The New Century School in Fell’s Point in Baltimore, MD offers a high-quality individualized education in a supportive environment. The preschool program follows a Montessori curriculum, stressing choice, learning from peers, and the cultivation of concentration. The elementary program takes a modified Montessori approach, featuring small mixed-aged classes, technology, arts, and hands-on science. Schoolwide, we focus on teaching children to be gracious and kind to one another. At TNCS, we strive to take full advantage of the sensitive period for language acquisition, the wonderful window that exists before about age 7 or 8 years when a child can learn a second or third language with little effort. We begin with complete language immersion in either Spanish or Mandarin Chinese for the toddler classes, then transition to partial language immersion and daily language classes for the Preschool and Elementary classes.
TNCS is committed to providing each child the opportunity to become an independent, secure, and balanced human being. Each child cultivates his or her natural intellectual curiosity while developing leadership skills and the ability to think critically. We embrace the individual and design developmentally appropriate activities and lessons to engage and enrich.
