At Brookhills Montessori School, our curriculum is based on the idea that each child is a unique individual. Our focus is on meeting each child’s developmental, social, emotional, intellectual, and educational needs. We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences.
Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a wide range of developmental levels. Learning centers allow children the opportunity to explore, problem-solve, investigate, work together as a team, and meet with success. Children are exposed to whole group work, small groups, and individual instruction each day.
Our thematic-based curriculum focuses on reading, writing, language, math, science, social studies, art, music, and physical fitness activities. Directresses and assistants spend time listening to and talking with children, helping children reflect on their daily learning. The positive interactions between teachers and students encourage the development of emotional, linguistic, and social skills, leading to a strong sense of self and self-esteem. With a range of child-centered activities and a warm, safe, and nurturing environment, children have every opportunity to have fun while learning.
We celebrate the cultural diversity of Brookhills Montessori School children and families, and we encourage multicultural learning through respect, understanding, and appreciation.
Brookhills Montessori School understands that the first six years of life is an essential time for a child’s development. We provide every child with a safe, secure environment and a lot of warm adult interaction. This encourages infants to develop, physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally
