Ponderosa Montessori School Online!

 
All our classrooms have at least one certified Montessori instructor.

Infant/Toddler Curriculum - 6 weeks to 2 years:
Transition Curriculum - 18 months to 4 years:
Early Childhood Curriculum - 3 to 6 years:
"And so we discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being. It is not acquired by listening to words, but in virtue of experiences in which the child acts on his environment. The teacher's task is not to talk, but to prepare and arrange a series of motives for cultural activity in a special environment made for the child."
Elementary Curriculum - 5 to 12 years (Kindergarten - 6th Grade):
The Montessori Elementary Program offers individualized instruction, which means that the child may work and be helped on an individual basis. Individualized learning establishes more intimate contact among the child, the teacher and the work. The teacher can become involved with the child in other than a "talk-and-chalk" stance before an entire class. Montessori individualized instruction deals in the concrete. The program permits a variety of approaches, using at every turn dynamic and colorful manipulatives that materialize abstract principles. These beautiful concrete materials are used throughout the entire curriculum, including math, reading, grammar, writing, spelling, geography, history, and natural and general science.
