Classrooms

Montessori materials are referred to as "work"

The work in our classrooms is all hands-on, concrete materials. The work is kept on the shelves so the children can access it easily and return it when completed. Although there are many pieces of work on our shelves, the child chooses the work after a group lesson has been given by the teacher. This ensures that the child is choosing work that is appropriate for their developmental level. The shelves in our classrooms are divided into different content areas: Language, Math, Sensorial, Cultural, Practical Life, and Writing.Our curriculum is based on the academic and social needs of each child. This means your child will receive an individualized academic education. Each child is able to move at his/her own pace. The sky’s the limit!

Work Shelves

Language Shelf

The Language Shelf contains reading readiness work, phonological awareness work, letter identification work, beginning sounds work, spelling, and reading.

Math Shelf

The Math Shelf is made up of pre-math skills, number identification, making sets, place value, decimal system, addition, subtraction, money, and fractions.

Culture Shelf

The Culture Shelf (science and social studies) begins with learning about our bodies, the animal and plant kingdoms, our earth, our galaxy, time, physical science, historical events and people.

Sensorial Shelf

The Sensorial Shelf is where children train their senses to have visual, auditory, tactile and spatial awareness. Sensorial work includes understanding size and size order, two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes and geometry.

Practical Life Shelf

The Practical Life Shelf is where children practice care of self, care of our environment, grace and courtesy and everyday living skills that allow children to be self-sufficient. Practical life lessons include sweeping, spooning, tweezing, pouring, sewing, dressing frames, cutting, gluing and perforating. Practical Life work emphasizes developing fine motor skills.

Benefits of Montessori

Montessori Method
  •  The teacher has an unobtrusive role in classroom activity; the child is an active participant in learning. Child sets own learning pace to internalize information.
  • Environment and method encourage internal self-discipline.
  • Children are encouraged to teach, collaborate, and help each other.
  • The child chooses own work from interests and abilities and works as long as she/he wishes on the chosen project.
  • Child spots own errors through feedback from the material.
  • Children work where she/he is comfortable, moves around and talks at will (yet does not disturbs the work of others); group work is voluntary and negotiable.
Traditional Daycare
  •  The teacher has domain, active role in classroom activity; the child is a passive participant in learning. Instruction pace usually set by group norm or teacher.
  • The teacher acts as primary enforcer of external discipline.
  • Most teaching is done by teacher and collaboration is discouraged.
  • Curriculum structured for the child with little regard for child’s interests and is given a specific time limit for work.
  • If work is corrected, errors usually pointed out by the teacher.
  • Children usually assigned their own chair in daycare; encouraged to sit still and listen during group sessions.

We love CMS! One year in and we have no desire to find another preschool. Our daughter loves going to school! The teachers have been very stable since we started and that means so much to my family! Looking forward to the next two years before starting K.

My son has been there for going on 2 years and will graduate this year. I have seen him grow so much in this time. The teachers communicate well and are always friendly. They take very seriously actually teaching children instead of "babysitting" them. My son can read and spell now and he just turned 5. We will miss CMS
