The most absorbent years are a child’s first 6 years of life. As a result, Children of Integrity Montessori Academy regards early childhood education as the very foundation of everything that follows. Program materials encourage children to develop naturally at their own pace, proceeding from simple activities to more complex ones.
Children are allowed the freedom to choose activities (Practical Life Activities, Sensorial Activities, Language Activities, Mathematics, Cultural Activities, and Social Activities), which satisfy their curiosity, sense of wonder and foster independence. Through these activities and the special encouragement and support from the Montessori faculty mentors, the child begins to develop skills of concentration and attention to detail. With guidance through this challenging and individualized program that ‘ensures success’ the child develops confidence and life skills that prepare him/her for kindergarten and life beyond.
