The Morning Class is the heart of the Montessori experience. Each group of children is a little
community. The multi-age grouping of 3, 4 and 5 year olds creates opportunities for collaboration and
cooperation. By developing a sense of responsibility for themselves and others, children grow in self-discipline
The children engage in spontaneous, meaningful activities at their own pace and rhythm. Each child is
unique with different interests, different abilities, and different needs. At Montessori Pathways School, we
never lose sight of the individual needs of each child within the social setting of the entire group.
The multi-age grouping in the morning/afternoon class fosters a caring and cooperative classroom. This important
dimension of the classroom focuses on the whole child within the supportive setting of the social group. It
allows each individual to grow in their social role and become a contributing member. Parents and teachers form
a supportive community. This sense of community has always begun inside our walls.
A rich variety of hands-on Montessori materials provide a concrete way to experience abstract concepts in the
following curriculum areas:
- Practical Life
- Sensorial and Motor
- Language Art
- Math and Critical Thinking
- Nature and Science
- Geography and Cultural Awareness
- Creative Art
- Music and Movement
Children benefit most from consistent, daily attendance. Our morning class meets Monday through
Friday, 8:45 AM - 11:45 AM, providing the cornerstone of authentic Montessori education.
