Children in the Montessori program learn through experience with hands on material. Each of the three Montessori classes is composed of children age’s three to five. In the spirit of Maria Montessori, emphasis is placed on training in independence and self-motivation, as students are encouraged to choose and complete various learning activities. The program provides for the emotional and intellectual needs of each child and fosters the child's growth in self-awareness as well as an understanding and consideration of the needs of others. Group activities are designed to help the child see herself as a member of the school community.
The Montessori program seeks to develop the child's sense of self-worth as an active learner and member of the school community. Each child learns to assume responsibility, master skills, and solve problems. The classroom environment is designed to stimulate the child's natural sense of wonder and curiosity through opportunities for fun, friendship, vigorous activity, adventure, and quiet reflection. A rich and varied curriculum, including language arts, mathematics, science and social studies, supports and promotes students' intellectual development.
The major areas in the program are practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, science, social studies, geography, music, art, religion, physical education, and Mandarin-Chinese.
