Outdoor Play

This time is reserved for free play; a time for children to socialize and to develop their gross motor skills by running, climbing, cycling, and exploring our child-centered playground. Alternatively the outdoor area is a great platform for learning to take turns.


In our Montessori integrated math program manipulations are used to develop mathematical thinking, including counting, number and numerical recognition, and one-to-one correspondence. We use number and geometric patterning activities such as graphing and charting, games, and collections to reinforce number skills. Students develop problem-solving abilities by engaging in real life mathematical situations such as sorting and classifying objects in the classroom.


Awareness and appreciation of science are developed through a focus on hands-on investigations. Students observe, predict, sequence, analyze, and apply knowledge they have learned. Units such as oceans, the solar system, seasons, insects, and sinking or floating are integrated with the teachings of language arts and mathematics.

Language Arts

Students engage in a rich array of language experiences that develop the essential pre-requisites for reading and writing. By incorporating the Montessori method and a phonics program we develop comprehension, visual and auditory differentiation skills; and foster a love for reading.

Social Studies

Students at Sandcastle Park learn about their immediate community, develop a respect for our natural environment, and become contributing members of a diverse classroom community. Children are encouraged to focus on themselves, their families, the school community and neighborhood.

Fine Arts

At Sandcastle Park we use a variety of media such as clay, paint, and collage to allow children to explore and develop an appreciation for artistic expression. Drama and pretend play will also be integrated for the development of imagination and positive self-esteem. Emphasis is placed on exploration and creativity.

What parent say
Our daughter enrolled at Sandcastle Park before she was even two years old. Even though she could barely talk, we could tell that she was happy to be there and that she felt safe and cared for.
