Montessori Preschool

Slide background

While introducing fundamental concepts in phonics, math, and global studies, Beginnings’ Montessori Primary program helps children develop good habits, independence and skills essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.

This wonderful documentary, “Montessori: Learning for Life” directed by Paul Dowie in 2002, is a glimpse inside the Montessori school and the philosophy behind the Montessori education.

The Primary environment is filled with realistic models of objects for naming and describing as this reinforces language development. Materials that are made to manipulate provide opportunities for fine motor development. Everyday chores like sweeping and washing develop large motor skills and teach children a respect for their environment and their world. Montessori is not just an educational method. It is a way of life. A journey that unfolds the human potential.

Beginnings Primary Program develops a young student’s:

  • Positive attitude toward school and learning
  • Observation and listening skills
  • Inner discipline and sense of order
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Socially appropriate behavior
