About Victory Montessori & Childcare Center
Victory Montessori & Childcare Center is a ministry of Victory Church, serving the community by caring for and teaching children 6 weeks through Kindergarten. We offer a year round traditional program for infants and toddlers and a Montessori program for children ages 3 (and potty trained) through Kindergarten which runs according to the Jefferson County school calendar. We are licensed by the Department of Social Services and have been operational since 1990.
Our infant staff provides a nurturing environment to meet the emotional, physical and spiritual development of the children. When the child is one year old and walking, eating table food and showing signs of toddler behavior they will be transitioned to the toddler room. Infants are on an “on demand” schedule concerning eating and sleeping needs. All food, bottles and formula are provided by the parents.
We offer full time care in four toddler rooms which are separated by age groups. The toddler curriculum consists of age appropriate child development activities in the areas of sensory, fine motor and gross motor. Because the children are approaching a stage of autonomy, many activities are planned to enhance individuality and independence. Much care, consideration and concern is given to the children during this developmental stage.
Our two year old rooms are where children will begin potty training here at school. These classrooms are also designed to transition our toddlers into a Montessori atmosphere. Montessori concepts are introduced and the children in this class begin to choose their own activities. The children learn to sit in a group and not become distracted. They will participate in learning colors, shapes and returning work to its proper place. Practical life and other fine motor skills will be introduced (spooning & pouring). This is a great introduction to our Montessori program and allows your child to be prepared for their next stage of development.
Our Montessori classroom is a small multi-age classroom for up to 20 children, ages 3 years (potty trained) through Kindergarten. Our mornings start with the children in group time where we sing songs, listen to music and read stories. The current subjects of study are also discussed during this time, and new activities are presented. During work period, the children are free to choose a wide variety of activities such as:
Practical life: fine motor skills-eye/hand coordination through pouring and spooning
Art: projects and spontaneous
Math: using concrete materials
Language: preparation for reading and writing
Science: units of study
Music: instruments and singing
Geography: units of study
Sensorial: to refine the senses
Manipulatives: puzzles and blocks
After lunch, the 5 year olds gather for our Montessori Kindergarten Program while the younger children nap from 12:00-1:30PM. This time includes more advanced writing skills, detailed unit studies, advanced math, and advanced reading skills. At 1:30PM another work period begins for all of the children until the Montessori program ends at 3:00PM.
TEACHERS & STAFF
The head teachers in all of our classrooms are certified by the state of Colorado. All teachers are Infant/Child CPR certified, first aid certified, and required to take a standard precautions class annually. They also participate in additional Early Childhood Education trainings. Our goal is to provide a safe Christian environment that will meet the needs of your children and challenge them spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. Each classroom has a strong early childhood basis and is developmentally appropriate for the age levels we serve.
Victory has been such a blessing for my boys and our family. Like any parent, it is awful having to be away from your children several days per week, but the wonderful teachers and staff at Victory have been so kind, friendly and good to my boys. I have become friends with many of the teachers and have really enjoyed getting to know them. They work hard and really try to accommodate as much as they can. I feel good knowing that when I can’t be with my kids they are in good hands having a good day that is educational, fun, and safe. I always recommend them whenever asked.
