By Cara Hansen

October 25, 2016, West Palm Beach, Florida – To meet the needs of parents, Rosarian Academy has expanded its Early Childhood program offerings to include three-day and four-day program options for children ages 12 months to 4 years old. The growing and popular Montessori pre-school, conveniently located to downtown West Palm Beach, now allows parents to choose three, four or five half days or full days.

Rosarian’s Early Childhood program comprises the Junior Toddler House (up to 24 months), Toddler House (ages 2 to 3 years) and Children’s House (ages 3 to 5 years). 

The program strictly follows the Montessori curriculum. The classrooms provide a caring, individualized, and structured learning environment. The school’s highly trained Montessori-certified teachers lead their students through challenging lessons that develop concentration, independence, and sense of self. Emphasis is placed on developing a love of learning through hands-on Montessori lessons, investigation, and discovery. 

The Children’s House curriculum is enriched with co-curricular classes in physical education, art, music, library, Spanish, and gardening. Extra-curricular offerings include Strings Chamber Orchestra, karate, and dance.

Register for the Open House online at www.rosarian.org/open-house  or call 561-345-3106 to schedule a personal tour.

Rosarian Academy, founded in 1925, educates students from early childhood through eighth grade and offers an exceptionally strong academic program enriched by athletics, visual and performing arts, and community service opportunities. The independent Catholic school is located in downtown West Palm Beach and is sponsored by the Adrian Dominican Sisters. For more information, visit www.rosarian.org or call 561-345-3106.
