FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Authentic Montessori Instruction in a Homeschool Based Environment
Check out a few of our most common questions below from previous students and families. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll get you the information you need.
CAN I SCHEDULE A VISIT?
Yes! We offer prospective family interest meetings every Spring for the upcoming school year.
Depending on the program and families, we may have availability in certain age groups or activities throughout the year. To find out more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT AGES ARE ACCEPTED IN YOUR CO-OP?
Our programs begin in early elementary and go through upper elementary. We do have a study group for teens. For the previous school year, we were divided by ages 6-11 and ages 12-18. Our plan for 2024 is to have 3 days per week dedicated to early elementary through upper elementary. We do not require you to assign your child a specific grade level and parents do not stay during class times. We welcome parent volunteerism and involvement in projects, classroom preparation, class activities, and more.
DO YOU HANDLE EVERYTHING ABOUT HOMESCHOOLING?
No. As with all homeschooling situations, the parents are the ultimate decision makers when it comes to providing a well rounded education for their child. We do not assign grades or require bookwork in a traditional sense until children are out of elementary. We teach small group lessons, monitor your child's progress/work, and determine if the skill has been mastered or not.
Mooresville Montessori does not provide grade specific math lessons. We follow the traditional math and reading lessons associated with Montessori, with topics based on ages 3-6, 6-9, and 9-12 years of age. We do focus on working with hands on materials for children to be successful with math concepts such as large addition, multiplication, division, and pre-algebra. In our 2 day programs, most families choose to supplement with other programs at home with complementary curriculum such as Singapore math or Montessori math. We do offer guidance and recommendations on practicing at home, such as corresponding math workbooks that utilize Montessori images and materials. Others parents choose to allow our program to be the core curriculum for their child in some subjects or all. The choice is up to you.
We will provide more details about this area of our program at our open house, meet and greet, and preview nights. We look forward to meeting you soon!
