Our Curriculum


  • Why are shapes important?
  • How and why are numbers used?

As early as our toddler program, children are exposed to fundamental math concepts that are introduced in a concrete way. This understanding becomes a foundation of understanding kids bring with them to the primary classroom where concrete examples of math transition into abstract concepts (using numbers as symbols to represent a quantity). The math curriculum includes a variety of materials that encourage an understanding of the foundations of arithmetic, geometry and algebra.

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.
