Woodinville Montessori School - North Creek Campus Photo #6 - Early childhood is a critical time for learning. The 2.5 to 6-year-old child goes about soaking up information and forming impressions and habits that become the basis for all future learning and behavior. Woodinville Montessori's Early Childhood Program is adapted to the unique and transient learning abilities of the young child.
Woodinville Montessori School - North Creek Campus Photo #7 - The Montessori Elementary Program provides the 6-12-year-old child limitless opportunities to apply his great powers of imagination and capacity for hard work. The deeper concentration, increased attention span, good organizational skills and self-direction that are often a result of the Montessori Early Childhood classroom allow these children to take on some rather complex projects.
Woodinville Montessori School - North Creek Campus Photo #8 - Toddlers, 18-36 months, are developing awareness of self. The learning processes within the brain are at their most active and acute stage. They are learning how the world works, gaining independence, and testing social skills. The attributes of self esteem and character are forming.
