A Guide to Our Enrichment Curriculum

Education is a delightful journey that lasts a lifetime. Here at The Montessori School, it’s our privilege to facilitate the early years of your child’s education. Children from six weeks through sixth grade explore our curriculum in a self-directed, self-paced manner that sparks their love of learning. Our elementary school students enjoy our enrichment curriculum.

Computer Instruction

All primary and elementary school students can learn how to use computers in our multimedia lab. They begin by learning basic mouse and keyboarding skills. Then, students advance in their computer literacy skills with activities that correspond with our Montessori curriculum. All computer use at our school is dependent upon each individual student’s social maturity level.

Outdoor Gardening

Students at The Montessori School develop a better understanding of the natural world and their roles as its stewards with daily gardening activities. The organic outdoor garden is located next to our science lab. Here, students develop their knowledge of botany as they grow vegetables and flowers. We firmly believe that outdoor work is essential for a child’s healthy development, as nature helps individuals feel grounded and peaceful.

Cooking

The fresh vegetables our students grow in our organic garden are used for our culinary activities. Our learning kitchen offers activities for children of all ability levels. Here, students broaden their understanding of academic topics, including chemistry, math, and physics.

Music Instruction

The creative process is important to the Montessori approach. Students learn musical literacy and appreciation through daily activities, including singing, composing, and performing. Our regular school performances allow students to feel confident on the stage.

Science Experimentation

The Montessori School features a well-equipped science lab. Here, our students work on hands-on science experiments. They develop an understanding of scientific methodology and processes as they conduct their own experiments.

Fine Arts Studio

In our fine arts studio, the emphasis is on the joy of creation, rather than the final result. Students explore a variety of media types, including collage, painting, printmaking, and color mixing. They learn to feel self-confident in their creative expressions and to support and respect the artistic endeavors of their peers.
