Top Hat Montessori

Top Hat Montessori

Top Hat Montessori is a school for the 21st Century, providing all day, all year Montessori programs for the children of today’s working families. With a strong commitment to traditional Montessori education, our programs and pricing meet the needs of families with children too young for Elementary school, so you can go to work without worry.

Maria Montessori was a physician in Italy in the early 1900’s. The government was struggling with children being left at home during the day while their parents worked. Dr. Montessori had worked successfully with special needs children, so they asked her to establish a program to care for the children. Through careful observation and experimentation, Dr. Montessori learned what materials and activities engaged the children’s interest, appealing to their instinctive need to learn. Her goals were to meet their developmental needs, and to teach them practical skills, academic fundamentals, respect for others, and care of self and the environment.

New Adventures Learning Community

New Adventures Learning Community

New Adventures Learning Community

People learn best when it is something that interests them. Whether it be cooking, superheroes, history, science, whatever… we build that into our curriculum. While all students are learning the same skills, the way they are learning them is unique to each student.

The New Adventures Learning Community thoughtfully blends the best features of multiple educational traditions to create a student-centered academic approach providing both flexibility and accountability.

▪ Each student creates a personalized curriculum with family input and professional guidance. The student’s curriculum draws from his or her unique interests, passions and goals, and is implemented with the type of one-on-one educational coaching Homeschoolers enjoy.
▪ Students help plan their own daily and weekly schedules, taking charge of their education with professional on-site assistance. Like Montessori students, they learn at their own pace, progressing farther and faster in areas of strength, and taking more time to work through more challenging subject matter.
▪ Children are free to move, eat, and drink when they need to.
▪ There is no unnecessary stress, standardized testing, or required homework, though students may work on projects at home if they choose to.
▪ Students have daily opportunities to collaborate, teach, and learn from each other, and to socialize with peers and develop long-term friendships.

We have created a schedule that enables the students to choose their topics – for short term or long term projects. With a varied range of modalities, they learn the skills necessary for high school completion.

Rochambeau The French International Maternelle School

The French educational system is renowned for its program in early childhood education, the Maternelle. At the age of 2 or 3, in a warm and nurturing environment, children begin to learn and socialize while acquiring the building blocks needed for future academic success in French and in English. The approach is interdisciplinary and project oriented using an overall theme in which the various disciplines such as logical thinking, mathematics, communication, oral and written skills, and relation of the body in space through physical education are brought together in a way that is both stimulating and fun. Children are encouraged to discover and explore in a structured, yet open atmosphere that facilitates and inspires learning at this young age. It all starts in the Maternelle!
