Practical Life

Through practical life activities, children acquire many daily living skills: preparing food, fastening clothes and caring for their environment. These activities also help children extend their powers of concentration and develop coordinated movements. When children learn to do things for themselves, it builds their confidence.

Sensorial Activities

Sensorial activities help children to develop and refine their five senses. Children learn to differentiate between sizes, shapes, sounds, colors, textures, smells, depths, and tastes. These skills help form connections in the brain, which lead to the development of language and motor skills.


Both spoken and written language are incorporated into our environments. We work on auditory discrimination between letter sounds and blends as well as the symbol recognition that leads to reading and advanced vocabulary.


Mathematics in our Montessori environments begins with using hands-on methods to encourage the understanding of numeration and place values. Advanced materials include beads, place values, and the "snake game."


Science lessons in our Montessori environments introduce a variety of topics to our students. They learn to wonder about the world around them. Zoology, botany, chemistry, environmental science, and physics are introduced.

Cultural Studies

Our students learn about the many cultures around the world as well as the individual cultures and dynamics of their own communities. These lessons allow students to differentiate between similarities and differences, both locally and globally.
