About Ha’penny Montessori School
Giving your child the Montessori experienceHMS accepts children aged 10 weeks through kindergarten. We offer part time and full time programs to cater to everyone’s needs. At HMS, we believe in educating the “whole child”. Starting with our infants, children are nurtured and educated in an environment that is designed to meet their physical, emotional, and educational needs. Through role play and practice, our teachers assist students in learning personal responsibility through peaceful conflict resolution. Every child is encouraged to have a positive outlook on learning and oneself. Being a small school allows close involvement among employees, children and their families. This creates a sense of community and allows each child to feel valued for their individuality and, HMS parents become a crucial partner in their child’s education. Ha’penny Montessori School offers part time and full time programs. All of our programs have mixed age groups. This is one of the reason that makes a Montessori classroom a successful learning place. The younger children learn from the older children and the older children mentor the younger children. The older children also learn patience, tolerance and how to be good role models. Our Infant Program accepts children aged 10 weeks through 18 months. We understand that each child develops differently and that some children are ready to move to the next level before others. We offer part time options in our Infant Program. Our infant room is spacious and bright and allows for great exploration for our little ones. We put no more than 8 infants in our Infant program with a teacher and a teacher’s assistant. Our Toddler Program accepts children aged 16 months through 3 years of age. We offer 3, 4 and 5 day programs! Our Primary Program accepts children aged 3 years of age through 6 years age.
HMS offers a full day Kindergarten program or an afternoon kindergarten enrichment program. Children who attend morning kindergarten at LCPS can benefit from our afternoon kindergarten enrichment program.
Our kindergarten program offers a challenging and comprehensive curriculum to ensure that each child receives the individualized attention needed to excel. The full day program consists of a multi-age classroom experience each morning, followed by an exclusive kindergarten experience in the afternoon.
At HMS, academic subjects are introduced through concrete materials. There is a great emphasis on having the children use these manipulative, which lay down the groundwork for future abstract learning and thinking.
One significant and important difference between what HMS offers kindergarteners and what is offered by many more traditional programs is how we help the young child “learn how to learn”. Our focus is on teaching for understanding.Please call or visit us online for more information!
