The Children House is designed for children ages 3-6. Learning is promoted through self-direction and independence. There is a large focus on grace and courtesy, showing respect for themselves, others and their environment. Children learn at their own pace while supporting age appropriate learning goals. Children within this age range are active learners and need to move about their environment and engage with a variety of materials. Choice and social involvement are important aspects to their learning in the Montessori environment. Montessori Academy of the Upper Keys offers the children Art, Music, Spanish and cooking on a weekly basis.
