AGE 3 - 5: Montessori Preschool and Pre-Primary & Kindergarten

TWO OPTIONS, ONE GOAL: CONFIDENT, INDEPENDENT LEARNERS
 

Norwood-Fontbonne Academy offers two educational options for children ages three through third grade: Montessori and Primary. We work in partnership with each family to identity the best educational path for your child's learning style. The fundamental educational philosophy of both programs empowers students to be confident and self-aware, make reflective choices, and take ownership of their learning. Our integrated approach combines academic challenge and a spiritual foundation with abundant opportunities to participate in athletics, the arts, and meaningful community service. Presentation and public speaking skills are emphasized starting at an early age. Developmentally appropriate technology is incorporated at every grade level, enabling students to adapt to new social and technological paradigms, develop critical thinking, and creatively communicate positive new ideas.
