Beginning August 4, 2020, Appleseed Montessori will be offering Distance Learning classes for Toddler and Primary students. Being an American Montessori Society affiliate school, Appleseed’s Distance Learning Program offers to keep the Montessori principles and practices alive. We are establishing a digital platform offering the same program rooted in the teachings of Maria Montessori.

Staying connected with our students is of utmost importance to us as well as providing each one of them with an authentic Montessori experience. Classes will be conducted online and children will be able to “spend time” with their teachers and peers on a regular basis. Large group activities such as Circle Time, Storytelling, Art and the like will be done daily together with one-on-one sessions with children based on their learning pace and progress. It is essential for us to be able to offer our students the attention and time they need to move on from lesson to lesson.

In order to keep things consistent and effective, students who enroll in the Toddler and Primary Distance Learning Programs will receive weekly kits with materials and activities needed. This will also include important information on the weekly goals and lessons to serve as Parent Support.

Since conducting classes a distance away from our students is such a foreign concept to everyone, our goal is to offer a Phase In period for all enrolled students. Phase In will run for one week and this will serve as an opportunity for teachers and children to adjust to the new class format while getting to know each other.

The Toddler Program is for children ages 18 months to 2 years old. The key components of the program are the following:

The Primary Program is for children ages 3-5 years old. The subject areas offered are Reading and Language, Math, Cultural Studies, Practical Life and Sensorial. Music, Grateful Living, Peace Education, Rhymes, Storytelling, Art, Gross Motor activities and Early Childhood Yoga are essential parts of the program as well.

An overview of the class schedule is as follows:
