Fall 2014 Registration Now Open!
We are accepting registrations for fall classes. There will be a Wednesday/Thursday morning class for ages 2.5 – 6 from 9:30 – 12:30.
OUR MONTESSORI-STYLE PRESCHOOL AND LITERACY ACTIVITIES
Our daily activities during the school year begin with Circle Time, where we read a story together, sing a song or clap to the beat of our favorite nursery rhymes. We practice letter formation and then learn about a new activity or two from the Montessori room. Children who are ready for independent reading and writing have a small group lesson with a certified reading teacher.
All students are free to self-select activities from the areas of: literacy, math, sensorial awareness, practical life, cooking, nature, and free play. Children also have the choice of working alone, with a partner, or in a group. The teacher leads mini-lessons for smaller groups of children who demonstrate readiness for a new math or literacy concept. If time and weather permit, we go outside for playtime or a nature walk.
Lessons are planned in advance but they are easily adapted as student interest dictates. Welcome to the fun and excitement of a not-so-typical class day at the Sibley Learning Center! If you are interested in learning more about our two-day per week program for children ages 2.5 – 6 years of age, please use the Contact Us page to schedule a phone interview and/or visit.
