Zoltan Kodály, a Hungarian composer and educator created an ingenious teaching method nearly 100 years ago that emphasized collaboration, expressiveness, creativity, and other skills. Kodály’s method flourished and is today one of the preferred ways to expose young children to musical concepts.
Kodály believed that music should be taught in a logical and sequential manner; there should be pleasure in learning music; learning should not be torturous; and the voice is the most accessible, universal instrument.
The Suzuki method is a music curriculum and teaching philosophy dating from the mid-20th century, created by Japanese violinist and pedagogue, Shinichi Suzuki. The method claims to create an environment for learning music that parallels the linguistic environment of acquiring a native language.
Power of Two Montessori offers an enriching Spanish curriculum developed by a Montessori teacher. The children have presentations on colors, transportation, food, time, and nature. Our Spanish teachers make learning the language fun and engaging for children.
Art provides children with a solid foundation for future growth by exploring, creating, expressing, and developing their self.
We provide a rich art area in the classroom, and give children a chance to choose their medium: paints, pastels, clay, pencils, and crayons.
We understand that Maria Montessori didn't believe that you could “teach” a child to become an artist. However, she was a strong believer in nurturing children's creative abilities and teaching them to develop a creative eye.
As part of our regular class offering, all children will enjoy a Power of Two Montessori specialty chess unit, developed by our owner/founder. Children who are interested and who have mastered the chess unit in the classroom will have an opportunity to take private lessons with a specialist once a week.
Yoga helps children develop better body awareness, self-control, flexibility, and coordination. Playful poses such as Cat, Flower, and Airplane, as well as partner poses that can be performed with friends, teach children the basics. With the help of “flashcards,” children develop mental focus, balance, and strength, to form a love of yoga.
At Power of Two Montessori, we believe physical education should be a part of everyday life, in order to develop a healthy body and mind. Positive encouragement, teamwork, good sportsmanship and physical exercise are all keys to developing both self-respect and respect for others.
