Primary

 

In our Montessori based Kindergarten curriculum, we structure our learning programs to maximize the child’s growth in all areas of the classroom. This will enable them to develop order, coordination, concentration and independent work habits.

Equal importance is given to the physical, social, emotional and academic development of the child. The warm, inviting and supportive environment of the classroom allows children to be the best of what they can be. In Woodbridge Montessori Academy, the children are culturally diverse and this allows them to develop respect and admiration for all.

Our curriculum consists of:

  • Math & Language
  • Sensorial Activities
  • Science
  • Geography and Cultural Study
  • Art
  • Music
  • Foreign Languages
  • Summer Programs
