Preschool and Kindergarten Ages 3-6

The most important part of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six. For that is the time when a person’s intelligence itself, the greatest implement, is being formed.
--Maria Montessori

A carefully prepared classroom environment provides opportunities for children to actively learn in a multi-aged community. Hermosa's preschool and kindergarten programs recognize the importance of the first six years of life and children's self-motivation. Certified Montessori teachers guide children to use concrete materials to learn math concepts, and child size movable alphabets to explore language and begin to read and write.  Other beautifully designed materials provide lessons in:

  • practical life
  • sensory development
  • language arts
  • math
  • art
  • science
  • geography
  • Cultural awareness
  • Music and movement

A Love to Learn

Children are encouraged, exposed, and challenged--not pushed.  Hermosa Montessori School's preschool and kindergarten classes provide a respectful, calm, caring--yet stimulating environment for young children to learn and grow.  Parents are able to provide healthy snacks for their children’s classroom.
