PROGRAM OVERVIEW

In a Montessori program, children from the age of three onward are grouped in classes that include three different ages. The middle school program includes seventh and eighth graders. In these multi-aged groups, each child enjoys the role of the youngest, the middle, and the oldest child, over the time he or she spends in a class. In our multi-aged classrooms, older children help with younger ones, just as they would in a big family. This experience reinforces what children have already learned and strengthens their own integrity and responsibility. Younger children, in turn, benefit because children do learn from their peers as well as from their teachers.

Play is the young child’s work. The object of his efforts is the creation of the adult he will become. The child shows clearly an inner need to learn to know himself and his world.  He wants very much to develop his intelligence, to learn to control his motions, to explore and to order his impressions of the world, to become independent and responsible.

As children grow through the stages of development leading to young adulthood, their horizons continue to expand.  Their understanding of themselves, others, and the world around them deepens. They seek to move from membership in a family to citizenship in the world.

Montessori teachers design classrooms and structure curricula to support children’s growth and development. A Montessori education helps each child to discover himself, to understand others, and to recognize his place in the universe.
