The Three Year Cycle
Lake Hills Montessori provides the full benefit of the Montessori Method. Our philosophy is a whole-child approach which ignites the spirit of the child through academics, grace and courtesy, and learning how to make peace. In order to do this, each student must complete at least the three-year cycle which ends after their Kindergarten year.
Lake Hills Montessori Tulsa provides a Montessori education for children from Pre School to Kindergarten (18-months to 6). Our Pre-Primary program is for children 18 months to 3 years of age. In this environment, they will start to build a foundation of knowledge that will help them obtain independence and care of self. This language-rich classroom provides an opportunity to begin their love of learning and where they will discover their many interests and strengths.
The Primary program starts at approximately 3 years and is where your child will continue their Montessori education of understanding moving from concrete to abstract concepts. Using all five senses to learn is emphasized in Montessori through listening, reading, touching, tasting and smelling.
Teachers develop individualized lesson plans for each child along with anecdotal notes so children learn at their own individual pace, according to their choice of activities. Learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning.
Each year is an important year for your child. From the first year when they’re beginning to learn focus and concentration through the third year when they feel confident, secure and independent, the staff at Lake Hills Montessori is committed to providing your child with a stimulating successful learning environment ending in their Kindergarten leadership year.
