Olive Acres Academy upholds the Montessori philosophy which recognizes that each child has a creative aptitude that will enable them to build a mental world from the world around them
Our contemporary Montessori program (classes) is designed to facilitate the child’s natural learning and developmental processes.
1 to 3 year olds
Many times, toddlers are referred to as “The Terrible Twos” but we see them as terrific for their energy, determination, and curiosity. To be a toddler is to be curious and there are so many things to see, touch, hear, feel, and do. Our toddler environment is purposefully created to be a safe place for your toddler to learn, grow and enjoy his or her independence. A place where everything is just the right size for them to do things on their own.
3 to 6 year olds
Children at this stage work with hands-on materials which provide them with the keys to explore the world and develop cognitive abilities while the adult guides and stimulates this inborn creative ability and helps the child navigate their learning process.
6 to 12 year olds
In Montessori, we believe that a child learns best within a collaborative, social environment that respects each child’s unique development. Your child will be part of a small class in an environment ready for exploration and discovery that allows them to work at their own pace, individually or collaboratively with each other, guided by caring, trained adults who understand them deeply.
