PRESCHOOL

In the Preschool years, the goal of Enrichment Classes is to expand each student’s experience with teamwork, body movement, fine motor skills, and foundational academic learning. Each course is anchored in the child-centered and kinesthetic learning model that defines Montessori, while focusing student learning into a greater context, setting new ideas to song, and connecting understanding to culturally-rich curriculum.
