Math Program (Tues/Thurs)
Our Math program is a beautiful combination of Montessori and Waldorf learning concepts. Montessori math manipulatives will be introduced to learn various math concepts. Depending on the child's level, the Montessori K-3 curriculum includes number recognition, decimal system, geometry, four operations of math: addition, multiplication, subtraction and division. Waldorf's beautiful math fairy tales and art projects help children create and solve their own word problems, building a strong foundation for future Algebra concepts.
