After months of searching for the right daycare for my daughter Ranjana, we were convinced that we had found the best when we walked into Alpha Montessori. As any other parent, we were relieved to find a peaceful place that is always immaculately clean and has big, open rooms. My baby started to go to Alpha Montessori since she was 14 months old. After the first few days of my baby attending school, we found that it’s not just that the place is clean. Ms. Rupali strives hard to keep the kids clean and smell fresh all the time. We have never seen my daughter with a dirty mouth or a dirty dress. Ms. Rupali has been a real blessing to us. We have never seen my daughter cry when we leave her at the day care. Not just that, she has learned a lot of good habits: she eats by herself, puts everything in the right place (without me telling her to do so), identifies flash cards already, tries to mimic and sing the ABC song and above everything, communicates very clearly as to what her needs are. Above all, when we go to work, we go very peacefully thinking that she is in a place that loves her so much. Last but not least, we had our 7 year old son attend the summer school and his comments were – “Mom, Ms. Rupali is really nice to Ranjana and she never raises her voice to her or any other kid. She talks to them nicely and all the kids listen too!” He is also ready to go there for the after school program now. We would highly recommend Alpha Montessori to any parent. Thanks for all you do Rupali and keep up the great work!

Specialty

Alpha Montessori provides a rich array of specialty academic programs that span all ages and that support the core Montessori curriculum at each level. These specialty classes are lead by highly skilled teachers who engage learners to stretch and express themselves creatively, academically, physically, and socially. As in the Montessori classroom, the specialty teachers build communities where children learn effective communication for sharing ideas and resolving conflicts.

Art

Creative expression is essential in a Montessori education. Students learn to think creatively, to use their “right brains,” and to take risks with ideas and materials. The Alpha Montessori art experience provides space to veer off on a new direction, experiment and self-evaluate art work as part of the creative process.

To nurture their creativity, the Art teacher brings a variety of resources and materials into each Primary classroom to support and expand the array of art materials present in each Montessori classroom. Students join the Art teacher for direct instruction and hands-on practice with a wide assortment of techniques and mediums. The students explore art history, artists, movements and periods through their own studies and compositions. All students learn respect for others and their work as well as respect and care for materials and tools used in the visual arts.

Our Art teacher works collaboratively with our Montessori teachers to integrate their curriculum themes into the Art experience. The study of Ancient Egypt might yield an Art project using clay to create accurate representations of pyramids or sarcophagi. A classroom production of the great classic “Wind in the Willows” might include students creating character puppets down to the last detail of fur and clothing.

Student artwork is exhibited throughout the school to celebrate student creativity and work.

Music

Our music program was created to foster a great sense of joy in “making music” along with a focus on skills development. Concepts of tonal and rhythmic competencies are developed through creative exploration to help children develop listening skills and an internal understanding of rhythmic and harmonic elements. The social and performance aspects of music are also woven into the learning experience and change according to level.

Music class for toddlers and primary students provides plenty of physical movement so they can feel the rhythms as they listen to a wide variety of music, sing, and learn about musical instruments. Lower Elementary students delve deeper into music literacy and experience scales, harmony, and learning to sing and play instruments together.

Physical Education

Our Physical Education program allows children to develop motor patterns, practice skills, experience a variety of sports and games, learn rules of the game and practice good sportsmanship.

From Toddler through Elementary School, all children at AMS are part of a greater effort to nurture healthy lifestyle habits and physical activity that is part of their daily lives. Finding activities that will foster a life-long love of physical fitness and activity is the focus. Our aim is to support students in achieving their “personal best” and to experience a wide range of activities, movement, and sports in an atmosphere of teamwork and collaboration.

Spanish

Our Spanish program is focused on promoting enjoyment in leaning the Spanish language through listening, speaking, writing and exploration of Spanish-speaking counties and cultures.

Staring in Toddler class, children experience the sounds and richness of the Spanish language through songs, games, and engaging activities. The Spanish curriculum includes basic vocabulary, counting, and colors. As students progress through our Primary and Elementary programs, their time in Spanish class increases and they begin to study Spanish grammar, vocabulary, and the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world.
