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.

  • Smell - olfactory

  • Taste - gustatory

  • Sound  - auditory

Includes the manipulation of specifically designed materials that isolate qualities. Refines fine motor skills, visual and auditory senses and develops coordination and the ability to order and classify. Materials include Pink Tower, Brown Stairs, Knobbed Cylinders, Color Tablets. 

Language

is based on phonetic awareness. Activities draw from the practical life and the sensory sensitivity that the children have developed in order to learn to write their names, when physiologically ready, and to attach sounds to letters and symbols so that they can begin to read.

Math

activities enable children to form one-to-one correspondence, understand sets of items, numerals, and number operations. Hands-on materials are used such as number rods, sandpaper numbers, number boards, spindle box, number tiles, beads and games. Each exercise builds upon another and the child gradually moves to from concrete to abstract.

Cultural

activities enable the children to explore the natural world around them and includes:

  • Geography - continents, landforms, earth layers, solar system

  • Zoology - classification, physiology of animals

  • Botany - ecology, classification, physiology of plants

  • History - time lines, using a calendar
