Crabapple Creek is a Montessori-based preschool program.  This philosophy was developed in Italy in the early 1900’s by Dr. Maria Montessori.  The classroom is set up as a prepared environment with beautiful and well-made wooden materials that allow the children to teach themselves.  The teacher serves as a director who guides the children to find work that is challenging for them, observes their progress, and keeps records of work that has been presented and work that has been mastered.  The program follows a carefully designed plan to help the children learn about the world through activities that are interesting and fun.  The Montessori philosophy allows children to make many decisions on their own, and they can learn at their own pace in the way that works best for them.
