This Past June….

June marked the start of our summer season and we had plenty of activities to start celebrating.  We started the month off with our Pajama Day!    Then, we kicked off summer with yummy hot dogs. Ms. Sharika’s class made exciting firecrackers.  Fruit was one of the many topics discussed in Ms. Malini’s class.  Ms. Jackie’s class made crab and octopus masks and paraded around the playground.  We ended the month with a few celebration shows! Ms. Ali, Ms. Denise, and Ms. Sunita’s classes worked very hard and did an amazing job with their 4th of July performances.

Why the Montessori Method?…


Meeting the Needs of Your Child
The Montessori Method is a hands-on, prepared environment that is always growing at a child’s own pace. A Montessori environment is an attempt, in an orderly fashion, to meet the multiple needs of each child and the needs of different types of children.  Educating children in an atmosphere where their need for time, space, support, and stimulation can be met is just one of the many benefits of the Montessori Method.
