Cultivating Young Minds

Our Preschool Program caters to children aged 3 to 5 years, embracing Dr. Montessori's concept of the 'absorbent mind'. In this phase, children are keen to absorb information and learn from their environment. Our well-prepared classrooms offer a rich array of activities, fostering intense mental activity to develop cognitive, social, and emotional skills. We encourage our preschoolers to explore freely, choose their work, and grow at their own pace, supporting their journey towards becoming independent, confident, and creative individuals.

Preschool Learning Journey

Our Preschool Program at Santa Clara Montessori offers a rich and diverse learning journey, tailored to the developmental needs of children aged 3 to 5 years. We focus on nurturing each child's natural curiosity and love for learning through a blend of structured and exploratory activities. Our curriculum is designed to develop foundational skills in language, mathematics, sensory awareness, and cultural understanding, ensuring a well-rounded early educational experience. By fostering these critical areas of development, we prepare our preschoolers for the next stages of their academic and personal growth.

Language and Literacy

Language arts are a cornerstone of our program, where children learn to associate letters with sounds, begin reading, and develop fine motor skills essential for writing. This early literacy foundation is crucial for their future academic success and lifelong communication skills.

Mathematical Understanding

Mathematics in our preschool curriculum includes understanding geometric shapes, counting, and basic addition. These activities foster early mathematical skills, logical thinking, and problem-solving abilities in young learners.

Sensory Development

Sensory development is key in our program, with activities designed to refine sensory perception and motor skills. Using tools like metal insets and sensory matching activities, children learn to differentiate and categorize their experiences.

Cultural Awareness

Cultural awareness is fostered through introducing children to various subjects like botany, zoology, geography, and science. This broadens their understanding of the world, different cultures, and the environment, encouraging respect and curiosity.

Essential Life Skills

Our program emphasizes essential life skills such as empathy, self-control, and grace. These skills are vital for social maturity, respect for others, and the ability to navigate interpersonal relationships throughout life.

Our approach goes beyond academic learning, focusing on the development of social maturity, self-control, and empathy. We believe in equipping children with the skills and knowledge they need to navigate their future educational paths and the world around them with confidence and curiosity.
