OUR CURRICULUM
The curriculum in a Montessori environment is integrated and open-ended to permit each student to learn at his or her own pace and to explore areas of interest. The school day is structured to enable the student to work in several of the curriculum areas. View our Faculty and Staff or view our Programs.


PRACTICAL LIFE
Practical Life can best be characterized as exercises in daily living. Using the child’s natural desires, exercises are structured for care of the environment, for care of self, and for basic lessons in grace and courtesy. It is through these activities in the practical life area that the child develops order, concentration, coordination, independence, and self-confidence. Engaging in these activities enables the child to become more aware of details and to begin to develop good work habits.


SENSORIAL
Exercises in the Sensorial area allow the child freedom for spontaneous discoveries as he concentrates on the training of his senses. The materials increase the child’s ability to perceive, categorize, and understand impressions of his world. These materials enable the child to refine discriminatory skills regarding form, size, color, weight, taste, texture, temperature, and sound.


MATHMATICS
Mathematics in the Montessori environment begins with exercises using concrete material. The child associates the quantity to the number symbol by holding the quantity in his hand. Manipulation of the concrete materials in all facets of mathematics enables the child to gain an understanding of mathematical operations and processes. The child is able to work at his own pace to fully utilize concrete material to understand abstract concepts.


LANGUAGE ARTS
Vocabulary enrichment, self-expression, and auditory development are integral parts of the Language Arts area. Curricular activities demonstrate a true phonetic approach to reading. Manipulative exercises with concrete materials expose the child to key sounds, composition, penmanship, grammar, and word studies. The goal of the language arts area is to open the entire world, with all its possibilities, to the child who has mastered reading, no matter at what age.


GEOGRAPHY
Geography provides the child with a perspective of the world and its countries. Globes and puzzle maps enable the child to explore the world, continents, and countries. Areas in the world are presented to the child by comparing basic needs and similarities. The child is exposed to a country’s customs, clothing, food, and shelter. Types of vegetation, animal life, soil, and climates of countries are also introduced.


SCIENCE
Science includes general science, botany, and zoology. The child is encouraged to analyze and to become more aware of the natural world around him through identification, classification, and experimentation.


ART
Art gives the child an opportunity to express himself creatively. Throughout the school year, various media is presented to give the child a free choice in his exploration of style and form.


HISTORY
History is studied as the story of our common heritage as members of the human family. The study of history helps students to develop a perspective and understanding of global cultures. The goal is to help the students realize their importance in the world-wide community.


MUSIC
Music stresses exploration of rhythm, sound, and pitch through movement, singing, and the use of instruments and recordings. The child experiences music as both participant and audience.


MOTOR DEVELOPMENT
Motor development offers exercises in small muscle coordination, as well as gross motor activities. The weekly physical education activities for our elementary students are designed to stimulate interest in activities that last a lifetime.

MCS contracts with Language Stars to provide Spanish instruction for our kindergarten and elementary students. For additional information about Language Stars visit their website at click for details.

More About this Event Poster: Montessori Children's Schoolhouse

OUR MISSION
Montessori Children’s Schoolhouse is a parent-owned school implementing Montessori principles to develop independent, competent and socially responsible individuals. Our mission is to use qualified staff, enriched Montessori environments, and parental involvement to develop the social, emotional, and cognitive needs of our culturally diverse student enrollment.


ACCREDITATION
In 1990, Montessori Children’s Schoolhouse was among the first Montessori schools in the nation to be fully accredited by the American Montessori Society. MCS continues to demonstrate compliance with the standards for accreditation prescribed by the American Montessori Society.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
MCS was founded for the purpose of providing educational curriculum and facilities based upon the methods and educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori philosophy recognized that a child’s early years are the most formative and that a child’s ability to acquire knowledge is enhanced through the manipulation of concrete material. The carefully prepared environment is structured to meet the individual needs of each child, thus allowing children to progress at their own pace.

The environment is prepared to address all aspects of the child’s development. The Montessori curriculum, which interrelate basic, scientific, and cultural areas, is designed to provide materials and activities to furnish unlimited sources of discoveries and to offer constant challenges to be mastered. Our goal is to enable children not only to develop an appreciation of learning, but also to develop to their potential.


OUR HISTORY
Montessori Children’s Schoolhouse was established in 1968 as a not-for-profit organization by a group of interested parents. These parents were dedicated to the ideals of the Montessori philosophy and recognized the need for an early learning experience for their own children. They believed that direct parental control of the school, with voluntary support and with a highly competent staff, was the best means of assuring a quality program.

In its first academic year (1968–1969), Montessori Children’s Schoolhouse had an enrollment of 28 students in its preschool. Since that time, a toddler program, an extended day/kindergarten program, an elementary program, and a before and after school program have been added. The school’s enrollment now exceeds 180 students.

Our present location was purchased in 1984. The building, originally built in 1926 for Northern States Life Insurance Company, was declared a local historical landmark by the Common Council of the City of Hammond in 1985. In June 2010, Northern States Life Insurance Company was entered in the Indiana Register of Historic Sites and Structures and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
