Our program is designed for two-to-six year olds. Each classroom environment is thoughtfully and carefully prepared so that children can share the space in a safe and productive way. The three-to-five year old room is always attended by four teachers with a certified Montessori lead teacher. The lead teacher of the two’s classroom has two assistants, and no more than twelve students.
Discipline at the school is supportive, not punitive. Besides safety concerns, our rules say only that we are to respect each other and respect the materials. Misbehavior is treated as a mistake, and children - supported by appropriate words and actions modeled by adults - are encouraged to try again.
The teacher’s role in the classroom is to facilitate a child’s development process. Observation notes are compiled and every child’s development is assessed and discussed with parents at two conferences each year.
A bi-lingual environment and instruction are provided in both classrooms. We are excited to continue our collaboration with La Casita Center, a non-profit organization that provides educational and family services to Hispanic/Latino families. Both classrooms are staffed by an English-speaking teacher and a Spanish-speaking teacher.
