Description: For the youngest children, Montessori Stepping Stones provides a wonderful first experience of school.
Montessori Stepping Stones builds the foundation for future learning and mastery using The Montessori Method. Your child will receive lots of attention with only eight (8) children in each class.
Through a carefully structured phase-in process, we minimize any separation anxiety for both children and their parents. The consequence: children develop a positive, affirming attitude about school.
Stepping Stones develops aspects of learning needed to foster the independence and curiosity emblematic of a Montessori child. One such aspect is the child’s ability to exercise self-control and negotiate her surroundings -- in Montessori we call this Practical Life.
Montessori also emphasizes that children learn through their sensory experiences (they see, hear and feel the sound and shape of letters to build a foundation for reading and writing; they work on counting objects as a prelude to math) – in Montessori we call this Sensorial.
In the Stepping Stones classroom, much time is spent on Practical Life and Sensorial. Through carefully designed activities, and using special Montessori materials and processes, children quickly build a strong developmental foundation both academically and socially.
