All of our programs feature curriculum based in the Montessori philosophy, which allows your child to choose meaningful activities that foster their imagination, curiosity and intellect. You can expect a low student to teacher ratio and a strong emphasis on exploring music, building a peaceful community, developing math and literacy skills, learning the French language and utilizing creative arts in all of our classrooms.
We offer a 3, 4 or 5 day toddler program, for children aged 18 months to 3 years, with curriculum focusing on encouraging independence and self-help skills. We also offer a 2 or 3 day Preschool for 3 and 4 year old students that uses the cornerstones of Montessori teachings to guide young learners. Our 5 day Pre-Primary program for 3 and 4 year olds expands on the Preschool offering by delving more deeply into literacy and cultural themes and science and seasonal explorations. Our 5 day Kindergarten for 4 and 5 year olds is approved by the State of Maine and focuses more intently on literacy skills as our students prepare for their elementary school
Additionally, we provide before and after-school care for students within our school and for Falmouth Public Schools, vacation and summer camps, and enrichment opportunities throughout the school year.
