About Quemazon Montessori School
A Place to Shine!
Established in 2001
Quemazon Montessori offers two programs for children ranging in age from 6 weeks through 5 years.
The Infant/Toddler/Tranistion Programs
The infant/Toddler/Transition Programs are open to children from ~6 weeks to ~3 years of age. Its focus is to respect this period in the young child’s life as a constructive, developmental period in and of itself. The staff and learning environment promote the development of a sense of order, language, sensory skills, and the formation of fundamental concepts through experimentation and the manipulation of object.
The Early Childhood Program
The Early childhood Program is available to children ranging from ~3 through 5 years of age, and is the natural next step after the Infant/Toddler/Transition Programs. It is in this period that a child’s inherent desire to learn becomes apparent. During this phase of a child’s education, concentration, coordination, independence, and a sense of order are encouraged. Parents will see their children developing initiative, inner discipline, and a deep respect for themselves, others, and their environment.
