Preschool Program

The preschool classroom is designed in a manner that allows children to work independently and at their own developmental pace. Greater Montessori School accepts students into a welcoming and mind-stimulating academic curriculum. Research has proven that children during this age group tend to have a heightened ability to absorb information. Based on this research, we want to help you create little geniuses who positively impact the world. This program assists in meeting the needs of children who are curious, active, and explorative. Not only do we offer theoretical knowledge to our students, we also give our students a chance to actively carry out concepts taught to cement their learning experience.

Academic Preparation:

In Montessori education, children learn to learn by learning. Academic preparation entails activation and cultivation of inherent powers and processes through which the learner becomes a supplier of meanings or of things meaningfully known. Academic skills are essential to learning and knowing, not the aim of learning and knowing. Do students acquire academic skills and apply them in learning to learn?

Spiritual Awareness:

Montessori views the child as a spiritual embryo. Implications are conveyed by the metaphor. All humans are spiritual beings as well as physical beings. They have spiritual health as well as physical health. Montessori sees no need to establish whether or not the source of spirit is theological and does not offer theological explanation. The spiritual embryo simply thrives on spiritual investment. The investment can be theological, humane, or a combination of the two. What are the spiritual outcomes of school experience?

Citizens of the World:

All children are part of both a world political system and a world ecological system. Both systems have their constitutions, and all must learn to live by the letter and spirit of their laws. As a naturalist, Montessori knew about the laws of mind and of nature and understood the consequences of disobeying either of them. What are the citizenship outcomes of school experience? Are the children acquiring civic virtue? Are they acquiring dispositions to understand the natural world, to cherish it, and to live harmoniously within it?

Practical Life:

The direct aim of Practical Life Activities is to assist your child in developing socialskills and personal independence. They learn to take care of their self and their environment. The indirect aim is to develop your child’s fine motor movement, which involves thebody, intellect, and will. The activities of Practical Life are divided into four categories:Preliminary activities, care of self, care of the environment, and social graces and courtesies.

Mathematics:

An understanding of quantity is the first mathematical problem a child faces. At a certain point in their development, the child graduates from sensorial explorations tomeasuring and counting. Like the Sensorial training, we start with simple concrete numbers andprogress to the abstract.

Language Arts:

Montessorians believe children should be taught to read using a systematicphonetic approach. We follow a step-by-step phonetic approach to teaching reading and writing and we tailor the program to each individual. We prepare your child by firstteaching them how to isolate the sounds that comprise a word. Second, we teach them how to identify the physical letters based on the phonetic sounds they represent. Third, weshow them how to decode sounds in individual words. With reading, we begin by teaching how to blend sounds together to comprehend the word the letters create.

Social Graces and Courtesies:

Montessori introduces grace and courtesy to address the youngchild’s need for order. Children have a need to know and to absorb the social structures in orderto be more at ease in their environment. Grace and courtesy lessons give your child thevocabulary, actions, and steps required for them to build awareness and responsiveness ofthose around them. This in turn givesa better sense of orientation in their social structure.
