About Our Programs
We offer a variety of programs for children aged 6 weeks through 12 years old.
Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy has developed age-specific programs to aid the developing minds, bodies, and emotions of growing children, from six-week-old infants to 12-year-old preteens.
At Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy, we back our programs with over 20 years of research in order to create an optimal system that integrates education, fun, and safety. Like our students, we love to learn! This is why we keep current on the latest research in childhood development and cognitive sciences, and continually integrate the latest findings into our programs.
*Programs and activities may vary by school and may be subject to change without notice. Please contact your local school for additional information on school-specific programs and activities.
6 weeks - 18 months
Our Infant classrooms embody Maria Montessori’s vision of a “Nido” or nest; they are peaceful, loving places where babies can explore and feel secure. Teachers speak in gentle tones, the daily pace is unhurried, and the décor is understated and homelike. Each child in our care is a unique individual to be nurtured with affection and respect. As with all authentic Montessori environments, every detail is selected with the child’s whole development in mind.
18 months - 3 years
Toddlers have brilliant new minds that are ready to start exploring and talking and they require specialized attention and support. Our experienced teachers will introduce your toddler to beautiful art and music and ensure they remain safe and secure as they continue to explore the wide world around them.
