PRESCHOOL to KINDERGARTEN (Ages 3-6)
We have three classrooms serving children in preschool and Kindergarten. The preschool children are part of the tuition-based public program, and the Kindergartners are part of the state-funded public Charter school. The MVM Primary program is organized to complement the natural development of children aged 3-6, is a structured, peaceful environment encouraging independence, concentration, order, coordination and the joy for learning. Each child’s abilities and interests are nurtured and respected through the guidance of trained Montessori teachers; children are encouraged to move through our Montessori curriculum at their own pace in uninterrupted work cycles. Self-correcting Montessori lessons and multi-sensory materials move from concrete to abstract, and our students are provided extensive activities in Practical Life, Peace Education, Language, Sensorial, Math, Geography/ Cultural and Science. Older children are role models for younger while younger children teach older friends to be mentors and leaders. Within a supportive, fun community of younger and older, our authentic 3-6 Montessori program is a steppingstone for joyful, self-actualized, self-disciplined, kind, respectful, helpful and peaceful children. At MVM we begin using the MAPS assessment tool with our Kinders, as well as introducing them to the Orton Gillingham program which focuses on small group direct instruction to support the Montessori language materials.
