The curriculum at Montessori School of Cherry Creek is designed to
build child development through the practice of the following areas:
Practical life is designed to develop a child's gross
and fine motor skills which materials such as spooning, polishing,
clothes washing, pouring etc.
Sensorial makes a child experience and perceive different
sizes, shapes, colors, weights, tastes and textures of diverse material
provided by the environment. An array of activities assist the child
to sense and understand the information it receives from the environment.
Mathematics is designed so children can learn to see,
feel and lay a rich foundation for the understanding of numbers and
arithmetic. As the child becomes more and more comfortable with the
material inputs become more abstract and interesting.
Emphasis is placed on learning the sounds each letter
makes rather than the alphabet. The auditory and visual tracking skills
are horned along with developing the small motor skills used in writing.
