2017-2018 Programs and Tuition

Children’s House – Ages 2 ½ – 4

8:15 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. $7,160
Maria Montessori believed, "The child can develop fully by means of experience in his environment". Per Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) standards, children will participate in an uninterrupted 3-hour block of work time including lessons in science, geography, math, language, reading, music, physical activity, show-and-share, and group time. Lessons are given to the children based on age and individual readiness. The children are then able to choose their work and engage in it as long as it holds their attention, thereby promoting concentration. The role of the Primary teacher is to be the keen observer, watching for mastery, giving new lessons, and ensuring the children choose meaningful work in all academic disciplines. Children participate in outdoor play daily except in the case of severely inclement weather. Spanish culture and language is integrated into daily Montessori life.

Children’s House Plus – Ages 2 ½ – 4

8:15 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. $10,850
Children's House Plus is tailored to meet the needs of the child not yet old enough to stay for the Extended Day program. After their morning work cycle children play outdoors, eat their lunch, enjoy a rejuvenation period, and participate in enriching activities such as gardening, art, and more outdoor active adventures. Children must be enrolled in the Children's House program in order to participate in Children's House Plus.

Extended Day – Ages 5 – 6

8:15 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. $8,900

Extended Day is an extension of the Montessori program for children when they turn 5 years of age. Afternoons are spent in more advanced lessons, special projects, field trips, and enriching activities such as gym, music, and art. Children may begin Extended Day within one month of turning age 5.

Elementary, Ages 6-12 (Grades 1-6)

8:15 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. $8,900
The Montessori Elementary program offers inspiring stories and beautiful visual aids to help children develop "big picture" appreciation of the universe including life on earth and the work of human civilization. At the same time, small group lessons using concrete materials build knowledge and skills, so that students come to see themselves as independent workers and contributors to the forward progress of humanity. Students learn time-management skills, and develop projects of their own, often in small groups. Frequent outing are an important part of the Montessori elementary program, with students completing the steps for initiating, planning, and organizing trips to support particular projects or interests. Outdoor learning, along with music, drama, and the visual arts are integrated into the classroom lessons. A Spanish culture and language specialist spends time daily in the classroom, exposing children to the exciting benefits of learning another culture and having the ability to speak to others using the Spanish language.
