Claire’s Montessori International Academy offers programs from Infants through Elementary (ages 6 – 12). Our Early Childhood Programs for Infants, Toddlers, and Primary (ages 3 – 6) provide a peaceful and happy school environment that allows children to develop social skills, independence, emotional awareness, self-respect, and respect for others. Our Montessori based learning programs are specifically designed for your child’s unique needs and abilities. Our Elementary Program emphasizes on child – centered education where children are encouraged to develop academic and life - long skills. Our curriculum and instruction is designed for children to have a natural inclination to learning and reach towards abstraction in higher level skills.
Natural Learning Tendencies:
Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that children’s natural learning tendencies unfolded in three year learning spans (ages 0 – 3, 3 – 6, 6 – 9, 9 – 12, etc.). We support this natural cycle of development by applying consistent social, emotional, and academic approaches for the respective learning span as children move up through our programs.
Hands – On & Self – Directed Choices:
Our classrooms offer diverse and engaging instructional materials, pictures, and activities designed to appeal to your child’s natural sense of wonder and strengthen problem – solving abilities. Importantly, our well – established schedules allow uninterrupted periods of concentrated work in a peaceful and supportive learning environment.
Relevance & Routine:
As teachers and parents, we work together to support your child’s growth and healthy development. Our curriculum is relevant to each child and based on the new discoveries they are making every day. Our teachers are eager to understand your needs and will partner with you by sharing the learning experiences and special moments with you for your child’s continued expansion outside of school. As your child grows, so does his or her opportunity for learning. We maintain a structured routine that makes time for the flexibility your child’ needs for personal growth.
