Our Program  {Pre-School & Kindergarten}

Effica offers pre-school and kindergarten education Monday through Friday from 8-11am. Our school is a three-year academic program for children ages 2 1/2 - 6 years old. Traditionally, the first two years serve as pre-school, preparing young children with the foundation needed to interact with other children, teachers, and learning materials in a school environment. The third year typically serves as kindergarten, in which children refine certain skills and concepts, and begin to work with more advanced materials. Montessori kindergarten programs are nationally recognized, and upon completion, students are eligible to enter first grade at any private or public school.


The Montessori classroom is divided into areas of practical life, sensorial, language, math, science, geography, art, music, and motor development. Each area is designed to provide a variety of rich learning experiences that cater to the developmental needs of young children. Students develop concentration, coordination, order, and independence through sequenced activities involving step-by-step procedures. Basic concepts are initially introduced in a simple and concrete form, then later explored in more complex and abstract ways through the Montessori Method.


This year marks Miss Asha's 34th year of teaching young children; three years at local schools and

31 years at Effica! Having offered a Morning and Afternoon Session since 1988, she merged both sessions into one exclusive class session starting in 2015. This allows Miss Asha to offer personalized instruction to each student in this focused group, and reserves some time and energy to pursue other interests such as reading, being in nature, enjoying her pets, herb gardening, and travel!
