Children ages 5 to 7, will study a combination of Kindergarten and First Grade using a

Montessori base with a Lively Arts, mindfulness, and inclusivity influenced curriculum. We aim

to educate the whole child: their mind, body, and heart.

During their day the students will spend most of their time with their main teacher exploring

Circle Time/Story Time, Literature, Theatre, Poetry, Writing, Math, Spelling, Show and Tell, and

Art. They will also participate in Movement/P.E. and Gardening/Nature Studies classes with

our those teachers during the day.

As part of their Language Arts lessons the teacher will read, explore, and enact stories with

them each week which will be based on Historical Figures, current Holidays, animals, themes of

kindness and mindfulness, science, nature, or seasonal occasions. Students will then create an

artistic depiction of the story through drawing or painting. During this time, students will also

practice writing and spelling.

Math instruction will include a story component as well as focusing on learning about the 

four processes of math — addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will also be

introduced to Roman numerals. Math will be very hands-on and include multiple learning

techniques and activities.

Three to four snack times, and outdoor times, will be included in the day so that students have a natural balance of active play time and time to quietly focus. (PLEASE NOTE:  WE ARE A NUT FREE FACILITY!

natural journal to help further their studies and enhance their knowledge of the natural world

around them.

SCIENCE OF FLORIDA - Instructor: Ms. Jen: Science is all around us, especially in such a

unique state as Florida!  Florida’s diverse features will be a jumping off point for this class to

study a wide range of science topics.  We’ll look at physical science through topics like ocean

waves and roller coasters; Earth science through our weather and geology; biology through

Florida’s animals and ecosystems; and more!  We’ll anchor ourselves in real-life subjects and

the kids’ own experiences, but generalize them to fundamental science topics that will set a

basis for studying science in higher grades.  Students who took biology with us in 2020-21 will

be able to build on the topics we introduced that year as we move into wider biological concepts like ecology and invasive species.

MOVEMENT/PHYSICAL EDUCATION - Instructor: Ms. Kaitlyn:  It’s time to get our bodies moving and 

shaking in this fun,stress-free movement based class. We will be exploring different types of

PHYSICAL SCIENCE - Instructor: Ms. Jen: What’s the chemistry in your laundry room?  How can you invert a bucket of water over your head without getting wet?  Why can’t you pinch your nose and hum at the same time?  Physical science is the study of matter, energy, and the changes they undergo.  This class covers a range of basic concepts in physics and chemistry, and sets students up to understand the underlying causes of complex phenomena.  We will use lecture, discussion, hands-on activities, and basic scientific math to set students up for success in these fundamental subjects.  Topics in chemistry will include matter, states of matter, elements, atoms, bonding, and chemical reactions.  Topics in physics will include waves, sound, light, motion, forces, work, energy, magnetism, and electricity.  The course will use the middle school textbook “Science Explorer: Physical Science”, and optional, differentiated weekly homework will be offered.
