The Montessori Academy of Early Enrichment’s mission is to provide a quality learning experience that is suited to the needs of the child. We believe that all children are unique individuals with different needs, interests, and abilities.

Practical Life includes those activities performed in everyday life to maintain the surrounding environment and the person. The purpose of Practical Life
exercises is to help the child to become independent, self sufficient, to achieve order, and to learn to follow action sequences designed to provoke concentration. Practical Life exercises cover four (4) activities:
- Care of the environment
- Development of social relations
- Care of self
- Coordination of physical movement
The purpose of Sensorial exercises is to help the child develop the five (5) senses. This is achieved by exposing the child to Sensorial material during the sensitive periods through which the child goes. The Sensorial exercises enable the child to discriminate order, classify, and describe sensory impressions with relation to length, width, temperature, mass, color, pitch, and smell.
Maria Montessori viewed mathematics as a natural process that begins at the concrete level and progresses to the abstract. Montessori mathematics materials include the Spindle Box, Red and Blue Rods, Sand paper number, Golden Beads, etc.
Montessori Language materials help the child learn to read, write and develop an awareness of the meaning of words. Students begin early in Montessori to identify the sounds of words.
The Sciences - Geography
Children in the Pre-K class are taught about geography, and peace. The hallmark of Montessori Education is the use of Hands-On materials, which clearly define abstract topics such as multiplication, geometry, algebra, and language skills.
The Montessori Academy of Early Enrichment has an elementary program which not only covers all the

Beach County Literacy Roll-out.
