Academic programming

Montessori Bilingual Academy of Rockledge offers a welcoming, stimulating environment that cultivates your child’s independence, self-esteem and social & academic potential, with an individualized curriculum that will lay the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.

Mixed Ages Group Classes

Classes are characterized by simplicity, aesthetics and order to meet the needs of each child. The focus of the environment is on fostering basic trust in the child in an environment where the adult is caring, respectful and responsive to the toddler’s physical, emotional and psychological needs. It conveys the message of unconditional love and acceptance.

Montessori Bilingual Academy of Rockledge provides a warm, energetic, educational home. The child will acquire a love for learning, which will ultimately help them achieve their full potential. Our goal is to inspire children to be social, caring, and responsible human beings. Our classrooms are prepared with highly qualified Montessori certified teachers. The multi-age classrooms allow for children to learn from one another, work as a team, and learn to collaborate together.

Toddler Program (Ages 12 months – 24 months)

Our Toddlers program is designed to address the needs of this early developmental period by focusing on the processes of independent exploration, learning, and the joy of discovering the world. Toddlers receive responsive, individualized attention to help them with practical life skills, sensorial exploration, language development, development of fine and gross motor skills, investigation of the natural world through science, and an appreciation of art and music.

Toddlers enjoy group activities including songs, stories, movement, Spanish, Art and Music Together outdoor play, and snacks. Materials are carefully selected and prepared for children in this critical stage of learning and discovery.

Curriculum

Language

The primary focus at this age level is language enrichment. A vast exploration of language is done in this age group where students explore the language through their senses. They will start to develop spoken language and learn how to communicate with others. We support these milestones through books, songs, poems, and language materials. All activities are aimed to support new vocabulary and encourage open communication. Dual-Immersion in Spanish is also implemented daily, and children will hear, recognize, and learn both languages simultaneously.

Practical Life

In the Montessori Classroom, the child has the ability to choose to work themselves, they are able to complete purposeful tasks found in the real-world. In the Practical Life Curriculum, children are taught everyday jobs such as cleaning (sweeping, dusting, dusting, washing, polishing), gardening (caring for plants, nature, and the environment). It allows the child to gain independence and self-sufficiency. Children gain self-confidence by completing their work independently and master the skills to successfully complete the tasks.

Motor Skill & Problem Solving

In the Montessori Classroom, each child is evaluated and a curriculum is adapted specifically for them. We believe each child is their own individual person and must be treated as so. Our curriculum is based on the child’s development, and formulate it to meet their basic needs and standards. We develop activities for the child to understand cause and effect, make choices, solve problems, and pursue goals. All activities also focus on fine and large motor skills.

Grace and Courtesy

We strive for every child to learn and understand the importance of respect, consideration, grace, and courtesy. Mixed-age groups allow for the child to communicate with others, to learn from others, and to collaborate together. Our educators will show the child courteous interactions, instead of constantly correcting the child’s behavior. These interactions are ultimately imitated by the child.

Primary Program (Ages 3½ – 6 years)

This is a 3 year program. It allows for the older children (Kindergartners) to become the leaders, mentors, helpers, and role models to the younger children. In return the younger children, admire the older children and successfully learn from their peers.

We provide intriguing learning materials that encourage engagement and a joy of learning. Students learn through hands-on experience, investigation, and research. They become actively engaged in their studies, rather than passive listeners.

Allows for concentration, and it prepares the child for writing by strengthening fine motor skills. The child will comprehend problem-solving which is the foundation of creative expression, including science, math, programming, writing, art, engineering, and athletics.

Sensorial

Provides didactic material aiding the child’s exploration of certain aspects of the environment such as dimension, color, texture, temperature, length, shape, etc. Allows the child to arrange, classify, and describe the impressions of the surrounding world. Many of the sensorial activities are directly related to math and geometry concepts and help create an order for your child’s mind in preparation for mathematical concepts.

Mathematics
