Sensorial Development

Through the use of specially designed Montessori Apparatus, the child works with the properties of color, order, weight and dimension. Hand-eye coordination, which is necessary in both reading and writing, is highly developed within these exercises

Language

This area includes the development of vocabulary, writing, reading, grammar and comprehension. The children begin work with phonics and progress into blending words and sentence structure, and then into reading books and writing stories. Library and storytelling are also a part of this program.

Mathematics

Basically, the children are introduced to the understanding of the mathematical processes through the use of concrete materials rather than abstract memorization of rules. They begin with a quantitative knowledge of numbers up to ten, and then proceed to work with higher numbers. They begin to explore in the concrete the functions of addition, subtraction.

The music time consists of finger plays, children's songs and movement to music. The children are also introduced to Spanish.
