3 Programs Options:

  • Stepping Stones into Montessori

  • Montessori Preschool

  • Montessori Kindergarten

The Stepping Stones into Montessori, Montessori Preschool, and Montessori Kindergarten programs together offer a curriculum that fosters the developmental milestones of the child from 2 ½ through 6 years of age. These programs bring to life the Montessori philosophy in carefully prepared environments to nurture the growth of each individual child.  Concrete hands-on experiences challenge the child’s natural curiosity to learn and explore while fostering the development of the whole child. The structure of the room and the sequence of materials support the child’s desire for independence and the developing sense of order and concentration. Respect for and care of all things is central to our classroom community.  Learn more about our Montessori curriculum.

The Academy offers several options to meet your family’s need for early education in the Philadelphia surrounding area.  Our Stepping Stones into Montessori program offers a three or five day program with  full or half day options.  Our Montessori Preschool is a five day program with half or full day options.  The Preschool level is mixed ages including the Pre-K year. Children attending our preschool for 2-3 years before moving onto our K program have the option to begin in our Stepping Stones program before their Pre-K year or to begin right away in our Preschool.  The Stepping Stones into Montessori program is designed especially as a child’s first preschool experience which fosters being part of a school community.  Students should be potty-trained before entering our programs.
