The Infant Community, or IC, serves our youngest community members. Parents may choose a 2 day/week schedule at this level. The IC is an AMI Montessori program that serves children who are walking well through age 3. These children enjoy daily practices of cooking, music, movement, fine motor manipulatives, time in the garden and caring for our chickens, self-care -- including independent toileting --, care of environment and socialization skills. Learning to be with others by taking turns, and learning how to be a person in their world, is the great work of the toddler. Foundational practices like these learned from birth to 3 are the building blocks of the construction of man, a key part to our mission and vision of world peace.
PRIMARY (Preschool - Kindergarden)
Our Primary classroom is an AMI Montessori program that serves children who have cognitively and/or socially outgrown the I.C. environment and are ready for something more.. It sets students up for success by continuing to offer the practical life exercises they loved in the I.C. while also adding elements of academia. Primary children utilize skills of concentration to master foundational skills in literacy, mathematics, geography, language arts, handwriting, storytelling, geometry and science. Spanish and Mandarin are offered weekly in the Primary classroom as part of the curriculum.
Our Elementary Program provides a high-fidelity educational curriculum from K1 - Grade 5. The project-based learning style adopted from the Scottish school system meets or exceeds the Texas educational standards for K-12 (TEKS)*. This program is praised by professionals in both the private and public sectors for its multi-grade level child-centered approach that provides on-campus resources --like wellness counseling and tutoring services -- to children during class hours when they need it most. Spanish and Mandarin are offered weekly as a part of the curriculum in Taller.
