French, Music, and Art

“The hands are the instruments of man’s intelligence.”  Maria Montessori


Singing, dancing, rhythm exercises, and creative movement are part of the daily classroom experience.


We work on listening activities and all primary classrooms are equipped with the Montessori material (the Bells) used to introduce pitch, the musical scale, composition, and reading music.


Kindergarteners participate weekly  in music instruction led by an early childhood music instructor.



Each week children participate in a French immersion experience with our language specialist. Vocabulary, culture, and traditions are taught through games, singing, and storytelling.  Children during their first two years are absorbing receptive language and during the third year their expressive language blossoms.


Our French specialist spends one morning each week in every classroom.



Children engage in art experiences daily in the classroom using paint, clay, collage and colored pencils. Once children have been given preliminary experiences with these mediums, they are able to participate in art enrichment in the pavilion. Printmaking, sculpture, and mixed media are just some of the opportunities presented during the school year.
