• Preschool Shelf Work with Montessori Learning Trays

    Learning trays are an integral part of Montessori school classrooms. In this video, see an example of a learning tray for a toddler program in a Montessori classroom that is designed to give three-year-old hands-on learning experiences.

    Montessori is built on the understanding that children are inspired to learn through age-appropriate, self-guided experiences that are curated by the teacher. The learning trays in this video combine tactile experiences, matching, and lessons that exercise fine motor skills. The child can move through these lessons at his or her own pace until they are mastered.

  • Nature Studies in Montessori Education

    Part of the Montessori educational philosophy is that children should interact with the natural world to build a connection with the world around them. Nature studies are a means for Montessori schools to embrace this principle and help kids get hands-on interactions with nature. At The Montessori School, outdoor gardening is part of our enrichment curriculum and is one avenue we use to incorporate nature studies into our classrooms.

    Our gardening activities are done both indoors and outdoors so children have the flexibility to explore all of their interests in botany. Our outdoor garden is organic and allows children to grow everything from flowers to vegetables we use in cooking projects. Students also get hands-on experience with seeds, trees, leaves, and other natural elements as part of their studies.

    At The Montessori School, we have a full range of enrichment activities , including gardening, music, and fine art. We’re happy to answer all of your questions about our Montessori school curriculum. Our North Dallas location can be reached at (469) 685-1732, or call our Allen campus at (972) 908-5055.

  • Spotlight on Our Early Infant Program’s Daily Activities

    The Montessori School is dedicated to giving children a complete education and experience from six weeks of age through 6 th grade. Our early infant program is filled with a highly interactive, yet soothing, environment to help infants develop the necessary skills and understanding for a successful childhood. Let’s take a look at the daily activities we provide for our infant students.

    Infants from six weeks to twelve months in age are exposed to soft music, smiling faces, educational toys, and various activities. Our activities include interaction with other babies, infant exercises, and object recognition. These activities help babies to develop their fine and gross motor skills, which will encourage greater movement and physical understanding as they age. Our teachers also expose the babies to sign language, speech, song, books, and play to further develop their social interaction and future educational success.

    The early infant program is only available at our Montessori School in Allen, Texas. However, all Montessori schools offer a wide range of programs and activities for children. Please call The Montessori School location in Allen at (972) 727-2800. Our North Dallas campus can be reached at (972) 985-8844.
