Primary Classrooms at Alpha Montessori

The Preschool classroom for children between the ages of three to six is being carefully prepared so that the classroom environment encourages children to learn individually, at their own pace. Your child has extraordinary powers of mind. He or she possesses once-in-a-lifetime ability to simply absorb information from his or her environment, like a sponge. Dr. Montessori called this phenomenon "the absorbent mind".

  • Our Primary Classrooms are prepared with a dynamic learning environment with a wealth of concrete, manipulative learning materials that encourage the child to discover and learn throughout this limited period of her life.
  • One of the most striking aspects of the Preschool classroom is its peacefulness. There is a deep sense of respect from the children towards others and from the teachers toward the children.
  • Through "grace and courtesy" exercises, we teach children how to problem solve conflicts, how to act politely in varying situations and how to be kind and helpful to their friends. The result is a cohesive community of young children.

Primary Teachers at Alpha Montessori

Our Montessori teachers for Primary Program are trained to observe each individual child and to put him/her in touch with things she/he is most interested in learning. As a result, the child experiences immense joy, satisfaction, and excitement about learning.

To keep Parents aware of their child's growth and happenings, we strive to communicate with parents often about their child's progress with weekly and daily reports detailing activities, their learning & progress.

Primary Learning in Alpha Montessori

The multi-age classroom allows younger children to have role models and older children opportunities for leadership. Chronologically age grouping children, like traditional education does, fosters leadership based on outgoing personalities. In the Montessori preschool classroom, even the shyest five-year-old is thrust into a leadership role, because the younger children look up to them and ask for their help and assistance.

  • The youngest child fills his/her days with activities centered on "Practical Life". Here, the child learns to sweep, bake, scrub, polish and care for all things in the environment.
  • They experiment with sensorial materials that educate her visual, auditory and tactile senses.
  • They play vocabulary sound games and sings and dances when children gather for group activities.
  • As the child progresses in his experiences, he/she is introduced to sounds and symbols which lay the groundwork for reading and writing in the future.
  • The child is introduced to numbers and the decimal system – with the most amazing concrete materials to show him the way.
  • They learn about land and water forms, geometric figures, the political countries of the world.
  • They learn about the parts of plants and animals and about music and art – at their own pace, in their own time.

It is during his third year (the traditional new entrants or year one) that everything comes to fruition for the child. Reading, writing, and mathematical understanding, blossoms from the many seeds that were planted in the previous two years. The child leaves the program with a strong set of academic skills; but, far more importantly, with the attitude that learning is fun, exciting and boundless.
