Creekside Montessori provides a peaceful and safe learning environment that develops the “Whole Child.” Through the Montessori Curriculum, Monthly Unit Studies, Music Appreciation and Outside Classroom, your child will be learning throughout the "Whole Day!" This is the key to the development of the “Whole Child.”
Throughough the entire Montessori environment, the child hears and is encouraged to use precise vocabulary. The language materials first introduce the child to the marvelous 26 letters of the alpahebet and their phonestic sounds, which later enables the child to begin building words, sentences and whole stories using the moveable alpahabet.
The young child naturally has a mathematical mind. They have the capacity to reason, to calculate, and to estimate. The mathematics materials asset the child in developing their mathematical skills.
Practical Life materials and exercises develop coordination, concentration, organization, and independence while achieving skills tocare for themselves and the environment.
The Sensorial materials provide a range of activities and exerscises for the child to explore. The Montessori materials help the child in learning to differentiate between sizes, shapes, sounds, colors, textures, and taste.
