Montessori for Toddler, Preschool, and Transition Kindergarten

Curriculum

Wonderland Montessori of Anaheim is a place where children, ages 2 to 6 years, love to learn by doing, experimenting, touching, using all of their senses. We provide a hands-on classroom with learning materials for all of the main areas: practical living, sensory, math, art, music, language as well as geography, history and science. Even the youngest children learn about their world!
Wonderland Montessori of Anaheim Montessori Learning Spatial Awareness Reasoning

A Montessori curriculum focuses on the below key domains:

  • Freedom of Movement: Absorbing a broad understanding of the world through hands-on materials, the children move about freely, choosing their “work” with responsibility and freedom.
  • Sensorial Activities: This area of learning is scientifically designed to develop, refine, classify and grade the stimulation that children receive through their senses.
  • Mathematics: Learning begins with the child’s use of concrete materials such as numerical rods, sandpaper numerals, counting objects, fraction puzzles and many hands-on math games for number relationship, sorting, matching, the four mathematical “operations,” and place value.
  • Language: These activities are organized in a sequential manner to follow the natural language development of the child.
  • Science: Through our hands-on materials the children learn to match and sort objects and pictures of living/non-living and plant/animal.
  • Geography: The children are introduced to the earth’s globe, the world “they live on,” and learn about land and water forms through floating miniature boats on a miniature lake, gulf, etc.
  • History: This subject is introduced through the concept of time measurement with timing devices for 1 minute, 2 minutes, to 1 hour.
  • Art: Our children gain the skills to express themselves with crayons, watercolors, tempera paint, clay modeling, collage gluing and many other kinds of materials.
  • Music: Music is a natural part of the daily classroom routine in the form of rhythm, instruments, dancing, singing, and finger plays.
  • Physical Education: Since young children are meant to “move” and to practice bodily control with their very active minds, they soon learn to control their large and small muscles.
Wonderland Montessori of Anaheim Montessori Classroom

Dr. Montessori found that young children thrive in a mixed age setting, without competition and comparison to each other. At our school the children are mixed in ages from 2 to 6 years.

Children from the ages of 2 to 6 years of age may enroll at Wonderland Montessori. Maria Montessori’s method of education has been used successfully with “average” children as well as the gifted, the academically challenged, the emotionally disturbed, and the physically handicapped.

Cr W (Yelp Cypress, CA) - This is probably the best Montessori school in Anaheim. Both my children attend the school and we love it. Ms. Elizabeth does a great job managing the school. The staff is wonderful and they are great teachers for the little ones. My oldest starts Kindergarten this summer and he already know how to read and write. I am really happy my kids attend this school, I would give six stars if I can 🙂

Monique D (Yelp Murrieta, CA) - My husband and I did a lot of research on schools in our area and when I walked into Star Bright I automatically had a sense of ease and knew we had found our daughters school.  The equipment, furniture and supplies appear new, clean and well taken care of and the children are happy, excited, BUSY and yet calm.  The school has plenty of natural night, giving it SUCH good vibes.  The teacher is kind, patient, knowledgeable, confident and most importantly, very obviously enjoying her time with the children.  I can literally go on and on about how much I think this school is perfect for my child.  (Oh!  AND they have brought in a professional dance company for the kiddos once a week!).  We are fairly new to Star Bright and already we feel so very pleased with our decision to allow this school to have the honor to begin our daughters path into her education 😉

Jennifer S (Yelp Buena Park, CA) - Our son just began at the Star Bright Montessori School this week.  He has been in a home daycare since he was 3 months old, but we felt he was ready for more of a school setting.  As new parents to taking our son to school we were extremely nervous for him and how well he would adjust to the new environment. I can say, without a doubt, we are so relieved by his excitement to attend the school.  He came home his first day extremely excited about his teachers, classmates and his day in general.  On his 2nd day, he couldn't wait to go back and he continues to look forward to it each day.  The group of teachers and support staff that the school has is incredible.  All of the children seem to get along and play extremely well together and are all very well behaved.  The curriculum and approach that the Montessori school provides has been a very positive experience and we thank the staff for being such a great support for our growing children.

Rachel P (Yelp Anaheim, CA) - My daughter has attended Star Bright for almost 3 years now. She will be leaving soon for kindergarten. I am so thankful for this school. They have development my daughter in a loving and caring environment. The teachers are patient, kind and always available for parents. They push an academic curriculum, they just don't "watch" your child. It will be tough transition for my daughter as she has grown to love her teachers and friends alike. I wish all schools could operate as well as Star Bright does. Thanks you Ms. Kanthi, Ms. Elizabeth, Ms. Jessica and Ms. Jae for all you do!
