TODDLER & EARLY CHILDHOOD CLASSROOMS
(AGES 18 MONTHS - 6 YRS)
Toddler Community: Our toddler community is rich with vocabulary, primarily English and Spanish. Toddler aged children are in a period of development that thrives upon the acquisition of language. During this unique period of time, children develop vocabulary and comprehend the meaning of words, from any spoken language! Guides in our toddler community speak interchangeably, between English and their native language. Early Childhood Community: Children of our Early Childhood community are exposed to many different languages. The Montessori curriculum is presented in English, by the lead guide, and assistant guides primarily communicate with children in their native language, which could consist of Spanish, Hindi, Arabic, Russian, etc. (depending on classroom placement). Additionally, Spanish class begins at the Early Childhood level, occurring twice weekly, during their community group time. Spanish class is taught by a native Spanish speaker and offers an introduction to vocabulary, songs and literature.
(1ST - 6TH GRADE)
Spanish and English are the two primary languages of the Elementary Community. Lessons with the Montessori materials are presented primarily in English (with exception of the Spanish language materials), and guides converse primarily in Spanish. All guides are bilingual in English and Spanish, with Spanish being their native language. Additionally, Spanish class is included in the weekly “specials” schedule, in addition to PE, Art, Music and Nature Education.
