  • Program Information

    Our Montessori Program (3 - 6 Years)**

  • Our Vision

    To serve a diverse community through creating an environment of encouragement, trust, and mutual respect for our staff and families in order to achieve consistent high quality education and care for all children.

    What Is Montessori?

    Montessori emphasizes learning through all five senses, not just through listening, watching, or reading. Children at Mosaic Montessori learn at their own, individual pace and according to their own choice of activities from many possibilities. Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.

    Work Centers

    The environment is arranged according to subject area, and children are always free to move around the room. There is no limit to how long a child can work with a piece of material. At any one time in a day all subjects–math, language, science, history, geography, art, music, etc.–are being studied at all levels.

    Mixed-Age Grouping in Montessori (3 - 6 Year Olds)

    Mosaic Montessori places children ages three to six in one group, forming a community in which the older children share their knowledge with the younger ones. Our program encourages mixed-age grouping of children to provide a rich learning environment that all children are unique and develop at their own pace and according to their individual interests and abilities. Our Montessori teachers are educated in mixed-age grouping to help ensure it is implemented with the utmost focus on the child’s development and safety. Mixed-age grouping is an effective tool in child development providing many benefits including:

    1. Older children learn to be helpful, patient, tolerant, while development increased confidence in their own skills and abilities.
    2. Younger children have the opportunity to learn more advanced cognitive and socialization skills from the older children.

    Teaching Method - "Teach by Teaching, not by Correcting"

    The child’s efforts and work is respected as it is. The teacher, through extensive observation and record-keeping, plans individual projects to enable each child to learn what he/she needs in order to improve.

    Assessment

    Assessment is by portfolio and the teacher’s observation and record-keeping. The test of whether or not the system is working lies in the accomplishment and behavior of the children, their happiness, maturity, kindness, and love of learning and level of work.

    • I feel so lucky to be able to have my daughter with me while at work. It is the best feeling to just peek in while she’s interacting with her teachers and her friends and to see her singing all the nursery rhymes she has learned at school. Even if I wasn’t working at Mosaic, I feel that I wouldn’t choose any other child care center for my daughter. I get to see every day, every second how the teachers are treating not only her, but all the children. They are so kind-hearted and loving towards all the children. They treat them as if they were their own children. I expect only the best from the teachers at Mosaic as that is exactly what they deliver. Thank you Mosaic teachers!
