Pre-Primary Program - Under 3 years
In Pre-Primary Program, basic motor coordination and language development are cultivated while the individual personality is respected. The environment for the Pre-Primary is very nurturing with a calm community as these children are often experiencing their first interactions with other children.
Much of the materials in the Pre-Primary classroom serve as a bridge to the work done in the Primary classes. The children learn to focus on a particular task, return their materials to their proper place when finished and participate in a cooperative group. Vocal work with counting acts as an establishment for later math work. Also, at this age, these children are exploding into speech; therefore we provide them with an abundance of stories and songs.
The Montessori Pre-Primary class provides children under three-years old with experiences that support the development of their confidence and independence. This environment helps the children feel comfortable when they enter the much larger three to six years old program.
Primary Program - 3 years through 6 years
The Prepared Environment of the Primary Classroom is designed to meet the specific needs and tendencies of children, 3-6 years of age. In this environment the children are given the opportunity to develop themselves individually within the
grounds of a social community. The materials and lessons are categorized under five areas, which are all interrelated to help children achieve maximum success.
In the Montessori environment, children are exposed to a variety of experiences that enrich their academic experience and develop the whole person. The following enrichment programs are offered to all toddler and primary class children:
The music materials provide a vehicle for self-expression, self-understanding, self-confidence, creative problem solving and motivation. Children create their own rhythms and incorporate music into other areas of the classroom. The music program is an exciting and fun curriculum taught by professional music teachers. Through singing, movement, speaking, body sound rhythms, playing simple melody instruments and percussion instruments with music scores and improvisation, children learn to love the joys of music. Music programs will be provided for all the children at the Splendor Bilingual Montessori in addition to the regularly scheduled classes and various solo instrumental classes will also be offered throughout the year.
The Physical Education program gives children the opportunity to learn cooperative games and basic sports in a fun and interactive atmosphere. Positive encouragement, teamwork, problem solving, good sportsmanship, and physical exercise are key components in our Physical Education program. They can also continue to practice self-respect and respect for one another.
After School Programs
Our after school environment seeks to complement the children’s Montessori experience and give them more exposure to educational toys (i.e. Legos', dolls, blocks). The pace of the after school programs is intentionally more relaxed with time for free play and outdoor activities. Children in after-care can enjoy a variety of other optional programs.
