“We are excited to announce that we have a few spots available to accept new students for the fall,” said Edith Gruener, Director of Montessori American School. “Space is very limited, however, parents who take advantage of the February enrollment now, will have the best chance of reserving a spot for their child. After February, there may still be opportunities to enroll your child, but it is on a first come, first served basis, and classes typically fill up very quickly.”
Children enrolled at Montessori American School are provided with an educational curriculum, which adheres to the philosophies of Maria Montessori. Classrooms are structured by multi-aged grouping, based on periods of development.
“The experience a child will have at Montessori American School is above and beyond the typical perception of a preschool and Kindergarten classroom,” adds Gruener. "Our classrooms provide a family-like setting, which allows each child to experience a variety of roles. If a child is the youngest in the group, they learn from the older children. They will then begin to assume greater responsibility as the “middle” children, and are role models when they become the oldest in the classroom setting. This provides them a unique opportunity to learn from and teach each other."
In addition to the standard Montessori curriculum, in 2011 Montessori American School implemented new enrichment programs to provide an even broader educational experience. For children ages 2-6 who are enrolled in the school, the following four enrichment classes (http://www.montessoriamerican.com/
