EECChildren’s Own School has 5 classrooms each staffed with a Master Teacher and an Assistant. Four classrooms has a balance of children aged 2.9 to 6 years of age, and children benefit by the three years with the same teacher and classmates. Our new Pre-Primary Program is for children ages 2.5 to 2.9.
The children start their day outside on one of our three spacious playgrounds. Once children enter our historic, sun-filled schoolhouse they enjoy uninterrupted classroom time. Joyful, thoughtful, peaceful and focused work is accomplished as children move freely from one Montessori material to another, accelerating at their own pace.
Our Pre-Primary Program is a classroom designed for our youngest children between the ages of 2.5 and 2.9. The two teachers to nine children ratio provides our youngest children with the attention and care they need as they transition to school for the first time. The hours are 8:30am to 12:00noon, or 8:30am to 2:30pm.
The Children's House is our preschool program which children engage in classroom communities from 8:30am to 12:00noon, or 8:30am until 2:30pm. The children learn in mixed age classroom communities.
Our Enrichment Program is an afternoon program for all our students. Children enjoy an afternoon of activities from 2:30pm until 4:30pm.
The Arts Program is led by an art specialist who supports music and the visual arts by working with every classroom once a week in small groups. Through singing, yoga, creative movement, dancing, and visual art experiences she supports the arts curriculum in the classrooms. The arts specialist is responsible for preparing annual performances working in close conjunction with the classroom teachers.
