Education & Curriculum

Mathematics

Mathematics

Dr. Maria Montessori develops the “Mathematical” or “Scientific” mind by using concrete objects from the real world. The design of the materials encourage repetition which enhances learning. The children are introduced to the concept of numbers and the decimal system.

Practical Life Experiences

Practical Life Experiences

Care of the Environment, Care of the Self, and Grace and Courtesy are emphasized in this area. Children take part in everyday activities such as food preparation, sweeping and mopping, tying shoes, and setting a table. They develop concentration, coordination, and a sense of order.

Sensory Awareness

Sensory Awareness

All learning takes place through the senses. Maria Montessori emphasized the use of many senses in each exercise. Tactile olfactory discrimination, and auditory and visual perception are learned through manipulative exercises.

Language & Writing

Language & Writing

Maria Montessori believed that writing preceded reading in a child’s development. Many exercises are provided to teach pencil control and beginning handwriting. A phonetic approach is used to learn sounds through Sandpaper letters, objects and pictures.

Creative Arts

Creative Arts

Our program allows the children to express themselves through a variety of creative arts including: story telling, puppetry, plays, show and tell, cooking and arts & crafts. Singing and dancing are also a part of their daily experiences. Piano lessons will be available.

Science

Science

A child has a natural desire to explore what he sees. We provide various opportunities for the child to study and observe their environment, i.e., gardening, nature walks, and care of animals. At Arbor View Montessori children learn science by experiencing life.
