Montessori school expands program offerings
by Bonnie McNett
Children’s Meeting House Montessori School (CMH) is pleased to launch a new preschool program for three and four year olds. This new program is specially designed for young children who are not ready for a full week of pre-school. The students would attend school Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays and would receive guidance and instruction from highly trained, certified Montessori teacher.
Parents can choose either half day or full day options. Interim Director Casey Reed says, “The program is unique in that we will be able to provide an authentic Montessori education for these younger children during a less intensive school week, while still preparing them socially, academically and emotionally. The three day a week program is in response to the demand of quality preschool education and today’s busy schedules and allows greater family flexibility.”
CMH Montessori is founded on the education principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, who considered the child’s intellectual, social, physical, and spiritual development. Young children thrive in the thoughtfully prepared classrooms that have hands on materials that facilitate student curiosity, investigation, and independence. CMH Montessori is situated on eight acres with woods, a pond, and flower and vegetable gardens.
