A Montessori Curriculum
Scope and Sequence
This curriculum guide is a simplified version of a comprehensive
set of five curriculum guides developed by Tim Seldin, president
of the Montessori Foundation. They were developed with an
eye to national standards and curricular trends in the United
States, with the goal of ensuring that all necessary skills
and knowledge are covered by the practicing Montessori educator.
Our school integrates the Florida Sunshine State
Standards into the Montessori curriculum.
The following pages provide a brief overview of The Montessori
core curriculum in the areas of language arts, mathematics,
social studies, science, sensory training, and practical life
for students age 3 through the Upper Elementary level. Please
keep in mind that this only represents an overview of the
course of study, and is not meant to be complete. The Arts,
Music and Physical Education also play an important part in
the Montessori curriculum, and are interwoven throughout.
