Welcome

Welcome to an exciting new year at Arbor View Montessori School. A special welcome to all the new students and their families that are joining us! We are very happy to have you with us.

Choosing a Montessori Preschool

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:

Why Choose Montessori

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.

Fun Food & Botany

Having fun with food can be very healthy too
Food Fun

At Arbor View Montessori School, we Integrate botany curriculum lessons about edible seeds, roots, stems, fruits and vegetables.

Montessori teaches with a hands-on sensorial method, different from traditional preschool and day care programs. Our Fun Food & Botany curriculum begins with activities that teach your child how food grows, from seed to stem, leaf, fruit or vegetable.

Montessori & Science

Children learn science by experiencing life
Montessori & Science

"We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry." – Maria Montessori

At Arbor View Montessori School, science is introduced to children at a young age with subjects like botany and zoology. Children have a natural desire to explore what they see. We provide various opportunities for the child to study and observe their environment, through gardening, nature walks, and care of animals.

The Practical Life Activities

The Practical Life Activities

Practical Life activities at Arbor View Montessori School develop concentration, fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

Dr. Montessori wrote, “A child’s work is to create the person he or she will become. An adult works to perfect the environment, but a child works is to perfect his or herself” Using the child’s natural inclination as a point of departure, Dr. Montessori structured several exercises for the classroom to help the child satisfy their need for meaningful activity.
