Our approach to history begins with the telling of earth’s story from its beginning to the present. Through timelines, students see how people from different cultures and perspectives played a unique role in the development of something we are familiar with today. These timeline lessons are called vertical timelines: they look at the various layers of our past as an archaeologist looks through layers of a dig. Our curriculum includes an emphasis on the study of cultures, both current and historical. A child in our Montessori program will have the opportunity to investigate the people of ancient times as well as modern peoples around the world.
