Monument View Montessori Charter School offers Primary Education (preschool, starting at age 3, through Kindergarten) and Elementary (1st through 3rd grade), and Before and After School Care (before and after care is dependent on enrollment and staffing).
Primary – Kindergarten
Preschool and Kindergarten, ages 3 – 6, is a mixed-aged classroom. We currently have a ‘lower’ and ‘upper’ Primary classroom. The preschool children are part of the tuition-based private program, and Kindergartners are part of the state-funded public Charter school (there is no tuition for Kindergarteners). The Primary program is organized to complement the natural development of children aged 3-6, in a structured, peaceful environment that encourages independence, concentration, order, coordination and the joy for learning. Each child’s abilities and interests are nurtured and respected through the guidance of trained Montessori teachers; children are encouraged to move through our Montessori curriculum at their own pace in uninterrupted work cycles.
Self-correcting Montessori lessons and multi-sensory materials move from concrete to abstract, and our students are provided extensive activities in Practical Life, Peace Education, Language, Sensorial, Math, Geography/ Cultural and Science. Within a supportive, fun community of younger and older learners, our Montessori Primary program is a stepping stone for joyful, self-actualized, self-disciplined, kind, respectful, helpful and peaceful children.
We utilize the Dibels Literacy and Star Math assessment tools and Transparent Classroom to ensure the alignment of Colorado State Standards with our Montessori curriculum to ensure our student’s academic success. Our Kindergarten students are fully prepared to enter into the Lower Elementary years, and thrive.
Lower Elementary consists of 1st-3rd, ages 6-9. Students use hands-on materials to engage in all curricular subjects. In addition to traditional academic subjects, our curriculum includes peace education, cosmic education, grace and courtesy lessons, and cultural studies.
At this plane of development, children ages 6-9 are developing their social mores and their independence from adults. Students learn to manage freedom and self-discipline in an environment that is prepared for them by the Montessori teacher. They are able to move freely around the classroom and choose works from all curricular areas. Students are also able to work on special interest projects throughout the year. These students truly begin to take ownership of their education, while learning time management, and presentation skills, and growing in their love of learning.
