A Multi-sensory Approach to Literacy
A quick count in the Primary classroom reveals over 40+ materials on the language shelf that children can choose to build their reading and writing skills. Each material uses the power of hands-on learning to help our children as they grow into life-long readers.
A Natural Experience for Our Urban School
Our children spend 200+ hours at school during the school year because we know that exploring the world and deeply learning requires all the senses. Personal, emotional experiences with nature inform children in a long-lasting way and inspire classroom study. Free play outdoors helps children focus in the classroom, and nature calms the human spirit.
A Peaceful World Starts with Each Child
At Humboldt Park Montessori, we provide experiences beyond just academics to support the growth of the whole child, especially their social and emotional development. Practices like mindfulness and negotiating conflicts are part and parcel to the work of building our school community and are incorporated daily in the classroom.
