Children’s House (Ages 3-6)
For the young child, learning is a process that involves all the senses. Dr. Maria Montessori created enticing materials for children to manipulate, and through their exploration, understand higher-level concepts, develop inner discipline and foster their natural curiosities. She discovered that given the proper amount of guidance and freedom, children develop a positive sense of self and their community.
The activities in the Children’s House fall into four major areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, and Mathematics. Music, art, science, gardening, and physical education are also part of the daily curriculum. Children develop self-discipline and a capacity for total concentration. Respect for others, courtesy and grace develop naturally as the children grow within the Montessori environment.
