The curriculum includes Practical Life (activities such as preparing food, woodworking, polishing silver or shoes, sewing, and instruction in character education and manners), Geometry, Math, Science, Language Arts and Phonics, Foreign Language, Cultural and Social Sciences (such as History and Geography), Physical Education, Art and Music Education. For specific units of study taught at MeadowLark Montessori School, please refer to the "Preschool", "Kindergarten" and "Elementary" pages.
Environmental awareness is emphasized. Students learn about the importance of ecosystems and habitat by observing and caring for a variety of classroom pets (mammals, amphibians, birds). They also plant and harvest their own gardens. The school promotes earth-friendly practices such as recycling, composting and conservation of resources.
Each child establishes his or her own sense of belonging within the school community by recognizing and valuing one’s own abilities and contributions as well as that of others. Children explore different perspectives, exchange ideas and learn respect for individual and cultural differences. In our classroom environment, children develop confidence based on a positive sense of self and seek cooperative approaches to planning and problem solving.
