Following Maria Montessori’s common sense philosophy, we have chosen not to break our classes down by age groups. Montessori espoused the idea that teaching children in age “ranges” was more beneficial to her students.
“As she watched the children busily going about their work Montessori realized that it was natural and very easy for the younger children to learn by watching and listening to the older children. In fact she saw that children learn best this way and that something wonderful happened when a community of children could actively support and help each other. Montessori schools therefore encourage children of all ages to work together as a social group and do not normally split children by sex or age.”(http://www.montessori.org.uk/)
Younger children tend to imitate the activities of the older children and their learning is accelerated by using that resource. The older children like to “show what they know” and they essentially “teach” the younger children the skills that they have mastered. It is said that one hasn’t truly mastered a skill until one can teach it to someone else. This is especially true in early childhood. Mother Nature Academy can provide these opportunities for our students simply by offering mixed-age classes. To that end, we offer three schedules from which you can choose to enroll your child, regardless of his or her age:
2 days per week (Tuesday and Thursday 9:00am -12:00pm) $250/month
3 days per week (Monday, Wednesday & Friday 9:00am -12:00pm) $300/month
5 days per week (Monday through Friday 9:00am -12:00pm) $400/month
There is an annual registration fee of $100 (this is non-refundable).
The slots we have available for each schedule are limited and are first come, first served based on when we receive the $100 registration fee.
