- Montessori Program/Curriculum The preschool classrooms at Country Day School are based on the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952).
- Dr. Montessori recognized that all people pass through successive stages of development.
- The learning environment must, therefore, respond to the changing needs of the child from infancy to maturity.
- The Montessori classrooms at Country Day School of Arlington look to help instill a love of learning in children ranging from ages 4 months to 6 years.
- Each child is guided in a self-directed learning environment. If a child is interested in language, then the Montessori teacher will help guide him or her toward the language area.
- Montessori children are guided to embrace their independence, develop respect for self and others, gain control and coordination over their bodies, harness their concentration skills, and develop and/or refine an internal sense of order.
- Children that emerge from the Montessori classrooms should not only be prepared for grade school but will have built a foundation for future growth.
