Our Preschool Program

At Seneca Village Montessori School, our Preschool Program is designed to nurture and enrich your child’s early learning experiences, perfectly aligned with our mission to blend Montessori principles with a curriculum enriched by the African Diaspora. Our primary program offers a unique, mixed-age classroom environment for children ages 3 to 6, promoting inclusivity and peer learning.

Our classrooms are dynamic spaces where learning is actively encouraged through hands-on experiences. We utilize concrete materials that compel children to explore the world through their senses—touching, moving, observing, and engaging directly with their environment. This sensory-based approach solidifies fundamental concepts and skills in real, tangible ways.

Educators at our school act as facilitators, guiding children through the curriculum with care and expertise. They introduce lessons and then provide the freedom for children to explore and practice what they’ve learned independently. This method supports our philosophy of fostering independence, curiosity, and self-esteem by empowering children to take charge of their learning journey.

As our students grow, the classroom materials and lessons evolve with them. Children are encouraged to delve deeper into the curriculum, exploring complex concepts and expanding their understanding within the supportive framework of Montessori education. This progressive approach ensures that as children’s capabilities increase, they continue to find their learning environment challenging and engaging, crucial for their development as insightful, resilient, and compassionate individuals ready to engage with the world.
