"A QUALITY MONTESSORI CLASSROOM HAS A BUSY, PRODUCTIVE ATMOSPHERE WHERE JOY AND RESPECT ABOUND"
2.5 hours Montessori
8:45-11:15 or 12:45-3:15
This class is a traditional preschool class. Class time of 2 1/2 hours is geared towards younger children who are not fully toilet trained or children just starting preschool. During this class children are introduced to montessori materials and methods, depending on where they are at. They are taught grace and courtesy as well as manners and respect. In this class children are getting use to classroom routine and consistency.
This class helps children to become confident and builds trust and independence within a child."I can stay on my own and mom/dad will come and pick me up."
4 hours Montessori
8:45-12:45 or 11:15-3:15
This class is considered an extended day to a traditional 2 1/2 hour preschool day. The children spend the first part of the class with their 2 1/2 hour friends and this class is for children who are ready to spend longer periods of time with out their parents. It includes a lunch time and extra curricular activities after lunch such as; science experiments, sewing, bigger art projects, etc. This program is for children who are toilet trained, can eat their lunch on their own and for children that can
dress/undress themselves as well as for children that don't require naps.
In most of the cases this class is to prepare the child for Junior kindergarten/ kindergarten.
6.5 hours Junior Kindergarten Montessori Program
Junior Kindergarten is our preschool long
extended-day program for 4 and 5 year old children. It consists of learning, play and exploration! This program is only for children who are going to attend kindergarten
Junior Kindergarten helps children learn to have a lunch at school as well as it prepares
them for the whole day kindergarten.
In this six and a half hour program children engage in different activities during the long day at school and this includes;
morning class and a variety of afternoon enrichment activities in a nurturing school setting.
This is an ideal way for preschool children who are toilet trained and do not require an afternoon nap to become more independent in the school setting.
Considering that we have limited space and our preschool has morning and afternoon
class, Junior Kindergarten is only available if, at the time of registration, there is a space
available in both classes.
Separation anxiety is very common for children who are starting preschool. For most of them it is the first time staying somewhere without their parents. That is why we believe that gradual entry is very important no matter which program you choose. It reassures the child that it is safe to stay at preschool, that preschool is fun and most of all that mom/dad are coming back to pick them up.
Every Child is required to have an gradual entry when he/she joins our preschool.
All our preschool programs are available:
-Monday to Wednesday( 3 day) or
-Monday to Thursday (4 day)
Drop in program is available for children that are already registered at our school.
Arrangements have to be made a few days ahead.
