Our Programs

Exceptional childcare and early educational programs for children 6 weeks - 12 years old.

Canterbury Schools has developed age-specific programs to aid the developing minds, bodies, and emotions of growing children, from 6-week-old infants to 12-year-old pre-teens. We back our programs with over 20 years of research to create early educational programs that integrate education, fun, and safety.

Infants

2 weeks - 1 year

In our infant classrooms, we employ infant specialists who are CPR certified and have hours of training in sleep safety. Academically, our babies focus on lots of motor and social skills, especially tummy time. Older babies start practicing group play even before moving to our toddler program.

Private Elementary (K-3)

5 - 9 years

Our grade school program moves away from Montessori concepts which were so ideal for early learning, and adopts a “no progression without mastery” policy. Materials are presented to each student in a sequential fashion. Mastery of the current concept must be demonstrated before additional materials can be explored.
