Instruction is given three ways: class presentations, small group presentations, and individual lessons.
Class and small group presentations allow children to synergize and think of ideas as a team. It encourages them to participate and work together as a community. It allows children to practice values such as respect for others, kindness, empathy, humility, and teamwork.
Individual lessons are primarily used in the classroom. Before children are allowed to freely choose their work, they are given lessons on materials of interest and readiness. The Montessori Directress gives her full attention to the child during individual lessons. This makes the lesson very special for the child. These lessons are designed according to the interests and readiness of the child.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Our After-school program begins at 3:00 p.m. Children have planned daily activities in arts, crafts, music, outdoor play, story time, and movement. Extra-curricular activities are also offered. There is no television watching in our afternoon program. The children are engaged in many creative and academic activities.
Our certified Montessori teachers are trained to recognize each child’s potential and periods of readiness. Children are allowed to learn at their own pace without coercion and flourish in a non-competitive environment. All of our teachers are fingerprinted, have their FBI and Department of Justice clearance, and are CPR and First Aid certified. Elementary teachers are California State credentialed and Montessori Lower and Upper Elementary credentialed.
Our summer program is open to all. Our summer session will be from July to August. Montessori lessons continue throughout our summer program.
