ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS

MUSIC AND DANCE

Music & Movement is an important part of a child's development. Our curriculum incorporates this through a variety of activities to enhance the love of music, dance and song. Children will learn songs & dances and learn music and instruments from other cultures and countries around the world. They will hear special stories about the lands they came from and sing their songs and understand that MUSIC IS INDEED AN UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE !

COMPUTER

At our state of the art computer center we will teach the fundamentals of computers and introduce your little genius to the world that awaits them in the future. They will play games and learn phonics and sounds while learning the most important tool of their future. It is at Palos Verdes Montessori Academy that they will learn how to use the modern computer that is the working tool of the future.

ARTS AND CRAFTS

Creating art expands a child's ability to interact with the world around them and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication. Not only does art help to develop the right side of the brain, it also cultivates important skills that benefit a child's development. Art is a fundamental component of what makes us uniquely human. Children will be inspired by the colors & textures as they discover, paint and sculpture. The young Leonardo will create unique works of art on murals, mosaics, leaf rubs and sculpt with clay & modeling dough.

LANGUAGES

Children learn languages naturally from the environment. Many studies have demonstrated the benefits of second language learning not only on students’ linguistic abilities but on their cognitive and creative abilities as well. Knowing other languages and understanding other cultures is a 21st Century skill set for American students as they prepare to live and work in a global society. At Palos Verdes Montessori Academy your child will have the ability to learn Spanish and other languages to prepare them for their globally integrated future.

CHILDREN’S YOGA

We offer Children’s Yoga, which is a great form of exercise for children as it benefits all systems of the body. The word ‘Yoga’ means “to unite” and Yoga unites the body & mind to help develop strength & flexibility in muscles, bones, joints, improve balance, coordination, focus and concentration. Children learn about themselves, the natural world and the connection of all life, as many poses are named after animals and other natural elements. Fitness is offered to build strength, coordination and confidence for a healthy life style. It also enables children to handle physical and emotional challenges more effectively.
