Curriculum nights are coming - and all parents are encouraged to attend. These important parent education evenings provide an important perspective of Montessori lessons, strategies and tools that are used to take your child from one program level to the next. Parents are welcome to attend any and all programs to get a sense of how each program level is a building block for the next in your child's Oak Meadow education.
Oak Meadow School's curriculum, from Children's House through Middle School, is organized into a spiral of studies across math, language, practical life, sensorial, art, geography, history and science. Lessons, given simply and concretely in early years, are reinforced several times over successive years, with increasing degrees of abstraction and difficulty. This differs from traditional curriculum models which tend to offer specific subjects only once at a given grade level. Additionally, Oak Meadow's Montessori curriculum is carefully structured to integrate and complement different subject areas. Save the date and don't miss these informative and engaging evenings with Oak Meadow's talented faculty!
