Montessori Preschool Learning Program For Ages 3-6

Montessori Preschool Of Chapel Hill

The Montessori experience at an early age prepares children at a later age to be able to isolate, classify, discriminate, analyze, and use critical thinking skills. It is the basis for creative learning and intellectual curiosity.” ~ Dr. Maria Montessori

When children come to Montessori Academy of Chapel Hill Preschool they enter a Children’s House. In the Children’s House, children as young as three and as old as six, learn side-by-side. Younger children observe higher lessons and get excited about the next level. Older students self-confidently guide younger peers. By grouping in this way, Teachers are able to guide the continuous progress of the child in the most productive and nurturing manner.

The Children’s House is a place of multisensory learning, arranged into four main subject areas: Practical Life Education, Sensorial Education, Education for the Development of the Logical / Mathematical Mind, and Education for Language Development. Weekly lessons may also include music, art, cooking, and gardening.

Hands-on activities keep children in touch with learning as they build concentration and an increasing sense of order during this period of rapid social and emotional development. The Montessori Preschool principles and curriculum are designed to foster characteristics that play a critical role in intellectual growth such as self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-control. When young children exhibit these qualities, they feel good about themselves and interact appropriately with their environment and peers, with little need for disciplinary tactics.

There is a purpose to everything we do in a Montessori Preschool Children’s House. Teachers present lessons according to a sequential plan and observe the interest and ability of each child. Children learn at their own rate, self-selecting the lessons that best match their current abilities and desires. Combining conventional educational methods and Montessori principles, Teachers guide each child along his or her own path of learning and achievement.
