Why 5 days in a Montessori Program?
Most Montessori schools offer a five day program. This age group requires a 5 day repetitive work schedule to best help a child prepare for elementary. Children at this age group that attend school 5 days a week have shown faster growth in all areas of classroom work as well as socially. Children thrive on routine and consistency and my past and present experience working with children only prove that 5 days is much more beneficial to the child.
Children love exploring, discovering, experiencing their environment. Doing this takes time. We live in such a fast paced world that we want results and mastery immediately in a certain time frame. Children do not function like that. They need time to develop, time spent to unfold and become who they are meant to be. The Montessori environment offers quality, purposeful work for children to engage in. Each day they are presented lessons that are age appropriate. We see children spend pockets of time in certain areas, repeating works and activities that they are enjoying. Being in the classroom for five days, allows that process to continue more consistently as well as give an opportunity to choose many interesting work. Being in a Montessori environment for five days allows the natural pace of a child's learning to happen. Additionally, the more time children spend in the Montessori environment, the more time there is to build strong focus and attention skills as well as longer work cycles. This development is critical to children's success as they continue on with their schooling.

About the Montessori Education Program

The Montessori classroom uses concrete materials that are self-correcting and allow the children to learn at their own pace. These materials help the child to see, touch, feel, and freely explore their environments without the teacher's intervention. The Montessori teacher provides individual instruction within set guidelines. The children learn self respect, respect for others, and respect for their environment. Montessori methods and materials promote an inner discipline and self-motivation.

The main focus of a Montessori teacher is to guide the child by providing a well-prepared environment. This environment fosters the creativity and the curiosity of the child and also bolsters the child's self-esteem. The child is able to learn independently and with the help of his peers and teacher. Children receiving Montessori instruction excel academically and socially with the confidence they need to reach their fullest potential.

We are exclusively committed to providing a high quality early learning childhood program.

Meal Program

At St. Mary’s Montessori we believe in quality and therefore we have created a meal program that is healthy for our students. We serve organic milk and NO juices due to the high content of sugar (Even in 100% juice). Our fruits and vegetables are fresh and not from a can. The main meals are all freshly cooked and we do not serve any processed food. We do not contract our meals to outside caterers as we have a chef who comes in daily to prepare the meals at the school, in our well-equipped modern Kitchen. The menus are prepared for each month and are posted in our parent portal.
