Dear Parents, Welcome to November! We all survived the ghosts and goblins of Halloween so now we will focus on Thanksgiving and the history of this great nation.  October was a busy month at Arbor View Montessori School. Many thanks to all the parents who drove to the pumpkin patch and helped with Halloween party. The children had great fun searching for their perfect pumpkins and going on the hay ride! The children looked wonderful in their school-logo T shirts. Every Wednesday our spirit day and all children and staff is required to wear their logo shirt to school. Thanks!

Choosing a Montessori Preschool
Parents that decided they like Montessori for their children must think carefully about how to select Montessori school if they are to ensure that their children receive the actual the education they want. Some Montessori preschools do not actually follow true Montessori principles or structure. Parents can ask three important questions to help ascertain whether the school is truly Montessori.

Preparing for the Preschool Year
The new school year begins soon, so now is the time to prepare your child for preschool, especially if this is the first time your child will attend preschool. Arbor View Montessori School recommends that you transition from summertime mode to routines and preparations that will help your child make a smooth and happy transition to preschool. A good way to start is to get back into school time routines to help avoid abrupt changes. Some things you can do to support you child in the transition to preschool are: Start going to bed earlier and waking up on a school time schedule. During the summer, we may get off our school time sleep schedule. Getting back into a school time sleeping pattern will make the transition easier for your child.

Why Choose Montessori
At Arbor View Montessori, we believe every child deserves the chance to reach his or her intellectual and social potential. Maria Montessori, the founder of Montessori Education, understood how a good education unlocks and realizes children's potential. In a traditional preschool or daycare, the needs of children and their particular learning needs can be put aside as teachers work to maintain control and discipline. The difference between Montessori Education and traditional child care, daycare or preschools is that Arbor View Montessori School focuses on providing an environment where children can learn self-care, self-control and self-discipline.

How Montessori Kids Learn
Children up to six years old see the world in very concrete ways. They learn about their environment through what they see, hear, touch, taste and smell. In a Montessori education children work with learning materials that can be experienced through the senses.

Math and Montessori
Children learn basic concepts of mathematics in either of two ways; By using concrete materials during the years when they enjoy manipulating equipment; or by abstract materials when they are in the elementary grades. At Arbor View Montessori, your child will learn the basic concepts of mathematics by using concrete materials during the preschool years when he or she enjoys manipulating material. Dr. Montessori demonstrated that if a child has access to mathematical activities in the early years, the child can easily and joyfully assimilate many facts and skills of arithmetic. This helps children more readily grasp abstract concepts they will encounter mathematics in the elementary grades.

Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and the founder of the Montessori method, which is the teaching method used at Arbor View Montessori School here in Roseville California. She was born in Chiaravalle, northern Italy in 1870, the only child of middle class parents. Maria wanted to become a physician, and she was accepted as the first female to attend Rome University. She graduated with honors, and she was the first Italian, female graduate in 1890. She returned to the University to do post-graduate research work in biology, anthropology and psychology, and she became a lecturing professor of anthropology at the University of Rome.
