Preschool at Recker
San Tan Montessori is founded on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. The materials facilitate learning in a hierarchy from simple to complex and concrete to abstract. Teachers and assistants in each classroom carefully and beautifully orchestrate student’s optimal achievement through independent, large and small group learning opportunities.
San Tan Charter School is the home of San Tan Montessori, a Private Montessori Preschool offering a uniquely special Preschool experience. Our program begins as early as 12-months (if they can walk stably), within our Toddler program, and can run through the 4th grade, within our Montessori Elementary classrooms. Students can also transition into our mainstream elementary or gifted elementary programs depending on which program best fits the needs of the student and family.
The four main areas of focus within a Montessori classroom are:
- Practical Life
- Language Arts
The Montessori classrooms are made up of:
- A Teacher and Assistant
- Multi-Age Students
- Prepared Environments
- Freedom Within Limits
The Montessori curriculum offers wide-ranging lessons that inspire a love and excitement for learning and encourages independent exploration. Cultural Studies are taught with Science and Social Studies as interdisciplinary subjects. Earth science, physical science, astronomy, geography, biology, and history are intricately interwoven. Music and Art activities are incorporated regularly into the curriculum.
