Curriculum:

Hudson Montessori School provides programs for children, from ages 2 through 12 years.

The Toddler Program is designed to stimulate the senses of our young children and for them to feel and learn from the many Montessori materials laid out in an orderly, sequential fashion. The classrooms are arranged for our children to be able to explore and discover many new things.

The Bridge Primary program at Hudson Montessori is designed for transitional 3s to prepare them for the order and structure of the Primary program. The Bridge program follows the curriculum of the Primary program, adjusted to the early learning level of the younger three year olds.
The Primary Program at Hudson Montessori serves as the core unit of study in the Montessori Method and is the foundation for all future learning at our school. The Primary Program is a multi-age classroom setting, with students ranging in age from 3 to 5 years old. The classroom is a creative, innovative and constructive environment, which is designed to create a love of learning.

The Elementary program at Hudson Montessori adheres to the core principals of the Montessori philosophy: individualized learning, hands-on Montessori materials and blocks of uninterrupted work time. In addition, we have incorporated elements from modern research-based curriculum to enhance our Montessori Curriculum at HMS.

Our Upper Elementary Program at Hudson Montessori School provides students with opportunities to develop social and leadership skills. Our Upper elementary Curriculum aligns with state standards and integrates Montessori philosophy and experiential learning.

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to create independent thinkers who apply their knowledge to real-life settings and grow into responsible, compassionate citizens of the world.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

At Hudson Montessori School we believe that learning becomes meaningful when it is connected to real life. Integrating knowledge with various experiences provides for improved learning, increased interest and a willingness to try new challenges.

To foster respect, empathy, and care, perseverance, gratitude, and honesty, we provide numerous initiatives to make the learning experience memorable.

Each year the school focuses on a theme that engages our children in having a global perspective. Some prior topics have included the Silk Road, the Olympics, the Americas and Festivals Around the World. As we explore each theme, connections are made to various subject areas such as Language, Math, Social Studies, Science, Art, Technology, and Engineering. Our aim is for students to understand the past, present, and future, and how places and people of the world are connected. We focus their attention by having them look through the lens of our theme.
