Aster Montessori Program
We focus on children aged 2½ to 6, a critical developmental stage during which a child’s natural curiosity drives learning. Our program adheres to the Montessori method, allowing for a deeper and more authentic educational experience than in conventional settings, and emphasizes social and emotional development. We have preschool and kindergarten grade-level children in our mixed-age classrooms.
Why Kindergarten at Aster Montessori
We encourage children to continue at our school for one more year after completing the preschool grade level, as it offers several well-established advantages and makes the transition to other schools smoother.
- Consolidation of skills: The Kindergarten year in our Montessori school allows children to reinforce and deepen their understanding of concepts introduced in previous years and master the skills and knowledge.
- Leadership opportunities: Kindergarten students often take on leadership roles as the older children in the classroom. They become role models for younger peers, fostering a sense of responsibility, empathy, and confidence.
- Social and emotional growth: Another year in the familiar Montessori environment allows children to develop social skills, emotional maturity, and self-confidence. They become more adept at working collaboratively, resolving conflicts, and expressing themselves effectively.
- Smooth transition to elementary school: An additional year in a familiar and supportive environment can ease the transition to a more structured elementary school setting. Children have increased confidence and adaptability when moving on to the next phase of their education.
The curriculum covers primary areas of the Montessori method: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, Cultural Studies, and Science. Beyond this curriculum, we include well-curated learning in Music, Science, Art, Languages, and Physical Education.
