The Primary Environment
3 years - 6 years old
At Beverly Hills Academy, we prioritize the foundation of learning in our Montessori classrooms, where three to six-year-olds engage in Practical Life activities to refine their senses and develop social skills. Our comprehensive educational program offers whole group, small group, and individual lessons, including Arabic, Islamic Studies, Gym, and Music. With dedicated teachers, we foster independence, allowing students to progress at their own pace. Our approach emphasizes the development of fine motor skills, concentration, and a well-rounded education.
To ensure a nurturing learning environment, we maintain a low student-to-teacher ratio with two staff members per classroom. This allows us to provide individualized attention and guidance, ensuring that each student receives the support they need. Through our structured daily schedule, students learn the value of routine and develop a sense of responsibility and discipline. They gain enhanced confidence as they complete their work and engage in appropriate social interactions with their peers, fostering a supportive community.
Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of each student, and we encourage them to work at their individual levels with guidance from their teachers. Students have the freedom to choose their work within certain limits, promoting autonomy and instilling a sense of ownership in their education. We foster curiosity and provide opportunities for students to explore their interests, encouraging them to ask questions and seek knowledge actively.
In addition to academic growth, we prioritize the development of social-emotional skills. Our students learn to navigate their emotions, communicate effectively, and collaborate with others. We believe in nurturing their leader ship potential and provide opportunities for them to develop leadership skills, preparing them for the challenges they may face in elementary education. Throughout their time with us, students also develop strong observational skills, honing their ability to analyze and understand the world around them.
