We will be offering our Online Learning Program for Fall 2020 to help nurture preschool, kindergarten and elementary-aged children who will be remaining home.

The program, led by our certified Montessori teachers, will engage children in the five Montessori learning areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language and Cultural Studies; while fostering curiosity, creativity and critical thinking. Children will be engaged in core subjects like early literacy, reading, writing, language, science, and math while encouraging creativity and development of character skills.

Sample Lesson Plan

Our Montessori Links curriculum integrates the five core Montessori learning areas with an interdisciplinary learning experience in Character Development, STEM, Continent Connections, and Author Study & Arts. For each month in the academic year, the Montessori Links curriculum is developed around a Theme and a Continent Study that incorporates work across the five Montessori learning areas. These monthly themes integrate age-appropriate activities and materials into the daily routine, allowing children to interact with complex topics with appropriate interconnectivity and repetition. This prepares children with a more conceptual understanding critical for their future success.

Below is a sample of a week in the month of November for our Primary program.  November is a time we focus on the theme of Gratitude and the continent of North America.

• Explore a puzzle map of North America

• Introduce students to Mayan civilization

• Listen to compositions by Jesús González Rubio who was a professor of music in Guadalajara, Mexico, and is best known for having composed the Jarabe Tapatío, also known in the United States as the "Mexican Hat Dance"
