“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.” ~Maria Montessori
Early Childhood Montessori Education in Sugar Land
3 years-6 years
Our Early Childhood class offers multi-age grouping for ages 3 to 6 years. The three year mixed-age grouping gives children the unique opportunity to succeed in a miniature community where mutual respect, sharing, caring, and self-reliance can thrive. Older children are mentors and role models for the young ones; they reinforce their knowledge by teaching and mentoring the younger ones. Moral and social skills are cultivated as students participate in the Second Step program for social and character development.
A prepared learning environment supports a child’s natural curiosity, encourages creativity, and aids cooperative learning.
In the Sugar Mill Montessori Early Childhood class, children are taught individually and in small groups. A child is free to choose any work she or he is introduced to from the different areas of the classroom. Each child has the freedom to observe, explore, and interact with the inviting and colorful materials in the classroom, thereby acquiring knowledge through play.
