Sunrise Montessori SchoolKindergartenWe provide education encompassing the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth of each child.
Our SchoolThe Montessori Kindergarten Classroom
Our student-teacher ratio is 1 adult for every 10 children. Most other schools have an average 1:25 ratio. Parent volunteers cannot substitute for trained and experienced Montessori teachers and trained and experienced assistants. We offer them music, art, and P.E. We also offer a very broad cultural area. While the typical kindergartner is learning about “me,” our kindergartners are learning geography, history, geometry, zoology, botany, astronomy, and more.
The last major advantage is that your child works on their on level. When school begins in the fall, your child will be working where they left off in May. However, in a typical traditional kindergarten, instead of being at their own level, children will be grouped and taught what the teacher has decided to teach. Maria Montessori said that children can best learn a particular skill when they are ready to learn it. This is the time on which Montessori teachers capitalize in the classroom. Children may be presented lessons, but if they are not ready to learn the concept they will not learn it, no matter what the teacher does.
Your child is important to us in so many ways. Their personality and capacity to learn is a joyous gift to each of us. As always, our doors are open to you throughout the school year. Come in and ask questions!
