Belmont’s Areas of Expertise

Belmont Weekday School is not a daycare. While we definitely care for your children, we are focused on intentional instruction following a play based curriculum. In an age appropriate way, we work to get the most out your child along the way to each developmental milestone. Children that graduate are thoroughly prepared for Kindergarten in both skill and social development.

While the curriculum provides structure and a way to measure development, it also provides the flexibility to attend to each individual child’s needs. We know that different children have different needs and connecting to learning in different ways. The way our curriculum is implemented depends on the age group and the individual teacher group, but our focus is to fully engage a child with play, reading, art, story telling, language, physical activity and music.

All students in the 4 and 5 year old classes get to take French as part of the preschool enrichment curriculum. This is included with the student’s tuition. Twice a week Madame Rita Richardson comes to Belmont Weekday School to teach the children about the French language and culture. Through songs and age appropriate games Madame Rita helps the children begin to learn a foreign language. Early exposure to a foreign language can help a child be more adept at learning new languages in the future. It is also the time in their lives they learn language skills most easily.
