Transition Program

Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics and Science

What the hand does the mind remembers. – Dr. Maria Montessori


”Practical Life“, the cornerstone of the 33 month to 3.5 year old Montessori Program. Transition focuses on control of movement, care of the environment, care of self and social relations (grace and courtesy lessons). Through these exercises children are given the skills to function independently and develop their self-confidence. Other areas of focus include Sensorial, Language, Mathematics and Science. Sensorial exercises are presented for all five senses – visual (Pink Tower), tactile (touch tables), auditory (sound boxes), olfactory (smelling jars) and taste (tasting bottles). Language exercises add to the foundation with vocabulary expansion and writing as the main focus. The child is introduced to Mathematics through concrete materials using Number Work Progression and Introduction to Numbers.

Home Away from Home
A Facebook testimonial from one of our parents
“Not only am I proud to be a teacher at this amazing school but I am blessed to be a parent with a child attending too. There is no better testimonial than to know how things run behind the scenes and to still know and trust my child is in the best hands possible. This school is truly a “home away from home!” – Tara S.
