At Great Work Montessori School, we are dedicated to providing an exceptional learning experience for children in Granite City and its surrounding areas. Our commitment to quality education, combined with the Montessori philosophy, ensures that each child receives a well-rounded education that nurtures their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development.
Our program at Great Work Montessori School is designed to foster a love of learning in each child. We offer a comprehensive curriculum that caters to the individual needs and interests of every student. Our experienced and dedicated teachers create a nurturing environment that encourages exploration, independence, and critical thinking.
Central to our program is the Montessori philosophy, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. This approach prioritizes the child's natural curiosity and innate desire to learn. Through hands-on materials and self-directed activities, our students develop a strong foundation in various subjects while cultivating important life skills such as concentration, problem-solving, and respect for others.
One of the key benefits of our program is the emphasis on individualized instruction. We recognize that each child learns at their own pace and has unique strengths and areas for growth. Our teachers assess and observe each student's progress closely, adjusting their lesson plans to ensure optimal learning and growth in all areas.
Our curriculum at Great Work Montessori School covers a wide range of subjects and areas of development. We provide a holistic education that includes:
Language and Literacy
In our language and literacy curriculum, children engage in activities that promote reading, writing, and effective communication skills. Through phonics, word recognition, and vocabulary development, students develop a strong foundation in language arts.
Mathematics is a fundamental component of our curriculum. Using Montessori materials and hands-on activities, students explore mathematical concepts, including numeracy, operations, geometry, and problem-solving. Through these activities, students develop critical thinking and logical reasoning skills.
Science and Nature
Our science curriculum allows children to explore the wonders of the natural world. Through hands-on experiments, observation, and inquiry-based learning, students develop a scientific mindset and curiosity about the world around them. They learn to appreciate the environment and the importance of sustainability.
Through social studies, students learn about diverse cultures, history, geography, and the social structures that shape our world. They develop an understanding of global citizenship, empathy, and respect for cultural diversity.
Our school is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities that support a conducive learning environment for children. We have spacious and well-lit classrooms, equipped with Montessori materials and educational resources. Our outdoor playground provides ample space for physical activities and social interaction.
