The Program at The Montessori Children’s House of Nantucket
The Montessori Children’s House of Nantucket Program engages the absorbent mind of the 3- to 6-year-old child through self-selected work and constructive activity. Indoors, low shelves contain openly displayed manipulatives and make materials readily accessible. Small tables and chairs or floor mats define workspace, provide order, and offer the child the choice of working independently or in a small group. Outdoors, opportunities for exploration of the natural world abound. Whether indoors or out, the classroom is a joyful place that supports the child in the task of self-construction and nurtures the child's sense of wonder.
Due to the unique layout of our school, we are able to provide a breadth of experiences in all areas of the Montessori classroom throughout the building. Each area is designed to assist the child in the development of concentration, coordination of mind and body, independence, order, and self-discipline.
