Our Curriculum

The curriculum at Countryside Montessori is developed with your child’s individual learning style in mind. Our hands-on approach will give your child the independence to self-teach while we guide them on the right path towards successful and holistic learning. They will make new discoveries every day that they would not normally be able to in a traditional classroom.

Our child-centered learning curriculum focuses on repetition of a skill, task, or subject until mastery! Students move at their pace, repeating until they feel comfortable in the understanding of said subject or skill.

Practical Life Skills

The practical life area of the classroom is designed to strengthen fine motor skills and physical coordination needed for a child to function independently in his own environment. In our classroom, the practical life area is one of the most valued and utilized learning areas in our classroom. This area allows the child to practice and perfect their coordination, concentration, independence, and organizational skills. As a result, your child can apply these skills and excel in other academic areas.

Sensorial Learning

The Sensorial area helps your child develop each of their five senses by helping them distinguish, categorize, and relate new information to what they already know. The Sensorial exercises, also, develop order and intelligence through the senses.


Math can be one of the more frustrating and harder to learn subjects in traditional education. At Countryside Montessori, however, math is made more enjoyable. We use concrete materials to represent all types of quantities to engage your child in the basic operations of mathematics — combining, separating, sharing, counting, and comparing. No longer should math be considered a disliked subject! By touching and moving actual items, your child will learn to love math.


The language area is crucial for the development of your child, especially between ages 2.5 through 6 of age. While traditional language development only uses two of the five senses, language activities at Countryside Montessori engage three of the five senses. Your child will use touch, sight, and sounds to learn language and phonetics. Along with additional hands-on activities to foster language development through repetition.

And More!

In addition to the learning areas outlined above, your child will be engaged in multiple other subjects, such as units in Science, geography, cooking, basic Spanish, and basic sign language. These units are not meant to provide proficiency but are introductory and establish a layer of Emergent Learning.
