Montessori Curriculum

Trinity Montessori School uses the Montessori curriculum as it was prescribed by Dr. Maria Montessori, the basis of which follows the natural developmental tendencies of the child. Lessons are aimed at building on the continuing self-construction of the child on a daily, weekly, and yearly basis. Each day begins with an uninterrupted three hour work cycle in which each child chooses age appropriate work from a variety of disciplines including mathematics, language arts, geography, history, science, and practical life skills.

“My vision of the future is no longer people taking exams and proceeding then on that certification….but of individuals passing from one stage of independence to an higher (one), by means of their own activity through their own effort of will, which constitutes the inner evolution of the individual.”
– Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence

Trinity Montessori adheres closely to the methods recommended by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), and our teachers hold certificates from either AMI or the American Montessori Society (AMS).  Our classrooms are grouped into three year age blocks as follows: Infant (3mos. - 12mos.), Pre-Toddler (1 year - 2 years), and Toddler (2 years - 3 years) ,  Casa (3-6 years), Elementary (6-9 years), and Upper Elementary (9-12 years).  In this manner, older children are able to develop strong leadership skills.
