Montessori Elementary Community

As children enter the second plane of development, they are developing their reasoning mind. Instead of asking what, they now ask why and how. To find these answers, they gravitate toward others and work cooperatively with their peers.

This is a sensitive time for the development of the imagination: the ability to form creative ideas based on what is real and what is known. The children are introduced to the universe and all its possibilities.

The elementary classroom is designed to take into consideration the tendencies and characteristics of the 6-12-year-old and allows them to explore and learn in a way that follows the interest of the child, through the presentation of Cosmic Education and a vibrant Going-Out Program.

STEM education is also a large part of our Montessori program. The children learn hands on how science, technology, engineering, and math fit hand in hand together.

Montessori Elementary MethodCosmic Education

Cosmic Education refers to a process of learning which integrates all disciplines of study. The elementary curriculum encompasses Language, Math, Geometry, Geography (all the science disciplines), History, Biology (Botany and Zoology), and the Arts.

The foundation of Cosmic Education lies in the telling of the Five Great Lessons; The Coming of the Universe, The Coming of Life, The Story of Human Beings, The Story of the Alphabet, and The Story of Numerals.

The benefit of Cosmic Education for a child is the gradual development of thankfulness for the world around them and an understanding of their place in it.  They begin to understand they have been given many gifts from ancient and modern people and an understanding that most things we have today are the direct result of earlier times and people.  They also develop wonder, gratitude, a sense of purpose, and a feeling of responsibility to others, to the earth, and to future generations.

Going Out Program

The elementary curriculum extends the classroom to include the local community.  Montessori classrooms are designed to be “purposefully limited” in such a way that requires children to seek experts and access resources within the community.  Children work in small groups of 2-4 to plan all aspects of the outing (transportation, scheduling and financing). While supervised by an adult, children navigate community interactions and problem solve various quandaries without interference from the adult.  These outings instill a sense independence and connection to the community.

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT US

I love, love, love this school! My family was looking for an alternative education for our son and he's been here since kindergarten (3 years now). We plan to keep him here as long as possible. The staff is friendly, small campus, one-on-one attention, and they do what they can to make it affordable for families. We'd highly recommend them to West Valley families.

Such an amazing school! My 4yr son has sensory issues and this school has been amazing for him. He has opened up significantly and has just grown so much because of the teachers and staff at this school. The fact that I am able to have a constant communication with his teachers as well as the option to be fully involved with this school makes it a perfect choice for me and my family.

My two children love going to school every day... I only wish she would have gone here sooner. It is an amazing school that does not apply the one size fits all rule to education.
