The Montessori Method is most effective when following the principle that children are most sensitive and responsive to an environment that is specially designed for their developmental needs, therefore children will be admitted to the program that is developmentally age-appropriate. Our Infant Community is designed to accommodate the needs of children 9 to 18 months of age. The Toddler Component is designed to accommodate the needs of 1 ½ to 3 year olds. While the Primary Program is designed for children 3 to 6 years of age, and includes both a preschool and kindergarten curriculum.
Children typically graduate from our school at approximately 6 years of age and head directly into 1st grade.
Unlike many preschools, Beth Montessori only offers a 5-day program. This important detail is based on the Montessori philosophy that children need a consistent and orderly routine, which gives them a sense of predictability and security. In addition to this, the more time a child spends in the Montessori environment the more they are able to progress and benefit from the learning opportunities that are presented there.
Once an Application for Admission is received, the Administration will follow up to confirm availability.
