School Notes

  • Bloomfield Maples Montessori, established in 1983, has been leading Education and Creativity for over 30 years. Located on nearly three wooded acres in West Bloomfield, the campus provides a beautiful setting that fosters exploration, curiosity and enjoyment. The school philosophy is based on a strong commitment to the principles of respect, integrity, academic excellence and peace education. Each classroom provides a specially prepared environment offering a Montessori program that adheres to Dr. Maria Montessori`s principles of "following the child." The program is tailored to each student`s individual learning style, moving at a natural course of development. Specially designed manipulative materials in a highly academic environment motivate the children to learn. Under the guidance of experienced teachers certified by the American Montessori Society with competent support staff the students in Montessori classrooms learn through self-directed discovery, cultivating concentration, self-discipline and a love of learning.We offer a Toddler Program for students 18 month to three years. Children at this age are enthusiastically seeking out knowledge, and learn quickly and naturally. The furniture and materials are toddler sized, enhancing the freedom to learn. Our curriculum is designed to nurture cognitive development, speech and language, strengthen gross motor and fine motor skills, introduce grace and courtesy lessons, and promote independence. Explosion of language is the hallmark of the toddler years with pre-reading activities along with daily conversation. We offer a safe, warm and loving atmosphere with the emotional needs of the child given a priority.  Our classroom has a 4 to 1 student/teacher ratio with a maximum of 12 students.We offer three Pre-Primary Classrooms for children ages three through kindergarten. Our teachers are specially trained to offer guidance to materials and lessons that will allow the mixed age group of students to learn independently and at "their own pace". Our classrooms are divided into areas to enhance development of fine motor skills, language development and reading, a deep foundation in mathematics, refinement of the senses and a strong commitment to cultural studies. Science through hands on experiments, life cycles and care of plants and animals are integral to our classes. We also offer an enhanced creative program with a special music teacher.  Music appreciation with the use of instruments, singing and movement and Montessori bell materials is encouraged.  Spanish is offered as a second language to all students with an authentic Spanish teacher. Physical health is a regular part of the week with gym and daily outdoor time. Through the three year process encompassing kindergarten, students develop a strong foundation in academics and acquire leadership qualities. Our classrooms typically have an 8 to 1 student/teacher ratio. Beyond the regular day we also offer enrichment classes of Yoga, Dance, Computers Taekwondo and Gymnastics. Students also experience in-house and local off-site field trips to enhance the learning in the classroom.Summer Camp: Our extended school year option is flexible to families and their summer vacation plans.
