Single Week Sessions June 22-August 14
Primary, Lower Elementary or 4th year Upper Elementary by this fall 2015 (open to any child enrolled in any Montessori program)
Montessori Morning is a half-day program from 9am-12noon, that focuses on transitioning from home to the classroom environment, as well as developing the skills needed for the upcoming school year. At noon campers will join the traditional camp day campers in their afternoon activity blocks.
Montessori education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural development. In a Montessori classroom, every exercise, every method and every piece of equipment takes advantage of a child’s inherent desire to learn. Children are free to work in groups or on their own. They may sit at a table or move about the room. Here, the curriculum and teacher's role are all carefully designed to honor self-paced growth while encouraging social cooperation.
All campers in Montessori Mornings will join in the all camp field trip on Wednesdays.
