The Young Children's Community is a warm, home like environment that provides a secure and nuturing start for independent walkers to 3 year olds, to begin the journey of learning by doing.
In our YCC the very young child begins to work on their independence from day one, through learning to take off and put on their shoes alone; setting up and clearing the lunch area and making choices on what work activities they would like to undertake. Children in the YCC community also begin set limits; manage conflict and learn to live socially amongst their peers.
Language is a huge part of the YCC community children. Children come in to this community with a few words, through modeling by adults, reading and diverse language activities, they begin to communicate their emotions, wants and dislikes in a peaceful and effective manner, using language in a positive and effective way.
The Children's House welcomes children aged 3-6 in a joyful environment, specifically designed to help children learn at their own pace. The Children's House provides children in this three year age group with a rigorous and varied learning experience, covering practical life, sensorial, cultural/geography, language and mathematics, with a focus of process and mastery.
Children are free to choose their activities from a wide range of scientifically designed Montessori materials, in a beautiful and well-defined environment.The adults in the environment serve as guides who show the children how to use the concrete materials. Working with the materials not only helps develop coordination, concentration, independence, and a sense of order; it also helps the child become more disciplined and accomplished.
Children in a Montessori environment usually have healthy self-esteems because they are helped to do things themselves. The children have ownership of the environment and take good care of it, returning materials with care.
The Children's House environment unifies the social, physical, and intellectual functioning of the child. We provide children with an early and general foundation that includes a positive attitude toward school, inner security, a sense of order, pride in the environment, curiosity, concentration, self-discipline, and a sense of responsibility for the self and for the group. Thus, through interacting with the Montessori environment, the child constructs him or herself in a positive manner. This benefits the child in school and in life.
Instruction occurs one-on-one and in small groups conducted at the child's pace. Montessori materials are organized in a logical, sequential nature, providing a structure that guides a child's discovery. A series of presentations, activities, and developmentally appropriate materials are designed to enable the child to master specific skills. Each series of presentations and material is grouped by broader content areas that complement and interrelate with one another.
