Apple Montessori is celebrating its 40th anniversary! There are several things that make Apple Montessori unique. First, we have materials that teach a particular skill through active, hands-on involvement. Children learn easier and faster from birth to 6 years old than at any other time in their life. Second, our school allows each child to learn at their own pace while developing strong confidence and self-esteem.

Apple Montessori offers a unique reading program, computer enrichment, art, music, and Fastrack programs. Our primary reputation comes from the ability to motivate young children to love learning! We also have an action packed summer camp program. The campers participate in activities such as swimming lessons every day, arts and crafts, nature and science, cooking, music and dance, computers, organized sports, and field trips. For more information, please call or visit our website.

Apple Montessori Schools held a Parent Math Seminar at their Elementary school in Wayne. The Seminar was a great way for parents to see and learn about the fabulous hands on math curriculum which is offered at all Apple Montessori schools. All parents who attended were able to work with the Montessori Math materials which deal with teaching children the shape, space, numbers, and their relationships and attributes by the use of numbers and symbols. Their curriculum studies the science of pattern and includes hands on math manipulatives which help to teach; Patterns of all kinds, such as numerical patterns, abstract patterns, patterns of shape, motion and so much more. Parents were given an in depth training on their advanced math curriculum. Apple Montessori set up tables, with every hands on material that lines their classroom's shelves. Some of the materials represented covered subjects such as whole numbers, fractions, and positive numbers.

At Apple Montessori Schools the Directress is responsible for preparing the environment and the child’s experiences in it. It is important to provide the indirect preparation of experience with numbers before it is studied. The Math materials must be carefully presented as the child is ready. Every material is self corrective and builds skills which lead up to the next level material. Apple Montessori's hands on math materials have an emphasis on the fact that young children take great pleasure in all number work. When the child is ready, the absorption of math concepts through Apple's math materials and carefully prepared curriculum, is easy and natural.

The parents who attended Apple's Math Parent Seminar were able to see that the materials are empowering and bring the children to a level of confidence and joy of learning Mathematics. All parents had a chance to experience and work with the hands on math materials that their children work with on a daily basis in all Apple Montessori classrooms. The seminar was a great success and is only one of many parent seminars held each year by Apple Montessori Schools. These events are meant to support and inform parents. The next parent seminar will be held this spring at every Apple location. As part of their Art enrichment curriculum Apple invites all parents to participate in their annual Art Festival.

The parents are invited to come in and work alongside their children to recreate projects that were done in the classroom throughout the year. It is just one of the many ways that they strengthen that vital parent, child and school connection. Apple Montessori School children are provided many opportunities throughout the school year to show their talents to their parents! All parents should look forward to musical presentations at events like their annual international shows, Mother's Day Tea and Father's Day ice cream socials to name only a few. They are definitely a school that not only "Lays the foundation for a lifetime of school success,” but they also empower parents to be a part of that process.
