OUR

Curriculum

We have many areas of concentration that every child is exposed to.

PRACTICAL LIFE

Real life activities help to develop concentration, coordination, independence, and order

SENSORIAL

The five senses are stimulated through attractive didactic materials. Classification and comparisons are practiced.

LANGUAGE

The process of absorbing, experiencing, and expressing language gives the child experience in pre-writing, pre-reading, communication, and listening. Vocabulary, reading, and handwriting begin when the child is ready (usually around 3 years of age). The child proceeds at his/her own pace. Montessori uses a phonics based language program. CMS is very excited to introduce “Handwriting without Tears”, as part of our curriculum.

MATHMATICS

Math materials enable the child to experience and understand concrete forms of numbers and concepts while preparing for an abstract understanding of higher math.

MUSIC

The Montessori music program consists of formal rhythm training plus rhythm instruments, singing, and dancing.

ART

Art activities are encouraged and experienced daily on an individual basis as well as through more formal group projects. The primary classes also have weekly art class. Children are introduced to different artists and their artwork. Students than create their own understanding of the artwork. The main hall at CMS, exhibit’s the primary student’s weekly artwork.

SOCIAL STUDIES /
GEOGRAPHY

Globes, maps, and cultural activities help the children to visualize and understand the world and its inhabitants. CMS celebrates all local and foreign holidays. Parents are encouraged and invited to share their knowledge with our students.

SCIENCE

Discovery, classification, and exploration are emphasized following the child’s spontaneous interest in nature and the physical sciences.
