Located in Carmichael at the LaSierra Community Center, Montessori Children’s School (MCS) offers a toddler, preschool, and kindergarten program for ages 18 months to 6 years. Our program consists of three classes, focusing on the Montessori methods and philosophy of teaching and child development. The Montessori Theory, developed in the 1800s, is about how kids learn more by discovering on their own than by being told. We strive to provide a safe, welcoming environment for you children to learn and explore their world!
Our transitional preschool is designed for children who have developed skills that let them work independently in the environment but with a shorter work time. Children in this class spend some of their morning working in large groups, circle time activities, yoga and teacher directed art. Their Montessori work time is about 90 minutes per day. Our primary class is best for children who are moving towards a longer work time, usually 2 1/2 to 3 hours per day.
MCS’ teachers will prepare your child their future schooling. We offer both part-time and full-time schedules, and include a ½ day option as well. We have 2, 3 and 5 day options to fit your family’s early childhood education needs. Our school is open from 7:00a.m.-6:00p.m. each day, with class from 8:00am-3:00pm and our morning program from 8:30am-12:30pm. We also offer an after-school program for extended care from 3:00-6:00 p.m.
Your child’s daily schedule at MCS will begin with morning assembly and both the pledge of allegiance (not required if contrary to your family’s wishes) and a pledge to the self, to instill a feeling of confidence and a desire to learn. The rest of the morning is spent in classroom time, circle time, and discovery time. Children break for some fresh air, a little yoga and lunch, then return to classroom time for the afternoon. Each day, we end school with a snack, and an activity which changes on a daily basis!
