Pre-School Room
Where daily exercises such as pouring,
spooning, washing, sweeping and food

materials designed to represent numbers and quantities.  In
our environment, the child can touch numbers and items
while counting.  They develop an early enthusiasm and a
concrete foundation for math.

which the teacher repeats while introducing it. Natural
fascination for words at this age enables the child to

In the Montessori
classroom, you will likely

maps, which help the
children learn about the
world they live in and its
surroundings.  Many hands
on materials are in these
areas for the child to explore
and discover.   
ART and MUSIC   
Art in this environment
strives to maintain the
great joy the child
finds in creating
something of his own.

classroom in listening,
