Even our youngest children will be learning how to control their bodies during gross motor play, care for themselves while exploring materials designed to develop their fine motor skills.  Toilet training will also play a role in the child’s day as this is a staple in their growth and development.

Adeline Montessori School’s Middle School Program is based on the philosophy and pedagogy of Maria Montessori’s “Erdkinder,” a German word that roughly translates to “earth children.” Dr. Montessori saw the adolescent as having a great tendency toward self-sufficiency as they undergo the transformation to adulthood. The role of the teacher (or “guide”) is to help students develop independence, self-esteem, identity, and self-regulation through academics. Adeline’s students are actively engaged in their education through observation, critical thinking, practical application, and collaboration. The Middle School program is a microcosmic society where students contribute productively to the classroom, school, community, and global world with integrity and enthusiasm.

The Erdkinder students learn, work, and grow in and out of the Montessori classroom. The diverse and inclusive environment and curriculum are designed to create immersive educational experiences, unlike any other traditional Middle School program. Adeline’s students will divide their time between learning in the classroom and applying knowledge in real-world, hands-on, collaborative immersions. Adeline’s students learn self-discipline through self-expression.

The two-year curriculum cycles and is designed to educate the whole child. Practical considerations for the Erdkinder Program ensure that curriculum standards in Wisconsin are aligned for mastery. Students will experience a variety of rigorous academics with practical application in Language Arts, Literature, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language Study, Physical Education, Visual and Performing Arts, Technology/Engineering, IT & Entrepreneurship, Career Guidance, Mindfulness, and integrated Human Growth and Development.
