The Toddler Program is based on the philosophy that the very young child is eager to learn. Our intention is to provide an environment and activities which stimulate and encourage the child. Our goals are to have happy children, who achieve a sense of order and work independently
The gross motor area of the room offers space for activities to help in the development movement and muscle control, as well as a sense of spatial understanding. Fine motor skills are encouraged by experimenting with manipulative materials in the classroom. Social skills are enhanced by group snack, story and music time, and circle time.
The 3 to 6 Program encompasses children learning side by side developing a sense of order, concentration, coordination and independence. The children work in language, math, sensorial, geography and science. Music and art are integral parts of all our programs. The commitment to our three-year sequence will lay an excellent foundation for going on to the elementary program. Incorporation of a Montessori Peace Education encourages the development of peaceful citizens of the world.
The Extended Day Program continually teaches children who are 4-5 years old. For those children who are 5 by December 1st, this year will be considered their Kindergarten year. Their morning is spent with the multi-age group, receiving lessons, working independently or in small groups, and helping the younger children. Statistics show that when an older child helps a younger child, it reinforces their academic knowledge and enhances self- esteem and self- confidence.
After the lunch and recess period, the extended academic day resumes. Time is build in for special projects, class trips, and studies indicative to the interests of the more sophisticated works of the Montessori sequence.
Addition curriculum activities include:
- Computer Lab
- Physical Education
At Trinity Montessori part of our Extended Academic Day Curriculum Is dedicated to the study of the heritage of their classmates. The children investigate their family roots, study geography, customs, food and the music from each child's family. The study is culminated by an international celebration where the children wear costumes, perform native dances and songs, and demonstrate a great respect for the cultures and nationalities from all around the world.
The Elementary Program consists of lower and upper elementary classrooms. At each level you can find a continuing, 3 year, thematic curriculum that is built on the foundations of the primary. It encourages children to pursue their interests and continue making responsible choices for self-motivated instruction.
