Brookfield Academy, a Bright Horizons Montessori School

Brookfield Academy: Montessori Curriculum

Montessori Child Care & Education

Children in a Montessori school program develop at their own pace through sequenced learning experiences provided in a carefully prepared classroom environment using specialized learning materials. Under the direction of trained Montessori teachers, purposeful learning activities promote the development of social skills, emotional growth, intellectual curiosity, physical coordination, and cognitive preparation. At Brookfield Academy children develop the skills they need to excel as learners and to succeed in life.

Our Unique Curriculum

The Montessori curriculum at Brookfield Academy incorporates the following unique elements:

Culture

Multicultural studies lay a foundation of mutual understanding by exposing children to geography, history, physical, and life science basics. Children gain an awareness of the world around them by exploring other countries, their customs, foods, languages, and wildlife.

Garden

Lessons in the outdoor environment help children develop an understanding of and appreciation for the complexity and interdependence of our living world. The children develop the skills of exploration, observation, experimentation, and conservation.

Language

Our thoughtfully-planned classroom environment encourages growth in oral language, written expression, reading, and grammar elements. The approach to reading instruction is phonics-based and highly sequential, with additional accommodations adapted to different types of learners.

Math

Using carefully prepared tools and manipulative materials, children are led through a logical mathematical thought process— from concrete to abstract – to understand concepts like linear counting, the decimal system, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Music

Music is incorporated in the classrooms in many ways throughout the day. From transition times to lessons, music and song is infused throughout the day. Montessori bells and other instruments are available for experimentation and formal instruction.

Practical Life

Purposeful activities enhance concentration and focus through caring for the self and the environment, fine motor coordination, and practicing grace and courtesy. These appeal to the child’s need for movement and order, independence, and social relationships.

Sensorial

Montessori materials and hands-on activities stimulate sensory discovery and description, while maximizing the child’s natural desire to explore, classify, and order their surroundings. Children learn concepts of mass, width, length, temperature, and other physical properties.

Spanish

Multicultural studies lay a foundation of mutual understanding by exposing children to geography, history, physical, and life science basics. Children gain an awareness of the world around them by exploring other countries, their customs, foods, languages, and wildlife.

Art

The art area in a Montessori classroom provides developmentally appropriate and open-ended experiences that foster creativity and sensory development.

Leader in Me

The Leader in Me program establishes a whole-child mindset with a belief that every student has the potential to become a leader.
