Care of the environment, care of the self, 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. Arbor View Montessori preschool helps develop concentration, coordination, and a sense of order.
Arbor View Montessori School education identifies practical task mastery as one of its main focuses. By engaging in practical life activities to the point of mastery, a child learns how to make intelligent choices while becoming mentally and physically independent naturally spawning senses or responsibility. This level of education is not offered at a typical childcare facility.
