Bay Montessori is pleased to offer Spanish as part of the school curriculum for all students.
PE is offered as a means of group cooperation, gross/physical motor development and individual expression for Kindergarten and Elementary.
Art is incorporated into the curriculum for the pre-primary and primary classes to allow for creative expression throughout the day. The Elementary have a weekly art class utilizing a variety of mediums and encouraging different ways of expressing their individual creativity.
Each class participates in a music program each week. Children will sing, move to music and be exposed to music from around the world.
Bay Montessori opens the pool for use during the late spring, summer, and early fall seasons. Children will need a swimsuit, towel, and sunscreen (if preferred).
The educational program at Bay Montessori may be expanded by participation in purposeful, informative field trips. All field trips are organized by the teacher and are supervised by at least the regular ratio of students to staff. Parents are often requested to accompany the class to provide additional supervision, depending on the type of field trip. If a parent volunteers to help, that parent must be prepared to assume the responsibility of supervising a number of children just as if he or she were another staff member. Field trips will be scheduled as far in advance as possible and notices will be sent home. We generally use the school van for field trips but often family vehicles may be used. Maryland’s current law (effective June 30, 2008) requires children under eight years old to ride in an appropriate child restraint car seat or booster seat, unless the child is 4’9” or taller or weighs more than 65 pounds. Every child from 8 to 16 years old who is not secured in a child restraint must be secured in the vehicle’s seat belt.
Computer education is integrated into the Elementary and Middle School curriculum.
The Elementary and Middle School classes participate in theatre production throughout the spring as they prepare for a play in May.
The Two-Year Old and Primary classes visit the Library each week to check out several books and participate in story-time.
