The Authentic Montessori Curriculum at Country Montessori School of Poway offers a whole approach to education that impacts a child’s learning throughout their life. This is a result of the Montessori curriculum, which brings together the development of each child intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually.
In addition to the traditional Montessori academic curriculum, each and every Country Montessori School of Poway student experiences enrichment classes and after-school programs to expand their learning experience and to foster lifelong learning.
Our enrichment programs for Early Childhood students include Spanish, music and physical education. At the Elementary level those courses continue and art and computer classes are also added. All students are challenged and enriched with engineering and technology which are incorporated into the Montessori curriculum and expanded upon in the elementary levels.
The before- and after-school care program for our students provides our families with opportunities outside of regular school hours for learning, socialization and student care. Students can experience a variety of after-school classes as well such as art, yoga, rescue rangers (learning about animals in need), composting, and science.
Country Montessori School of Poway provides programs for Early Childhood (ages 2.5-6) Lower Elementary (ages 6-9), Upper Elementary (ages 9-12) for the San Diego area and beyond.
Our lead classroom teachers are Montessori credentialed for the programs they teach. Some of our teacher Assistants are in training and completing their practicum under the guidance of an experienced teacher. All elementary lead teachers must have a minimum college education of a bachelor’s degree.
