Enrichment Studios at The Montessori School of Silicon Valley
Studio Enrichment at the Montesorri School of Silicon Valley
“If we try to think back to the dim and distant past… what is it that helps us reconstruct those times, and to picture the lives of those who lived in them? it is their art… It is thanks to the hand, the companion of the mind, that civilization has arisen.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori
Rather than “daycare or after-care”, the Montessori School of Silicon Valley is very proud to provide children educational enrichment studios every afternoon.
The fully implemented Montessori curriculum continues all through the morning each day. The Studio Enrichment Programs are offered in the afternoon program and are in addition to everything we already offer.
Each Studio has a specialized teacher who works along side the Montessori guides. The children are still able to choose Montessori work or participate in the studio.
Enhancing the Educational Experience
Each Studio Enrichment Programs enhances the child’s educational experience at the Montessori School of Silicon Valley. Programs for Art, Science, Gardening and Cooking are offered in 12 week sessions from 4 pm to 6 pm daily.
Children in the afternoon program can choose the studio program, Montessori curriculum, independent art, cultural and other practical life activities in the classroom.
The Enrichment Studios are designed to be “process centered”. However, at the end of each 12 week session, an “Opening” is prepared. This is an opportunity for the children to show off their work in the studio.
