About Mighty Oaks Montessori
A typical day at Mighty Oaks:
8:15-8:30 – Student arrival window.
8:30-11:30 – Montessori 3-Hour Work Period. During this time, children receive individual and small group lessons from a wide variety of rich curricular subject areas and have free choice to practice the lessons that they have received already. All students will receive lessons in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, Culture/Geography, and science.
11:30-12:00 – Outdoor Recess and Farmstead Jobs. Children either play freely in our fully fenced playscape or work on the variety of chores which are necessary for our mini farm to function. These activities provide the children with meaningful connections about how to live in harmony with nature. Tasks include planting, watering, and harvesting organic produce from our gardens, maintaining/turning compost, collecting eggs from the hen house, feeding the chickens, and observing or harvesting from our apiary (full beekeeping suits provided).
