    School Overview:
    Beth Montessori is a Jewish Montessori preschool, serving children ages 9 months through 6 years –
    Infant Community, Toddlers, Preschool, and Kindergarten – and offers an integrated secular and Judaic
    curriculum based on Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy and principles.

    Each child is guided by certified professionals in a “self-directed learning environment that fosters
    independence, responsibility, respect for others, and a love of learning.” The Judaic program – rich in
    Jewish values, culture and traditions – provides the foundation for children to develop their Jewish
    identity.

    Additionally, Beth Montessori school provides a Bilingual Program, exposing students to both English
    and Spanish. Each classroom has two trained Montessori Guides – one of which solely speaks in fluent
    English, while the other solely in fluent Spanish. According to the school, “since this fluent exposure is
    separated by the context of each individual Guide, the children learn each language fluently and
    separately.”

    Located on the newly remodeled grounds of Congregation Beth El, the preschool adheres to the
    standards and principles of AMI (Association Montessori International). At Beth Montessori, children
    progress at their own pace, choosing materials from a number of options; by selecting activities
    according to their natural interest, children experience the joy of learning. Judaic studies are woven into
    the curriculum through music, holiday celebration and stories, enabling students to form a connection
    with their Jewish heritage.
