Ages 2 1/2 Years to 6 Years
Our Montessori Primary program offers a unique, mixed-age classroom for children 2 1/2 years to 5 years of age. This beautifully prepared classroom guides children through an individual learning experience tailored to their individual needs, wants, and interests – focusing on the development of work habits, rather than memorization of information! Our classrooms are founded on the philosophy that children have a natural desire to learn, and by giving them the tools they need to go deeper in their own education, children can self curate lifelong skills in concentration, independence, refining fine motor skills, and develop a natural sense of order — all of which are needed for a lifetime of control and coordination of mind and body. Additionally, our Primary Program offers one-on-one instruction from our Montessori trained Guide, giving a student the opportunity for a deeper understanding of a work cycle, as well as an opportunity for the teacher to understand the individual needs and strengths of a student.
Children in our Primary classroom use concrete materials to learn math, explore language, find spacial relationships between objects, and deepen their understanding of categorization. By allowing the freedom of movement through our well defined curriculum, our students are discovering independence, confidence, and innovation – taking ownership of their own education! Children leave our program with a well rounded understanding of a multitude of subjects, including:
- Science and Nature
- Music and Movement
- Cooking, Nutrition, and Self-Care
- Cultural Awareness
- Language Arts
