Village Montessori Academy
Village Montessori Academy, founded in 1986, offers the finest traditional Montessori environment for preschool and kindergarten children between the ages of two and six years of age.
Quality and excellence are of utmost importance and are apparent in the physical atmosphere of the academy, the staff, the programs and the totally prepared environment of the child.
The Montessori program provides an extraordinarily rich curriculum of Practical Life skills, Sensorial exploration, Mathematics, Language, Science, History, Geography, Music, Art, Movement, Emotional, Social and Physical development.
Children are able to progress ahead at their own, individual rate of development, in a loving, stress-free atmosphere.
The classes are un-graded and provide cross-age grouping. The Montessori directress works with the children individually, in small groups, and occasionally in a collective group.
The Montessori curriculum is designed to meet the specific needs of the individual child.
A lovely balance, built into the curriculum, provides for the social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and academic needs of each child.
