The child at Jonathan Montessori may enter the program at various times throughout the school year. Each child begins gradually, allowing them to develop a relationship with the staff, acquire new friendships and become comfortable in their new environment. Parents are encouraged to observe and learn about our program, visit with our staff and establish trust as they enroll their child.
This spectrum of activities - which includes food preparation, gardening, dressing skills and caring for the classroom environment - integrates the child into the community and fosters a sense of independence at the same time.
The children use their senses to explore the physical properties of our world, such as color, shape and size. Activities include matching bell sounds, comparing textures, colors and temperatures, and constructing geometric figures.
The children learn sounds, letters, and play language games. Later they will begin to write stories phonetically and then to read words, sentences and books.
Children explore large mathematical concepts with beautiful, concrete visual aids. Math is fun as children play games with the four basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
Music from around the world, art activities, picture books and puzzle maps open doors for the child into the worlds of plants and animals, as well as the diversity of human community.
