Curriculum

 

Our classrooms are spacious and well-equipped with specially designed Montessori materials.  These materials are divided into the five Montessori areas:

 

  • Practical Life materials help the child master the day-to-day needs of taking care of him/herself and his/her environment, such as dressing, pouring, and washing.

  • Sensorial materials aid the child in his/her powers of observation and discrimination of the senses, such as discriminating colors, sizes, shapes, textures and sounds.

  • Language materials promote reading, writing, expression and comprehension primarily through phonics, reading/writing mechanics, handwriting development and self-expression.

  • Mathematics materials begin with the concrete understanding of quantity, symbol, and the four operations (+, -, ×, ÷); and progress toward the goal of using these concepts without the aid of Montessori materials.

  • Culture is comprised of activities in geography, science, music, art, etc. These various activities provide the child with the opportunity to learn more about the world around him. The Montessori curriculum emphasizes the development of the whole child within a helpful, respectful and cooperative community, helping the child achieve his/her full potential.

 

In addition to the core Montessori curriculum, we offer additional opportunities for our students to enjoy the outdoors and develop additional skills, through:

  • Enrichment Classes  - Music & French

  • Outdoor play - MCS offers a large playground, including swings, play equipment, a sandbox with toys as well as open space, all of which aid the development of the child’s gross motor skills.

 

MCS encourages all parents to take advantage of our unique, one-way observation windows that allow you to observe the classes any time without any disruptions.
