Why a Five Day Montessori Program is Essential for Your Child

Consistency, order, and empowerment form the bedrock of the Montessori method.

It's designed to create a culture where children can thrive.

Most authentic Montessori schools, including those in Poway and the surrounding San Diego communities, emphasize a five-day program.

This approach isn't arbitrary; it's rooted in a deep understanding of child development.

Consistency is Key

Elementary schools, both public and private, operate on a five-day schedule. While preschools often offer varied schedules, MCDC's Primary Program, serving children ages 1.5 to 6, firmly believes in the five-day approach. This consistency allows children to immerse themselves in their chosen activities, fostering a genuine love for learning.

The Adult Perspective

Consider starting a new project. The initial excitement drives you, but interruptions can dampen enthusiasm. For children, this effect is magnified. Consistency in their learning environment helps maintain their interest and enthusiasm. It's akin to letting them play at their favorite San Diego park every day, rather than just once in a while.

Maximizing Opportunities

A Montessori classroom is a treasure trove of activities. With a limited schedule, children might miss out on these learning opportunities. A five-day program ensures they get the most out of their Montessori experience, from academic growth to developing leadership skills.
