APRIL THEME: Spring
Keeping in mind that every child is unique and learns at a different pace, our staff encourages and teaches your child to focus and to be responsible when completing his or her task. To ensure a fruitful development process, we advocate for a strong support system at home that helps build a foundation to make school more enjoyable for your child. Be confident to know that your child is growing as an individual and learning many lifelong skills such as honesty, respect, focus, problem solving, teamwork, kindness at our school.

This month we are celebrating the nice weather by studying plants and plant life, food that comes from plants and learning about the growth and rebirth of spring. We are also taking opportunities to go outside as much as possible and observe our lovely garden.
Every moment of the day is prepared with the Montessori philosophy in mind: treating the children with respect, offering freedom of choice, and fostering autonomy. We practice and encourage mannerly and gracious social habits. We know that children learn best by doing. Montessori is the active pursuit of many different experiences: physical, emotional, and cognitive. Every element of the day is in keeping with these principles.
This month we will also be taking time to discuss all the changes around us. In the month of April children will be learning about flowers, trees and plants growing and the many colors around us.
Each group of children is a little community in our school. The multi-age grouping of 3, 4 and 5year old greatest opportunity for collaboration and cooperation. By developing a sense of responsibility for themselves and others, children grow in self-discipline and self-esteem.
