Freedom to Learn & Guidance to Thrive
Ages 3–6 (Pre-K and Kindergarten)
See. Hear. Taste. Smell. Touch.
Young children engage all their senses to learn. Montessori materials are ingeniously designed to connect young minds to the tangible world. Through individual and group learning, students develop the ability to manipulate objects, communicate, socialize and thrive.
Students experience windows of opportunity to best absorb a particular skill or knowledge area. These “sensitive” times in a child’s development, as Dr. Montessori called them, are periods when children are most receptive to learning. Highly trained teachers at The Red Oaks School customize the learning environment. They match appropriate lessons and materials to the unique abilities, interests, and readiness of each and every student.
