Come for a Visit and Explore Our School.
Here at Adventures in Montessori we warmly welcome you into an environment of exploration for all children. Our school offers a remarkable voyage for your children starting in infancy thru toddlers and primary continuing with the Montessori philosophy and the basic Montessori tenets; respect yourself, respect others and respect the environment. The Montessori curriculum is the guiding principle behind all that we do. Come for a visit and explore our school.
Our Montessori environment is designed for freedom and exploration. The classrooms are inviting, safe, and designed to feel like an extension of the home environment. Every detail of the environment is specifically designed for young children. The shelves are low, and activities(work) are uncluttered and organized for ease and beauty. The room has baskets, rockers, and soft areas for exploration and discovery. It is a community where respect for the child as a unique individual is the primary focus. The teachers (guides) are compassionate, trained observers that connect with each child by using eye contact, kneeling to the child's level, addressing your children by name, and speaking before touching or moving them. The classroom is calm, consistent, and engaging. The adults build trust in a peaceful, soothing atmosphere in which consistent caregivers create an emotional haven for those in their care. Learning materials are easily accessible. These materials foster physical skills ( crawling, walking, balance), concentration, problem-solving, and a sense of self.
Children 2.9 to 6 years are members of our Primary Environment. Children transition easily to our Primary Environment from the Toddler Community, as many of the child’s first new lessons correspond to experiences they have already had. Real-life work activities remain, from scrubbing tables to scrubbing chairs and dishes, setting tables for lunch and snack, sweeping and dusting, and caring for classroom animals. Children begin their academic work in the Primary Environment with joy and enthusiasm. Our Guides supplement the curriculum areas with culturally diverse themes and representations and provide enriching experiences in the natural environment. Children are best served by the Primary Environment when they participate in a full three-year cycle, including their Kindergarten year.
Here at adventures in Montessori our primary objective in our academic program is to create a path of exploration to meaningful learning. Children learn to explore the environment around them thru the use of Montessori materials, spirted play, caring guidance and a rigorous program of academics.
