Children's House (3-6)
Our Children’s House is a three year, individualized program where the developmental needs of children ages three to six are met and nurtured. The goals for your child are focused on self-esteem, independence and order — paving the road to literacy and love and learning.
The curriculum includes work in math, language, science, geography, sensorial and practical life/ daily living.
The Kindergarten year is the final and culminating year of our Children’s House program. During this year the children receive dedicated Kindergarten community time in the afternoons and publish their Kindergarten books, which are featured at our Young Authors’ Tea each April.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does The Glen have a half-day or part-time option?
Most families choose the school day option which begins at 8:30 am – 3:30 pm, however, The Glen offers before- and after- school care for students beginning as early as 7:15 am – 5:55 pm. Some families choose a half-day option for 3- and 4-year-olds, but The Glen only offers full-day Kindergarten.
How old does my child have to be to attend Kindergarten?
The Glen’s policy on Kindergarten reflects the policy of your home school district. However, a child’s academic and social-emotional progress is never halted in a Montessori setting, regardless of that cut-off date. Some Kindergarteners are working on identifying letter sounds and some are reading chapter books.
Does The Glen provide snack/food for my child?
Each family is asked to bring in a snack in once a month for the classroom; The Glen provides the remainder of the snacks. Lunch is provided by families. On Fridays during the school year (September – May), there is the option to purchase pizza. Upper Elementary students provide this service, along with coffee in The Glen’s lobby, as a fundraiser to help support their annual attendance at the Montessori Model United Nations Conference each year.
