What We Are Learning: April
During the month of April, we will be learning about seeds, plants, flowers, springtime and the life cycle of the chicken, duck, ladybug, butterfly, and frog. We have a lot of exciting things planned for the children this month!
We will watch eggs hatch into chicks! Mrs. Sharon picked up the eggs from Benner Farm on Monday, April 5th. The children will start turning the eggs 2 times each day. The chicks should hatch April 25th–26th. We will watch eggs hatch into ducklings as well! Mrs. Sharon picks up the eggs from Eastport Duck Farm on Friday, April 9th. The children will start turning the eggs 2 times each day. The ducklings will be 19-day old and should hatch April 18th.
The children will be observing the Painted Lady Butterfly Metamorphosis. We will be watching through the fine netting of this pop-up butterfly abode as
Caterpillars shed their skins and form chrysalides, then emerges as beautiful butterflies. We will watch, study, and share the wonders of the butterfly. Butterflies enjoy fresh slices of orange and watermelon if anyone would like to bring some in for the butterflies the day they emerge.
The children will also be observing the life cycle of the ladybug. I will advise you the date of their arrival.

Montessori Children—Young Minds of the Future
The mission of Montessori Children is to develop a well rounded student who is eager to learn, is self-confident, and is a contributing member of society who has the zest and skills for lifelong learning. This will be accomplished in a nurturing prepared environment utilizing a comprehensive preschool level curriculum. Montessori classes place children in multi-age groups, forming communities in which the older children spontaneously share their knowledge with the younger ones.
Our Montessori teachers are prepared to foster all children to reach their fullest potential at their own unique pace with the best practices in efforts aiding the children’s natural learning tendencies as they unfold in this “prepared environment” to aid the most profound young minds of the future.
