As we start our brand New Year, 2016, we would like to reach out to you as your child will be entering his/her final year. In our Montessori environment the third year and final year is equivalent to kindergarten. In other words, if your child is five years old by September 1st, 2016 he/she will be a kindergartener. With that being said, we would like to invite you to our Curriculum Phase 2 Night on February 8th. Each teacher will meet you in their respective classrooms. It will start at 5:00PM and end at 6:00PM. We want to emphasize that the kindergarten year is very crucial and vital for your child. Completing the learning cycle in our Montessori environment, will build your child’s learning experience in a concrete and long lasting way. However, if your child’s birthday does not meet the Michigan State cutoff date, please feel free to see me. I will be happy to discuss ongoing educational options with you.
Topics that will be covered:
- Final year in pre-primary classroom
- Daily schedule
- Social development
- Enriched curriculum
- Complex materials
- Individualized Advanced lessons
- State benchmarks versus Montessori
- Monthly projects
- RAZ for Kids A-Z
- Physical Education
- Fostering curiosity, independence, life-long love of learning
- Question & Answer session
