only the children but the plants and animals throughout the room. The subjects of botany and zoology are encountered each day as the children learn to care for their environment. Our children get their hands into everything from experiments growing seeds to building a puzzle map of South America. They touch rice from Thailand, cloth from Kenya and or a statue from France. Our young children build the vocabulary to name and describe their world and with those names they grown confident of their profoundly important place with it.

Practical Life in Early Childhood
Practical Life in Early Childhood

This is a foundational element of the Montessori Early Childhood curriculum. Our children learn the practical skills to care for themselves, others and the environment in which they live. When a child shouts, "I did it! I buttoned the whole thing by myself!" This is a cry of independence, a cry of confidence, and joyful self-determination. These task, seemly so mundane, to our adult eyes are where we see concentration begin to set in. This focus, this absorption in one's one work, this flow we see is the ultimate gift of a Montessori education.
