Hopscotch Montessori School’s mission is to provide preschool/kindergarten students with an advanced scholastic program structured upon and around the true and tested principles of the Montessori Pedagogical system. Our goal is to facilitate the development of critical psycho-social and psycho-cognitive skills in the growing child by establishing a resource-rich learning environment that targets and stimulates the intellectual, emotional, social and physical faculties of our students. With loving, nurturing devotion, our highly qualified and experienced Montessori trained teachers exactingly prepare the learning environment enabling maximum academic and practical outcomes that result in joyous children organically committed to a life-time love of learning.
Our time-tested classic curriculum of practical life; sensorial materials; math; language; science; culture and art enables children to learn and improve their cognitive and normative skills in a multiplicity of core development areas. Our classrooms are fully equipped with primary educational materials that meaningfully shape and sculpt the child’s psycho-neurological functioning. More keenly, Montessori teachers are encouraged to nourish children with the precepts of grace and courtesy so as to further the unique humanistic potentials latent within. Teachers support young students to think and act independently even as they learn to explore the world at their own pace and in their own way.
Daily routines for the children vary but always include different in-door and out door physical activities such as Yoga or a daily walks and classroom activities such as working with materials, art and music or cooking classes.
The lessons whether individual or in small groups are designed to further children academically, including “circle time” and other collaborative activities, which stimulate the children in their socialization.
As the result of studying in a Montessori environment during their preschool and kindergarten programs, students become self-confident and intelligent learners with essential practical reflexes that position them to continue their academic successes at the best schools.
