We recognize that children learn in different ways, at their own pace. The Montessori program and The Jubilee School share the same mission, which is to to educate children of all abilities, in partnership with parents – to discern truth, goodness, and beauty in God’s creation – and joyfully discover their fullest potential.
Montessori education concentrates on the specific needs of the child. Children are taught on a one-on-one basis in a Prepared Environment, specially designed to meet the requirements established by Maria Montessori. This shift in focus from the traditional classroom model helps to create a better sense of self for the children, both in terms of independence and self-discipline. Not only are the educational needs of the children met and nurtured, but also -- and just as important in Montessori -- their social development is enhanced in an environment of mixed-ages, predicated on openness and diversity.
The "Kindergarten year" is where a child’s earlier experiences and skills consolidate, are internalized, and become a permanent part of his or her understanding. Children entering their Kindergarten year have finally become the leaders of the community. Their confidence soars while they model everything from academic work to socially-appropriate behavior to their younger friends.
We do not require that your child attend all 5 days; however, that consistency is helpful and is recommended for a complete Montessori Primary experience. Our "core" program runs 3 days per week: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This hybrid approach works well for many of our families who homeschool and/or want more family time. In this program, your child will be introduced to opportunities for a well-rounded course of study within the context of the home and larger community of the child.
"Authentic Montessori" is based on a 5-day per week, 3-year cycle for completion. This allows children to reach developmental goals at their own pace in our mixed-age classroom. Dr. Montessori recognized that every child is unique in his or her development and does not grow at the same rate as every other child. The 5-day per week and 3-year cycle gives each individual child the space necessary to reach educational benchmarks.
