In addition to regular artwork and art exposure in their classrooms, TMS offers students opportunities for additional work and study in the Art Studio and weekly Art Immersion classes. For our students under the age of five, TMS offers regular access to the Art Studio. With Montessori principles in mind it is designed to give children the same freedom of choice in their open-ended, free flowing art as they have in their regular classrooms. The purpose is to provide an environment and materials to foster the innate creativity within each child.
Music surrounds us here at TMS. We celebrate music from all genres the entire month of March, but we also incorporate a music intensive program once a week in our Primary classrooms with our traveling music teacher going to each classroom for a special lesson. Private piano lessons are also available on site during school hours for our Primary and Elementary children.
Primary students enjoy a trip to the TMS Library every Friday to explore adventures on pages and to pick out a special book to bring home for the week. This connects the home to our school, as parents and children can enjoy story time at home.
Soccer Shots is an engaging children’s soccer program with a focus on character development. Our caring team positively impacts children’s lives on and off the field through best-in-class coaching, communication, and curriculum. Our coaches are the best-trained in the business. Our expert-approved curriculum is age-appropriate and aligns with Virginia’s Early Childhood Education Learning Standards. In addition, we provide an exceptional customer experience and ongoing communication with parents.
TMS is committed to early exposure to world languages. Currently we provide Spanish instruction to our Primary students. The classes are taught with a hands-on approach integrating movement, pictures, songs, and matching cards. The teacher instructs the students predominantly in Spanish and uses English only when necessary. She uses a combination of reference and pedagogical materials to design a developmentally appropriate curriculum unique to TMS.
