Our Programs

Transition Room


Boosting your child’s brainpower starts early at Woodpark Montessori. Our infant program is geared towards children ages 6 weeks through 16 months.
Toddler Room


At Woodpark, when children are developmentally ready they move on to our Transition Room! In the transition room they are introduced to many new exciting skills alongside beginning Montessori Education.
Preschool Room


We begin a more structured learning in our Toddler room. We incorporate exciting planned play opportunities for our toddlers as well as continuing their Montessori education from the Transition room!


We teach our preschoolers about the world around them through hands-on participation at their own pace! We believe that preschoolers should be given time to experience education and understand concepts in a way that makes sense to them. The preschool picture that the preview has now can stay the same!


We have a unique and highly valuable Kindergarten program! Our director, Miss Misty, is also our Kindergarten teacher. Over the past 20 years, we have learned so much from each other and she has helped create an amazing program that brings special one-of-a-kind concepts.


Spring Program
Spring Programs
Our Programs are an integral part of our experience here. Two times a year, the children from Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten room practice singing with Ms. Romayne and perform for their family and friends! After the performance, everyone gets to share a bite to eat.
Halloween Party
Halloween Party
Our Halloween party is a wonderful time for everyone each year! Everyone gets to wear their costumes and come with their family and friends to celebrate Halloween time together! There are games, treats and food for all! Most teachers even wear fun costumes, which is always exciting for their students!
Thanksgiving Banquet
Thanksgiving Banquet
Our Thanksgiving banquet is a time when our entire school comes together for a meal, just like the Pilgrims they learn about! The children dress as Pilgrims and Indians and invite their loved ones to have the meal with them! The food is always yummy, and the children have a great time experiencing what they have learned about.
Christmas Program
Christmas Party
At the Christmas party, the children get to perform songs for their families and friends just like they do for the spring program! Santa comes with a gift for everyone and Woodpark celebrates their own unique Christmas for all!
Summer Fun
Summer time is one of our busiest times here at Woodpark! We get the chance to play outdoors and go on many different field trips to the community around us. Everybody loves spending time outside and soaking up the sun in our hot summer months!
Fourth of July Parade
Fourth Of July Parade
During our Fourth of July Parades all of our students dress up in Red. White and Blue! Each classroom makes their own hats and flags and we walk to the sidewalk on the side of our school. We wave to all the cars and get a lot of cars to honk their cars.
Valentine’s Day Party
For Valentine’s Day, each classroom participates by making boxes and sharing Valentine’s Day treats with their friends in their classroom! They get to have a sweet treat and talk about how much we care for those around us!
Valentine's Day Party
End Of The Year Picnic
End of the Year Picnic
Our End of the Year Picnic is always an exciting time at our school! With the weather warming up, we take the opportunity to walk to our local park with our families and have a picnic together! Many of the children say goodbye to their teachers and friends for the summer, while others celebrate taking on a new chapter with the summertime months at our school.

Montessori Work

Montessori work is a unique and crucial part of our education here at Woodpark. Much of the time during the day is given to students in every classroom to do Montessori work on their own. This is an independent activity, sometimes facilitated by the teacher, where everyone problem solves and practices learning through a variety of ways. Montessori Work is stimulating for the mind and encourages you to grow in your own unique learning
Misty Taking a Walk with the Kids
Meet our Director!
Miss Misty started at Woodpark when she was just 16 years old in 1995. Not only is she our director, but she is also our lead curriculum coordinator. Miss Misty has a very unique approach to teaching. One of her favorite activities to do with our students is go on nature walks. Pointing out all the different kinds of birds and trees is one of the many hands on activities she does.
