Montessori School Holds Informational Curriculum Night
The Children's Tree Montessori School, 96 Essex Road, Old Saybrook, will hold a curriculum night on September 28th from 5:30-7:30pm. The Montessori certified teachers will take you on a step-by-step journey through the Montessori Math Curriculum to get a better understanding of how a Montessori student spends their day. By touring each classroom you can see the continuum of the material’s progression through the levels, from a Montessori toddler through a 6th grade Montessori elementary student. This free workshop is open to the public. Optional dinner and childcare is offered for $10 per family.
The mathematical mind begins to develop at a very young age through patterns, music, and visual discrimination. By recognizing and developing a continuum of materials to explain concepts using all of the senses - through, scientific method, Maria Montessori created a math program, which has not been changed in over a 100 years. Come see how four year olds are exposed to multiplication. And why Montessori students can answer crazy Common Core questions simply because they have learned and understand the concepts concretely before working in the abstract. CMTS students routinely excel at an early age and often exceed the Common Core Standards.
