We are currently expanding Montessori programs throughout our company. Check to see if your local Rainbow Child Center offers a Montessori program. If you can’t find a Montessori program near you, let us know and we’ll build one.

Montessori curriculum takes a structured approach to education, tailoring lessons to each child’s unique interests, strengths and talents in a multi-age classroom. Children are provided uninterrupted blocks of work time where they learn through hands-on, self-correcting education tools.
Under the guidance of a trained Montessori teacher, children in a Montessori classroom learn by making discoveries with the materials, cultivating concentration, motivation and self-discipline.
The Montessori environment includes language, mathematics, sensorial, practical life skills, cultural studies, science, geography, history, music and art. Specifically designed Montessori materials are included in each of the curriculum areas.
High academic achievement is common in a Montessori environment. To assess development, Montessori teachers use a combination of daily observations and written notes. Unlike other many educational approaches, these assessments do not result in a letter grade; instead, children are evaluated on a sliding scale of progress. These assessments are completed twice a year, allowing teachers to share developmental strides during Rainbow’s parent-teacher conferences in November and May.
