Curriculum & Activities

Montessori-Based Curriculum

Our Montessori-based curriculum has a theme-based format with an emphasis on learning through play. Our preschool curriculum has been designed to encourage creative and cognitive thinking skills in children through the use of music, art and projects. Built into the curriculum are social skills, problem solving and exploration to enhance appropriate behavior in children. Children are encouraged to be independent thinkers and learners. Working on projects, responding to relevant questions, listening, using creative movements and art projects allows children to explore and discover the world of math, reading, science, and literature.
