Our Preschool program consists of certified Montessori teachers and assistant teachers degreed and experienced in early childhood education.
Montessori equipment is used under the direction of the certified teachers to provide individualized, small group, and classroom activities for the children we serve. Hope’s mixed age groups of 2 ½ -6 years old incorporates Maria Montessori’s philosophy of vertical age grouping. This gives the older children the opportunity to help and guide the younger children, boosting their self-esteem and allowing them to benefit from peer to peer learning.
The Montessori preschool classroom allows children to work at a challenging level yet at their own pace, focusing on the whole child. Through self-correcting materials, children gain independence and a sense of accomplishment as they progress through the Montessori curriculum.
