Welcome to our 2020–2021 School Year!
Please review our new protocols and our Covid-19 Safety Plan. You will need to fill out Covid-19 Daily Questionnaire each day your child attends school. Social distancing, temperature check and masks are required to enter the classroom. Please keep an extra face mask in your child’s backpack. You can find our new protocols and supply list on the Parent’s Newsletter page and also on the Registration page. We appreciate your cooperation with our new guidelines.
If the need should arise for early drop-off, we now offer that option. We ask that you make arrangements in advance so we can check teacher’s availability.
What We Are Learning: January
During the month of January, we will be learning about animals, hibernation, and migration. Traditionally, January has been a very productive month for the children. The children are usually, happy to be back at school, working eagerly after the Holiday break. They look forward to seeing their friends, teachers and getting back to their work and routine. Our program will continue with the Pre-Kindergarteners coming together after circle time using the Language and Math materials. Anything you can do to help sharpen their fine motor skills will help your child’s development. This will aid them in holding a pencil. Here are a few suggestions: bead stringing, cutting, gluing, when painting using a thin paint brush. Also, please try to refrain from using crayons, but instead colored pencils, as this will support the proper writing method.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: With careful consideration and consultation with the many school districts we serve, we have made the decision to close for two full weeks, from 1/4/21through 1/18/21. Find more info in our Letter to Parents.
School will reopen Tuesday, January 19th.

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.
