Allen Montessori School
The goal of The Montessori School’s Elementary Program is to empower children to become confident and competent students. Our elementary classroom, designed for children ages 6-9, is a unique work environment in which instruction begins with concrete realities, adding on difficulty at a time, moving sequentially into abstract theory.
The development of critical thinking skills occur naturally in this type of environment. Active learning with hands-on tasks inhibit the growth of social skills, reflection, and the ability to “figure things out”—qualities that are vital throughout our lives.
This is also the age when the child develops their moral compass, learning right and wrong. The child will determine what is “good”, “bad”, “fair” and “not fair”, striving to discover how he can play an important and meaningful role in life.
The Montessori School’s Elementary Curriculum consists of:
- Language Arts
- Social Studies
- Foreign Language
- Science/Nature Studies including Botany & Zoology
- Music Arts
Our elementary children are given opportunities to work together or alone to pursue individual or group interests. Their teacher facilitates, creativity, independent thinking, and personal responsibility.
