Early Childhood

Serving Children Ages 2 1/2 through 6 of Philadelphia and its Suburbs


We recognize the importance of multi-sensory, hands-on learning in a well-prepared environment to foster the child’s natural curiosity to learn and explore.

Our Early Childhood program consists of Stepping Stones into Montessori, Preschool Montessori, and Kindergarten Montessori.  Following the standards for AMS Montessori Classrooms, our Montessori Preschool and Kindergarten program is designed to meet the individual pace and development of each child.  Language, math, culture, science, and other Montessori areas are presented in individual and group lessons. The curriculum is enriched by weekly specialty classes in music, Spanish, gym, art, technology, library, yoga, religion, and sign language classes. Self-confidence grows with each new discovery, providing a foundation for the primary grades where they are prepared to meet the rigor of our elementary curriculum.
