Montessori OKC Curriculum
OKC Montessori provides classes that include a 3-year age span (3-6 years and 6-9 years) with specially designed areas for various activities that encourage creativity and learning. Children learn language, reading, writing, mathematics, art, music, science, cultural, and practical life. Children enter the Montessori program typically between the ages of 2-3 years. They then move through primary and preschool years. Finally, the first age group ends with kindergarten at age 6. The next age bracket goes from ages 6-9. As the child moves from the lower to upper class levels, the lessons become more abstract and collaborative, and rely more heavily on problem solving, books, discussion, and critical thinking. The Montessori materials and activities of the primary years resonate throughout the six year program and beyond, encouraging children to pursue education for life.
