Tender Treasures Montessori School offers a full time program. Our full day program consists of five full days per week. Fees for all programs are available by contacting the school.
Infants – 6 weeks to 18 Months
This unique program offers a caring and stimulating environment designed to meet the individual needs of each child. Personalized schedules, feeding times and daily charting help each child and parents to develop at their own pace. Time is spent both indoors and outdoors and children are encouraged to explore their world in a safe and loving environment. Children will be introduced to the Montessori curriculum. Daily activities, crafts, songs, games and age appropriate educational toys all combine to provide the perfect atmosphere for growing minds and bodies.
Teacher/child ratio is 1:3
Toddlers – 18 to 30 Months
We offer a full day program for toddlers focusing on both physical and mental growth. Toddlers are given the freedom to explore in a safe and stimulating environment. With the teacher’s guidance, basic rules, routines and social interactions are encouraged. The toddler program will continue to offer your child a more in depth opportunity at a well balanced curriculum that focuses on the Montessori philosophy. A wide variety of planned indoor and outdoor activities are included each day. Toddlers will be fed lunch and two snacks a day in small groups. A nap or rest period will be provided for approximately two hours every day. We provide a toilet training routine and a daily charting system to assist parents.

Casa Program – 2 ½ to 6 Years
We offer a five full-day program so your child can continue to build upon the learning experiences and foundations acquired in our Toddler Program. The younger children in the Casa Program are ready to learn many new concepts including colors, shapes, numbers, size, position, patterning, sequencing, vocabulary, and listening skills. The older children will expand their reading and math skills in order to prepare themselves for first grade. Our Casa program offers extra attention for your child with considerably lower child/teacher ratio’s than is currently available in the mainstream school system. Your child’s day is still continuously designed to meet their physical, emotional, social and cognitive needs via a stimulating Montessori curriculum geared towards the various age groups. There is also plenty of time for running, jumping, climbing, dancing and developing social skills by functioning as part of a group. All of these skills are presented in a fun-filled way both inside the classroom, on the computer and out in the playground. Lunch and two snacks a day are provided.
