A Message From the Principal:
We will happily welcome the April showers as we say good bye to the snowy winter season!
The month of April brings with it several exciting events at Montessori Corner School. First we look forward to the beautiful, much warmer weather as our students are so eager to go outdoors. Our spacious playground awaits them all!
Another exciting time for the children is Spring Break which will occur April 6-10. Some of our friends will go on vacation and other friends will attend our Spring Gap Camp. Our Montessori teachers are here that week providing fun spring activities, outdoor fun, and continued Montessori learning for those parents who need coverage that week. We will have after school available until 5:00 p.m. We still have availability. Simply call 609-799-6668 for the details and pricing.
On April 20-24 our Kindergarten friends will take the Stanford 10 standardized tests. Since January, our students have attended Testing Techniques workshops which will assist them with strategies for choosing the correct answer, filling in the bubbles, and more. This workshop also helps to develop focus and concentration skills. Our students always perform in the above average percentile!
Spring Picture Day is coming – All of our students will be photographed on April 28th by Lifetouch Photographers. Our Kindergarten graduates will also have their cap and gown photos as well. As we look toward Graduation Day on June 10, and preparations begin soon, it makes us realize just how fast the school year is going. Our Montessori Summer Camp begins the Monday after the last day of school and will continue for 11 weeks of summer! We offer flexible half or full day programs with after school if needed! Call us for more information or a brochure.
Enrollments continue and we have been providing more private tours than usual. Parents are ready to bring their children out in this beautiful weather to start at our Montessori Corner school – whether it is their first experience in Early Childhood (2-3 year olds) or our Primary level (3-6 yr olds), it will be a memorable and exciting one for them! Call today for a tour! We would love to meet you and your child and get them started on a wonderful and fun educational journey at Montessori Corner!

Children staying for lunch should bring food and drink that are nutritious. Planning ahead with your young child to prepare the lunch together can be a wonderful activity to share. Older children can be expected to take on this responsibility. Because we don’t heat lunch, you may send warm lunches in an insulated container. Please do not send soda or candy. With respect to our environment, all food should be packed in recyclable containers and drinks in thermoses or reusable containers (no juice boxes, “lunchables,” or tube yogurt). We will encourage your child to finish what you send with them and return anything uneaten at the end of the day. The children will not be sharing their lunches.
Snack time is an integral part of our Practical Life curriculum. It is a learning experience that teaches grace and courtesy. Parents are encouraged to participate in this process by bringing healthy snacks or food, which we will use in that day’s lesson. This would include fresh fruit, vegetables, popcorn, eggs, crackers, etc. Sign-up sheets are available in each classroom at the beginning of the school year.
Nuts and Peanut Butter
Due to the severity of some children’s allergic reaction to peanut butter, we request the parents’ cooperation in creating a “peanut butter and nut free” environment.
