Moncordel International School has 5 classrooms serving children 3 through 6 years of age. Each classroom has a certified Montessori teacher and a trained assistant. The enrollment in each class is capped at 24 students. The classroom is designed, equipped, and furnished to facilitate learning in a comfortable, child-centered environment. The carefully designed materials allow children to physically manipulate objects that promote knowledge in the areas of math, language, geography, science, and practical life.
The process is designed to keep learning enjoyable while taking advantage of the child’s natural “sensitive periods” for acquiring skills and knowledge.
The materials are mostly self-correcting to reduce the need for adult intervention, and allowing personal success in the discovery process.
There is a focus on grace, courtesy, respect, and independence. The overall goal is to provide a caring environment in which individual developmental needs are satisfied through the use of manipulative materials and guidance of the proprietress.
The child is free to learn at an individual pace, free from the time pressures of our fast-paced society. Here, the child will gain independence, self-esteem, and respect for others.
