Why is my Child Spooning Beans?                          Small World Logo (2)
The Importance of a Montessori Education
Sponsored by Small World Montessori
At first glance, a Montessori classroom is not like that of any other.  Upon entering you may find a child spooning beans between 2 dishes, another working with a map of South America, or playing the bells by scale.  These are just a few of the unique activities in a Montessori classroom. We offer a homelike environment in which we approach education of the “whole child” through hands on, self-directed activities.

How is it possible that children are working independently at their own activities?  Read More…The environment is carefully staged with progressively difficult, self-correcting materials, and most instruction is delivered one on one. Our extensive curriculum spans from 2 1/2 through 6 years old.  The mixed age classroom allows the child to work at her own pace and since instruction is individual, no child is left behind or forced to wait.  Children in the Montessori environment develop long attention spans, independence, social grace, and a joy in learning.

Small World Montessori recently opened our toddler room, the first in Southeastern Wisconsin to offer a Montessori education to very young children.  True to Montessori form, the children are offered freedom to choose their work within a safe space with the guiding rules of respect for others and for the environment.  Our introductory classroom allows for a smaller teacher to student ratio, ensuring each child is given the attention they need at this developmental stage.

We also offer an Extended Day program which allows more time for individual and social development for our 4 and 5 year olds.  Following the morning time, extended day begins with lunch and continues with more advanced lessons.  In addition, we offer weekly Spanish lessons, art instruction, yoga classes, and science experiments.

We invite you to tour our beautiful classrooms and see their extensive age appropriate curriculum at our Open House this Sunday, February 10th from 1:00-3:00PM.  If you are unable to come this Sunday, we would love for you to see our classrooms in action so you can experience for yourself the joy of a Montessori education.  Call or e-mail to schedule a visit.  (262)632-6797 small_world@att.net
