Our Children’s House is for children ages 2.9 through 6 years old. At Newburyport Montessori we approach each child with love and understanding. We provide our students with a nurturing and compassionate environment that enables children to: develop autonomy; establish comfortable and productive peer relations; learn basic skills and concepts necessary for intellectual development; and keep a sense of wonder and appreciation for the world. We offer 4 and 5 morning programs from 9am – Noon. Additionally, we also offer an afternoon program from Noon to 3pm.
Our program includes:
Cultural Studies and Science
Our goal is to inspire the child to feel the wonder and awe of the natural world, and to gain a deeper understanding of this amazing world.
In addition to other activities within the classroom, our science teacher explores such subjects as: simple machines; magnets; geology; and electricity.
Children experience music of many different cultures and styles. At daily circle times, teachers lead songs and creative movement. Children play rhythm instruments and learn new songs.
Each week our music specialist introduces elements of music theory. Children sing joyfully together, learning new songs and singing well-known beloved songs.
