Our Curriculum

Fine Arts

  • How can we convey meaning to others through the arts?
  • Through what artistic means can we express ourselves?
  • How can the arts help us get to know ourselves better?

Children can explore music, movement, dance and drama throughout the school year. This may include introduction to different artistic media, for example: charcoal, collage, oil pastels, watercolor, clay, etc., dancing to different rhythms and tempos, or acting out scenarios during dramatic play. Stress-relieving yoga and breathing are modeled and practiced. Gross and fine motor skills and physical and spatial awareness are honed in on through this type of play.

The Curriculum at Fishtown Montessori School

Traditional Montessori Curriculum includes practical life, sensorial, language, math, and culture (history, science, geography, art, and cultural studies). The curriculum at Fishtown Montessori School addresses all of the main areas of a Montessori classroom and takes it a step further by adding additional child-centered and child-led curricula intended to address needs specific to the 21st century.
