Class Sessions

We offer four options to meet the unique developmental needs of each child. Children need different things at different periods of development. Our classes are structured to give children what they need at each level. The Assistant Head of School oversees admissions and enrollment and makes all class placements.

Class DescriptionA highly nurturing beginning class for toddlers with a special focus on separation and toileting. An introductory preschool class for the young preschooler who will benefit from a smaller environment with closer teacher attention. A traditional Montessori pre-
school class for the child who is ready to handle more choice, additional class-mates, and more transitions in a larger learning environment.
A perfect class for (1) the preschooler who is ready for a longer school day, or (2) the Pre-K or TK child. The two groups are divided at work time to support each age-group's specific learning needs. The longer day offers both groups time for expanded learning and enriched socialization.
