The Infant & Toddler program provides a nurturing, educational environment for children ages eight weeks through three years old. Our program offers a curriculum that supports the development of independence and self-care skills while also delivering a continuity of care to encourage trusting relationships between children and their teachers. Our Infant & Toddler program strives to enhance development in four major areas: movement, independence, language and self-regulation. This is presented to the children through Montessori materials in the prepared learning environment, as well as regular instruction in Physical Education, Art and Music.

Children's House is a specially designed, three year, individualized program where the developmental needs of children ages three to six can be met and nurtured. The curriculum includes work in math, language, science, geography, sensorial, and practical life. The goals of the program are to develop the child's self-esteem, independence, order, balance, gross and fine motor coordination, concentration, and respect for self, others and the environment. This holistic curriculum allows the child to experience the joy of learning and the time to enjoy the process, while ensuring the development of self-esteem and providing the experiences from which children create their knowledge. Students practice skills of self-initiation, problem-solving, working cooperatively, and participating in community service.

The Elementary prepared environment is designed for six through twelve-year-old children. This curriculum is notable for both its academic rigor and breadth of content. The impressive achievements of the typical Montessori Elementary student are made possible by the child's free access to a range of stimulating academic and cultural materials and through opportunities for self-directed research. Montessori Elementary programs typically strive to allow children involvement in their local communities through extensive field trips and community service projects. Through this involvement, children can develop the awareness of self, community, and culture, and that is a cornerstone of Montessori education.
