Little Barn Curriculum

A Montessori approach with an emphasis in outdoor education

Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for kindergarten by focusing on hands-on engagement in alignment with Montana's early learning standards.  Students will be introduced to the basics of numbers, the alphabet, color recognition, emotional intelligence, space and geography.  Our school also fosters independence and responsibility by guiding students to grow plants and care for the animals that live on property.
