Our Curriculum Components

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori

  • Sensorial Children learn skills very effectively through their senses. Specific activities are designed to capitalize on using the senses to learn.
  • Math Mathematical thought process and practice are woven into summer activities to help children explore math as it relates to multiple areas in fun and interesting ways.
  • Language All our explorations and activities encourage growth in oral language, written expression, reading, and grammar elements, weaving all the components into the summer themes.
  • Garden Lessons in the outdoors help children develop an understanding and appreciation for the complexity and interdependence of our living world. Children develop the skills of exploration, observation, experimentation, and conservation.
  • Culture Cultural exercises in our summer camp programs include special visitors, in-depth studies, and hands-on activities related to the world around us, including other countries and cultures, the natural world, different languages, and foods.

Learning at Home

Houseplants

You Will Need:

A hardy houseplant (ivy, aloe vera, etc.), a small watering can

Directions:

Help your child choose plants to care for and purchase them at a garden center. When you are watering your houseplants, encourage your child can care for her plants, too. 

Talk about how much water the plants need. Have your child measure that amount of water into the watering can. Let your child decide where the plants will get the best amount of sun and fertilize the plant. Say things like, “What do you think the plant food will do to the plant?”; “What does food do to you?”; “What would happen to your plant if you didn’t feed or water it?”; “Do you think your plant looks any greener?” 

Don’t forget to have your child dust the leaves when needed and say things like “Can your plant get air with dust on it?” and “What happens to you if you can’t breathe?”

Tip:

Make sure to use nonpoisonous plants. Some common plants - poinsettias and philodendrons - are mildly poisonous. Other plants - shamrock and dieffenbachia - are highly poisonous.
