University Heights Montessori (UHM) is a year around state-licensed Montessori preschool serving children from the ages of 2 to 6 years. UHM has been in existence since 1989 and we have a well-established and great reputation in the community for educating children in the Menlo Park area. We provide a flexible program for parents who want their children to participate in a preschool/kindergarten experience with a full day option. Our PHILOSOPHY is to give children a "love for school" attitude by building their self-esteem through a program guided by a Montessori education that includes:

 

  • A prepared environment developing cognitive learning through hands-on-activities
  • A child oriented environment giving children choices and the ability to execute them
  • The ability to master basic skills, develop a true sense of the community and respect for each other

 

Our PROGRAM is designed around a different theme each month. The mornings begin with a large group circle time where new work of the day is introduced. This is followed by the "work time" where students select materials of their own choice off the shelves where the materials range from basic to more challenging. These materials are appropriate for their own developmental level. The lesson plans follow a yearly curriculum enriched by geography, science, math, language, sensorial, practical life and art, music, foreign language and a gross-motor development program. The work time is followed by a group time where students participate in singing and learning Spanish. A 45 minute recess outside follows. The morning ends with lunch followed by story time and an AM dismissal. Nappers then go down for their naps and the PM schedule follows the same format as the AM program with different enriching activities.

 

 

MONTESSORI TWO'S PROGRAM

University Heights Montessori [UHM] is excited to offer a Montessori Two's program for children between the ages of 2.0 to 2.11 years.

 

The classroom has a maximum of 13 students with two Montessori teachers and one assistant teacher. Parents have the choice of either a 3 days a week program or 5 days a week program.

 

The classroom is set up as a Montessori classroom with age appropriate materials consisting of challenging jobs for students at all learning levels in the areas of Montessori which includes: practical life, language, math, sensorial, science, culture and geography. Music, art and creative play will also be a part of the curriculum and day to day activities. The students will experience hands-on-activities in all of the areas  mentioned above while also allowing for circle time and recess every day.

 

Our Montessori Two's program is designed to help our students build their self-esteem, independence, fine and gross motor skills, language development and early math concepts, all of which will prepare them for the next step in our Montessori pre-school.

 

The students will grow and learn together throughout the school year giving them a sense of continuity, and security while learning social graces with their friends and teachers all in a warm nurturing environment.

 

The basic idea in the Montessori philosophy of education is that all children carry unseen within themselves the person they will become. In order to develop their unique physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual powers to the fullest, they must have freedom; a freedom achieved through order and self-discipline.
