Your Montessori School Mission and Core Values
Our Mission is to offer children and parents an authentic Montessori environment that promotes the curious, independent, and playful nature of children. We offer parents the opportunity to build community with other parents while learning about Montessori, child development, and parenting.
Our Core Values include
Education – YMS values education in all its forms as an important lifelong value that enables
us to understand ourselves and the world around us.
Community – a feeling of community for young and old enriches our lives and offers reliable support in an ever changing and stressful world.
Respect – YMS values respect for oneself, for one another, our planet, and the importance of compassion and empathy in our day to day life.
The Toddler Community is a half day program from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm with 2, 3, 4, or 5 day a week options.
We have two half day primary programs: a morning program 8 to noon and an afternoon program 1 to 5 p.m. They both offer 3, 4, and 5 days options.
The Toddler Community is a wonderful classroom experience for children ages 15/18 months (walking well) to age 3. We have created a safe, loving prepared environment that focuses on the amazing cognitive and social-emotional development of this age group. The zero to three Montessori curriculum includes purposeful activities that call to the very young child because they offer opportunities to move, to explore, and to discover through active work, Much of this "work" contributes to the community by caring for one another and our environment. We build a sense of friendship and community with these young yet mighty children.
The three to six year old program at YMS highlights a mixed age classroom with individualized lessons and one-on-one learning experiences. We offer plenty of active and group time which fosters positive social-emotional development and community building. At these ages, children begin to understand the world around them in new ways that capture their intellectual and creative curiosity. The Montessori method works with this curiosity at each turn to instill a love of learning, subject mastery, independence, and confidence. The curriculum for this age includes math, language, art and music, practical life activities, culture, and sensorial activities. Click here for more information about sensorial activities.
