Preschool & Kindergarten

Children ages 3-6 are grasping the same concepts as their peers in a traditional classroom, but the idea is for children to learn individually and at their own pace by moving freely around the room and choosing from a wide range of hands-on, age-appropriate activities that are designed to teach specific skills

Elementary

Our objectives are to help the child develop independence as a learner, to have comfortable and productive peer relations, to learn those basic skills and concepts necessary for intellectual development, to be aware of and to organize their environment in terms of his or herself, to establish for the child effective learning strategies and to kindle an excitement for learning

The Montessori Method

Montessori has two basic principles. First, children and developing adults engage in psychological self-construction by means of interaction with their environments. Second, children, especially under the age of six, have an innate path of psychological development. Based on her observations, Montessori believed that children who are at liberty to choose and act freely within an environment prepared according to her model would act spontaneously for optimal development.

Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed

“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed"

Independence: At Bell Canyon we foster independence as core foundation of your child's education. It is always our goal to see a child doing things for themselves. We work towards this by giving our students opportunities to take care of their belongings, clean up after themselves, help adults with tasks and choose for themselves what they want to do. This method creates confidence and self-belief in our students.

Dr. Montessori believed that children learn better when they’re choosing what to learn, and that philosophy is present in Montessori classrooms today. A Montessori classroom likely looks different than what you’re used to. Things that make it unique include:

  • Various activity stations for children to choose from throughout the day.

  • Teachers moving from group to group instead of standing at the front of the classroom.

  • A nontraditional grading system.

  • A focus on the whole student—social, emotional, intellectual and physical development are all considered.

  • Enhance social interaction.

  • Inclusive of special needs.
