Curriculum Focus

Our Montessori Culturally Responsive teaching approach, uses a combination of  Teaching Resources. The Letter People by Abrams & Company Publishers, Inc. The Creative Curriculum for Preschooler by Teaching Strategies, Common Core,  World Books,  and others.
The environment  and hands-on manipulative allow the children to construct their own reality and work individually while at the same time teaching an important concept for the child independent discovery.

We nurture our children's natural curiosity, which helps them develop problem- solving skills, encourage their ability to make decision and fully equip children with a strong academic foundation to succeed in Life, College and Careers. With our children fully prepared for present and the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
