Extended Day 2017

3:30pm – 6:00pm

Our extended day bilingual program (Spanish) focuses on exciting and fun activities led by our classroom teachers or other specialists from the neighborhood that come in to work with our children with our support. Activities are in Spanish, last 45 minutes and are offered once a week. Signing up for both activities in one day allows your child to remain at CE Montessori from 3:30 – 6pm, otherwise children must be dropped off up to 15 minutes before the class begins and picked up immediately after.

Extended Day begins everyday at 3:30 when school is in session, signups are for the entire semester and sessions and pricing reflect days missed in the semester.

Our Mission

At c'e Montessori we prepare the child to transform his world, without prejudice to what that world will be, which child will transform it or how it needs to be transformed. We respect the potential of the child and the fundamentals of our ideas enough to ignore the realities of this world long enough to allow our students to imagine it different.

Our Curriculum

Montessori is Moving

Humans were meant to move, exercise, explore. In Montessori this never stops. We allow our children to move, to discover, to think and learn on their feet. Lessons are short, sitting around is minimal.

Montessori is Manipulatives

The connections between our hands and our brains are crucial to strong early childhood development. Here, we learn through our hands using Montessori materials, we build our knowledge and our experience through touch. There are no screens, no handouts no lectures. The Montessori Method relies on a classroom that we interact with constantly by moving through it, touching it, and manipulating it.

Montessori is Choice

Kids like coming to school in the morning because they know the day is theirs. The choices that they make and the work that they explore is entirely up to them. Adults are there to guide. A relationship to learning and empowerment is developed from the very first day of school.

Montessori is Community

Everyone has a job in a Montessori classroom. Everyone is a teacher to their peers and learns from their peers. Because we realize the importance of this in developing patience and confidence, Montessori classrooms are multi-aged. Children need only look to slightly older classmates for guidelines on how they should be behaving, exploring, learning. In turn, mentoring younger friends develops true and natural pride and confidence.

Another important part of forming a community is conflict resolution. In our classrooms we provide tools and teach our students techniques to resolve problems on their own. Through practice, guidance and understanding, the Montessori classroom teaches children to respect themselves and each other.

Beyond being responsible for their own learning and classroom community, we focus on the child’s responsibility to his world through peace education and their crucial role in protecting the environment.

Our Promise



Be Accountable

In a classroom, the greatest freedom comes in a perfectly organized and accountable system. By closely tracking student data we create the greatest possible freedom. Then, we make that data transparent, interesting and available to number-conscious parents, so that they are willing to embark in the adventure alongside their children.



Work Year Round

Free of constraints of group scheduling - our school year is constant. Vacations are taken whenever is convenient, data follows students. Forget compromising crucial family adventures and experiences. No more summer drop-off, scheduling nightmares or life decisions depending on school.



Let Go

c'e pentagon

As parents, we all cherish that moments where we happily take our hands off our child's shoulders and let them go forward in happy, safe discovery. At c’e, we create an environment where that feeling is constant. When we allow our kids a safe, interesting and accountable space that they own and create, we allow them the freedom to discover their passions and create their world.

Our Program

Primary

In our Primary program 2, 3 and 4-year-old students work cooperatively and independently in the prepared environment. Our traditional Montessori curriculum includes language skills, mathematics, reading and writing, geography, science, and culture. Beyond these focus areas, children are encouraged to become increasingly independent and active participants in the learning process.

Small groups and individual instruction characterize the program. Teachers move throughout the classroom, facilitating children’s work choices and social interactions as they carefully observe and record the key points of each child’s day. An open, three hour work period encourages children to develop concentration, to make their own choices, and to learn to manage increasing portions of their time independently.

The Primary program includes lessons and experiences with music, Spanish, and physical education including yoga, dance and movement. Like the traditional Montessori curriculum, these curricular areas are also taught in small group lessons as well as through individual materials. Every Primary classroom is led by a fluent Spanish speaker and is built to accommodate Spanish speaking students.

Tuition

As an independent and Montessori school program, our focus is building a rich, diverse community around our mission and vision and supporting families that have the desire of being part of that work. Our prospective families are encouraged to attend open houses, meet with us, and become familiar with the Montessori method and the independent school movement. We interview parents and children as part of our process to ensure we have a community that understands the Montessori classroom and chooses it for their child.

Outside of Open Houses, parent tours during the school year are granted by emailing admissions@Montessoribrooklyn.com. There is an application fee of $50 for processing applications and sending out letters of enrollment as well as carrying out our phase-in process.
