School Notes

  • 1. We understand that children learn best through the use of their five senses. Materials are specially designed to develop and refine the five senses. Children can touch, see, hear, smell and even taste what they are learning about.
  • 2. We learn about real things in our classroom. Practical Life activities help children gain independence and learn organizational skills while developing their coordination and concentration. Children prepare for and experience life!
  • 3. Children have freedom to move and explore, learning through hands-on experience. Our classrooms are organized to create a calm, engaging environment.
  • 4. Lessons are presented in a specific order We allow children to choose their own work, respecting that they know what they are most ready to learn and experience (Montessori’s Sensitive Periods for learning).
  • 5. Learning is individualized, with each child working at his/her own pace. We allow children to choose their own work, respecting that they know what they are most ready to learn and experience (Montessori’s Sensitive Periods for learning).
  • 6. We use an integrated language approach in our classrooms. Reading and Writing are taught initially through Montessori’s phonetic approach, and are then used in all aspects of the classroom environment.
  • 7. We offer a positive, hands-on learning experience. Materials are designed so that children can experience success without failure. The goal is a well-adjusted child who has a genuine love of learning!
  • 8. Children learn from experienced and well-trained teachers. The teacher’s role in the infant/toddler environment is to help foster the child’s independence while allowing him to explore and learn.
  • 9. Infant/Toddler classrooms are attractive and inviting. The teacher’s role in the infant/toddler environment is to help foster the child’s independence while allowing him to explore and learn.

My three children attend Weinacker's at Hillcrest and we love this school. We hold dear to our hearts the concepts, ideas, philosophies, teachings, and thoughts of the Montessori ''way of life''. Weinacker's Montessori is a network of a five school system. Before enrolling with the school I read several works by Maria Montessori and on Montessori teaching and feel that Mr. Weinacker and his staff truly believe in these philosophies and teachings and strive to share the benefits of this enlightened way of learning with families, students, and staff
