Welcome to New Life Montessori
Thank you for your interest in New Life Montessori School. For over 15 years, New Life Montessori has provided an enriching environment for preschool and kindergarten children. Using the Montessori approach, we help children develop their inherent joy in learning, a sense of responsibility for their actions, and respect for themselves, others, and their environment. We give children the tools they need to succeed not only in the classroom but also in life. We hope you will find the information throughout our website informative and useful in choosing the right school for your child and family.
Our Montessori environment includes the following areas for your child to explore:
Activities that strive to teach the following: the care and respect of self, others and environment, grace and courtesy, personal independence, social skills, eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills.
The materials in this area of the classroom are designed to refine the child's senses by using color, shape and size recognition. These materials also help in the development of order and are an indirect introduction to language and mathematics.
These activities provide a "hands on" introduction and knowledge of quantity and number recognition. They gain an understanding of mathematical operations through the use of beads, rods, spindles, and cards.
Materials that provide opportunities for the development of verbal, reading and written language.
Science is introduced through the observation of plants and animals and by involving the children in simple science experiments. Montessori science packets are used to teach the child to identify and classify parts of their natural environment. A large yard provides ample opportunity for gardening, observing different types of trees and the changes nature provides.
Geography, History and social studies
The children begin their study of geography by floating miniature boats on scale models of land-and water forms. They then progress to simplified color-coded maps and globes. Time lines and pictures are used to develop concepts of time and history. Stories and books encourage lively group discussions.
Group activities and Art
Although the Montessori classroom focuses in on individual learning, children are given opportunity to develop social skills. Singing, dancing, and group games are enjoyable activities along with the time to play outdoors with their peers. Children also demonstrate pleasure in painting, working with clay, or creating their own personal "works of art".
This includes the use of movement, rhythm instruments, finger plays, singing children's songs, and listening to many styles of music
We tell bible stories, and then share positive character traits from our stories. We emphasize the virtue of being brave like David, wise like Solomon, or faithful like Daniels and etc. We also share the wonderful news that God loves us and has a wonderful plan for our lives.
