Preschool Environment

At Maple Lawn Montessori of Sterling, we believe that preschoolers learn through play. Students engage in fun activities at all time while expanding their minds and exceeding developmental milestones. We are utilizing the nationally renowned Frog Street curriculum, our preschool daily schedule includes activities that facilitate language, STEM, social-emotional and fine/gross motor development.


Preschool Focus

In addition to fostering our students’ budding minds, our teachers also teach preschoolers to care for themselves and others. Students develop a sense of community by learning to kindly and safely navigate relationships with peers and teachers all while understanding that their individuality is valued and celebrated in the classroom.

Science experiment in which polymers balls were used as they are unique of their super absorbency. We teach kids about osmosis . Osmosis is the movement of water through membrane to achieve equilibrium. Osmosis learning is based on observation , unconscious assimilation of ideas, knowledge and technical skills.

Introduction to STEM

Preschoolers learn to express and take care of individual needs to gain independence and confidence, and they learn to communicate with each other and with teachers to express their concerns and ideas in a loving, supportive environment. It is at this level, preschoolers are introduced to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)

Preschool Learning Goals

Where Learning Gets Attention

Play-based learning

Play-based learning

Preschoolers learn best through play, as it engages their imagination, creativity, and problem-solving skills. Providing a variety of open-ended materials and activities, such as blocks, puzzles, dramatic play, and art supplies, allows them to explore and learn at their own pace while fostering their cognitive and social development.

Sensory play especially with jelly encourages children to manipulate materials , building up their fine motor skills and coordination. Sensory play uses all five senses but sense of touch is often the most frequent.

Hands-on experience

Preschoolers benefit from hands-on experiences that involve active participation. Engaging them in science experiments, nature walks, cooking projects, and sensory activities helps them develop a deeper understanding of the world around them. Hands-on learning experiences enhance their critical thinking, observation, and problem-solving abilities.

Story-time, language development for preschoolers

Language Development

Promoting early literacy skills is crucial for preschoolers. Offering a print-rich environment with a variety of books, writing materials, and opportunities for storytelling supports language development. Encouraging conversations, asking open-ended questions, and introducing letter recognition and phonics activities lay the foundation for reading and writing skills.

Outdoor time

Social and Emotional

Preschoolers also need support in their social and emotional development. Teaching empathy, conflict resolution, and cooperation helps them build positive relationships with peers. Creating a supportive and inclusive classroom environment where children feel valued and respected allows them to develop self-confidence and emotional resilience, setting the stage for future academic success.

I’m so grateful that we chose this school to care for our youngest son. In the two and half years we have been attending, my son has grown and learned more than I thought possible. They have loved him like their own, making the transition back to work seamless.

I absolutely love this school! My son has been going there for over a year now and the team at Countryside has always been incredibly attentive, loving, and caring towards him. They post pictures and videos throughout the day which allow me to see all the activities they have him involved in – which includes a lot, story time, arts and crafts, music time, playground activities, etc.

Finding a great quality daycare and starting a new job during a pandemic can be very stressful. However, the frequent updates/ pictures/ videos in the portal put me at ease. This is not your average child care facility. Both of my children are actually learning while still having fun everyday. The staff is amazing and treat you like family. The facility is very clean, secure, and structured for children. I definitely recommend
