Learn Through Discovery at Aurora Montessori!
The Montessori curriculum and programs are based on the philosophy of world-renowned educator Dr. Maria Montessori. Each of our programs is designed to address the unique developmental needs of your child through an exploration of language, mathematics, spatial learning, music and art.
Dr. Montessori believed every child was an eager and willing learner. For this reason, Montessori teachers have an unobtrusive, supporting role in the classroom. Every child's learning is self-directed, based on that child's interests and abilities. It's not the traditional approach, but for many children, it's proven to be the best approach.
We invite you to learn more about our programs listed below and then to schedule a visit to see them in person.
Montessori Preschool (Ages 2-3)
Stepping Stones I is offered as a two-hour, two-days-a-week program for our friends 18 to 36 months old.
For our friends two to three years old, Stepping Stones II is offered as a four-hour class, and includes lunch. Children in Stepping Stones II will continue to be guided with potty-training as necessary. A school day extension is available for this class; children enrolled for the school day will be escorted to a napping environment at 12:30 p.m. each day. At semester breaks, Stepping Stones I children are given priority when registering for this class. The ratio in this class is 1:8. Before-school care may also available for this program.
Montessori Primary (Ages 3-6)
Both of my children have excelled in their academic and social growth during their time at your school. The individual attention that was given to each child is evident. They enjoy school every day and we are so pleased to be part of the Aurora Montessori School family!
