In each classroom there are five areas of concentration: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, and Cultural.
The Practical Life area enhances the development of task organization and cognitive order through care of self, care of the environment, exercises of grace and courtesy, and coordination of physical movement.
The Sensorial area enables the child to order, classify, and describe sensory impressions in relation to length, width, temperature, mass, color, and pitch.
The Mathematics area makes use of manipulative materials to enable the child to internalize concepts of number, symbol, sequence, operations, and memorization of basic facts.
The Language area includes oral language development, written expression, reading, the study of grammar, and children's literature. Basic skills in writing and reading are developed through the use of sandpaper letters, alphabet cut-outs, and various presentations allowing children to link sounds and letter symbols effortlessly and to express their thoughts through writing.
The Cultural area has activities that expose the child to basics in geography, history, and life sciences. Music, art, and movement education are part of the integrated cultural curriculum.
Providence Montessori School House music classes feature curricula for musical learning in our classrooms and new musical themes every few weeks. We believe that early integration of music into a child’s daily routine means improving your child’s ability to think, reason, create and express. Trained educators provide developmentally and age appropriate music and movement programs on a bi-weekly basis, which includes exposure to a variety of musical instruments.
We offer a bi-weekly unique physical education program for ages 16 months to 6 years. Our exciting age appropriate games set children up for success. Games are designed to develop coordination and refine motor skills while building self-confidence.
