Eastlake Montessori Preschool is a small, cozy traditional Montessori preschool in Thornton for children ages 2 1/2 through 7 where children are encouraged to learn and thrive at their own pace. A love of learning is enhanced and strengthened.
Our school was started in 1981. The same staff has been with the preschool for a number of years. This provides a safe, stable and nurturing learning environment for the children. Most of our children come from the cities of Thornton, Northglenn, Broomfield, Westminster and Brighton.
We have a morning class that meets from 8:30 to 11:30. Children can attend four or five mornings per week. Our afternoon class meets from 12:30 to 3:30. Children can attend three, four or five afternoons per week. We have an extended day program as well that allows children to attend from 8:30 to 3:30. Children can attend the extended day program three, four or five days per week. Before school care and after school care allows children to come as early as 8 o’clock and to stay as long as 5 PM.
Our summer program meets on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays in June and July. Children can attend either in the morning, afternoon or extended day.
Our daily schedule for both morning and afternoon sessions starts with play time outside as long as the weather permits followed by a short group time where the children are encouraged to share things from home and how they are feeling. The short group time is followed by a two hour work period where the children are given individual and small group lessons and they practice lessons they have already been given. The work period is followed by a group time where a teacher leads the children in finger plays, songs, and large motor activities. Often times a story is read during that time. The last half hour is spent on the playground if the weather permits or with toys or activity games when the weather is too cold or wet.
We encourage you to call our school to arrange an observation or e-mail us. We are eager for you to become part of our school family.
