Oakhaven Montessori School offers an alternative to traditional education for children ages two-and-a-half to second grade. According to the school's website, the school mission is to "celebrate the individuality of each child while fostering interdependence with all of life. While adhering to the teachings of Maria Montessori, we create choices, open doors and provide a life education." The school's classrooms and materials are designed to meet the Association of Montessori Education criteria. The Primary School is for children ages two to six and focuses on a curriculum of practical life, sensorial, language and math skills. Primary students can attend half days from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., two or three days from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. or full days from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Extended care is available in the morning beginning at 7:30 a.m. and after school until 5:30 p.m. The elementary school students in kindergarten through second grade work independently in a classroom of mixed ages. The children work under the direction of the teacher but there is no grading scale, tests or homework. Montessori students are encouraged to self-correct and help each other.
