American Montessori Campus offers a number of programs designed to fit your child’s preschool and childcare needs. Our Infant, Toddler, Pre-Primary, Primary, and Kindergarten Programs are tailored for the age of our children to maximize the effectiveness of our methods. We have outlined each of our programs below.
The American Montessori Campus infant program is committed to promoting quality infant care for children from six weeks to 12 months, based on a number of key concepts.
Learn more about these concepts and our Infant Program.
Designed as a gentle transition from home to school, our program encourages cooperative learning, fosters a sense of community among children and provides the toddlers increasing independence.

The Pre-Primary program is designed around the basic Montessori concept of “freedom within limits.” The environment is prepared with age-appropriate materials and exercises that encourage each child’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm. The equipment in the prepared classroom environment and outdoor area, as well as the consistency of our routines, has all been carefully designed to foster the development of our youngest students.

In this classroom the traditional Montessori mixed age grouping becomes more noticeable. Peer mentoring adds to the excitement as the younger child observes what he will soon learn and the older child has an opportunity to fully master her new skill by teaching it to someone else. By the time a child graduates to the elementary level he will have the foundations of reading and writing, have an understanding of addition and subtraction and know the continents of the world and the countries of at least one continent. Most importantly the child will be experienced at thinking independently, working in a concentrated manner for an extended period of time and best of all be an expert problem solver. These are the skills that will serve him the rest of his life.
