Haven MontessoriCharter School
Haven Montessori Charter School includes our Kindergarten (part of the Primary classroom), Lower Elementary, 1st – 3rd grade and Upper Elementary, 4th – 6th grade.
When the children reach elementary age, their psychological characteristics change. They become more social beings, they are interested in justice and moral values, developing their sense of right and wrong, and they experience great mental growth. Maria Montessori calls this the second plane of development. The child changes from a concrete, absorbent, sensorial learner to a child with a reasoning mind and a child who can abstract. We make use of these changes by opening up our curriculum with great lessons that build a framework of knowledge. The children hear stories about the creation of our earth, the evolution of life from the beginning of time, the coming of man, the emergence of writing, geometry, numbers and math. Subjects are not taught in isolation, but encompass key lessons within a multidisciplinary framework. We foster gratitude for life, encourage independence and help students find their place in this world. We have two lower elementary classes (first through third grade) with a maximum enrollment of 25, with one Montessori trained teacher and one assistant in each class. We have one upper elementary class (fourth through sixth grade) with a maximum enrollment of 25, with one Montessori trained teacher and an assistant. Special Education services are provided as needed by our licensed Special Education team.
How To Enroll your Child in Haven Montessori Charter School
We have completed our lottery for Kindergarten for the 2020/21 school year, and the class is now full. If you would like to be added to our waiting list for Kindergarten, please click here.
We will hold our next virtual open house in September 2021. Please check back in August for more information.
The registration process for the charter school operates according to the contract between the state and the charter school, according to A.R.S. paragraph 15-184 (A). Enrollment preference is only given where the law allows (ie, siblings of currently enrolled Charter students). Enrollment in the private preschool does not give children preference for Kindergarten enrollment.
