Primary Program at Montessori in the Park

Primary (age 3-6) children possess a remarkable ability to absorb the world that surrounds them. Maria Montessori believed that the years from three to six are the most critical period for nurturing a child’s natural curiosity and for laying the foundation for future development.

Our goals at Montessori in the Park are to foster independence and to support children in moving toward a mastery of self and the environment. Our classrooms are prepared environments designed to encourage children in their self-directed discovery of the world. Interest-based activities encourage children to develop a love of learning and trust in their own ability to learn.

CELEBRATIONS & TRADITIONS

We celebrate the richness of our cultural diversity at Montessori in the Park! Students and parents are encouraged to educate our community of families through sharing their culture and traditions.

CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

Art, Music, Science and Geography are integrated into the entire cosmic education experience. Living plants, animals and hands-on materials are in the environment, allowing children to develop skills in scientific observation, as well as real-life experience.

LANGUAGE

Montessori in the Park is a language-rich environment. Through a variety of language activities and materials, the children integrate sounds and the associated symbols and begin the processes of reading and writing.

MATHEMATICS

Children begin to explore mathematical relationships by manipulating concrete materials that are designed to isolate a concept and prepare them for abstract reasoning. The goals of the program are for each child to develop a love of numbers, problem-solving strategies, computational skills, and confidence in using numbers in everyday life.

PRACTICAL LIFE

Through Practical Life activities, children acquire many daily living skills: preparing food, fastening clothes and caring for the environment. These activities also help children extend their powers of concentration and refine fine motor development.

SENSORIAL ACTIVITIES

Through interaction with sensorial activities which isolate one quality (such as color, volume or shape) children experience the world through their senses, in a manner that establishes the physical and mental foundation for further learning.

SOCIALIZATION

In Montessori classrooms, children experience the balance between the freedom of the individual and the needs of the group. Responsibility for one’s own behavior, respect for others and care of the environment is modeled and encouraged.

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.
