Educators’ Tips for Families Transitioning to Preschool

As your little one’s mind grows, so does their inclination to grow their world. 

With a student-centric approach, Montessori education enables students and families to transition to greater socialization and a wealth of opportunities to learn and grow at each child’s unique pace. 

Signs Your 3-year-old Is Ready for Montessori Primary

  • Is seeking more exposure to / interest in letters, numbers, learning overall
  • Is more inquisitive and asking more questions
  • Seems bored or is increasingly attention-seeking, disruptive, or even acting out 
  • Is able to engage in self-care/potty-training 
  • Is no longer (or is fighting) napping mid-day

With a wealth of experience and decades of Montessori training, Sea Rose Montessori’s lead teachers are a wonderful resource to families. As a parent-founded school, Sea Rose seeks top teachers to share with families not only Montessori methods, but also options and approaches that have worked well for many families.  

Our wonderful primary (pre-K and Kindergarten teachers) have created options to support young children’s readiness for school success and acclimating to not only the Montessori community but also for a smooth readiness for full-time Kindergarten, as regulated by RI Department of Education (RIDE). 

Particularly for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds students, daily consistency is key, and students look forward to being engaged with their peers, certified teachers, and the carefully prepared Montessori environment. 

Students from age 3+ are welcome to start at 5 full days with dropoff between 8-8:30 am and pickup by 3 p.m. Extended-day runs until 5 p.m.

Please note part-time spots are filled for Fall 2022
