WELCOME TO THE LOWER SCHOOL
Pre-K / Grand Montessori
Our PreK/Grand Montessori curriculum is designed with every aspect of a child’s development in mind. Students are active participants in developing their phonemic awareness skills whether it is by listening to their teacher read or practicing their letter sounds by hearing jingles and singing along. While exploring their environment they learn shapes, sizes, and enjoy the pleasure of counting and sorting all in the context of a nurturing and loving classroom with teachers who model their Christian faith.
Our kindergarten curriculum is carefully structured and designed to capitalize on young minds whose natural curiosity prepares them with a readiness to learn, learn, and learn! Just the right balance of structure and exploration is provided throughout the day allowing for this age child to reach his or her maximum potential in all areas of development.
Our first-grade curricula builds on the solid foundation of phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, rich literature read by the teacher, and takes it to the next level–each child reading at his or her determined level with close checks on fluency and comprehension. Math concepts are taught in the context of “hands-on” manipulatives while educational games and math workshops make learning fun!
