Our Programs

Primary

The primary curriculum is designed with the understanding that children learn best through real-life activities that support independence, concrete experiences that engage the senses, and open-ended exploration.  This leads to the refinement of their movements, sensory perceptions, language and intellect development. Children thrive through opportunities to follow their own interests and freely choose their own scaffolded activities.  Through guided exploration they develop independence,, concentration and curiosity.

Montessori materials are used for the primary program.  These materials  are designed to support self-directed discovery and learning. They are organized around Practical Life activities that develop both independence and concentration; Sensorial activities that refine and develop the child’s senses; the development of Spoken Language, Writing and Reading skills; and Mathematical activities that develop fundamental mathematical concepts; and Cultural activities that include geography, history, biology, science, music, and the arts.

Senior Daycare 

The Senior Program is designed to help support cognitive function for seniors who are aging.  Many of the skills for independence are reinforced by working with Montessori materials in practical life, language activities,, sensorial, math, cultural, art and musical activities.  By understanding the historical experiences of the Senior, our staff strives to build experiences that are connected to their work, hobbies and interest to continue to stimulate their mind.  In this small setting seniors will receive quality care and attention in a safe space while away from their family members.

The child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope that humanity can develop in a new direction.
