School in the Woods Montessori Preschool classroom is designed to support the 3- to 6-year-old child’s natural curiosity and interest in his world. It allows the child to learn in a place of beauty, order, and rich opportunity. The Preschool classroom is well organized to allow children the freedom to select from a wide variety of engaging activities that entice them to follow their innate drive to learn.


The Montessori Preschool classroom provides a rich curriculum that has both depth and breadth in all subject areas. Children are encouraged to follow their natural desire for repetition and are given lessons on new activities when they are ready.


Daily group times (called “line”) present opportunities to share verbally; explore literature; experience science and cultural lessons; and participate in music, movement and rhythm activities. Outdoor time is included each day, where children develop important social skills and are provided an array of opportunities for interacting with the natural world in an atmosphere of unstructured play.


The Preschool program meets five days a week for three hours each day. Classes are held in the mornings or in the afternoons. A teacher-to-child ratio of 1-to-10 is maintained in each class.
