Our Primary program is designed for children ages 3 to 6. It offers an academically-enriched environment within in a well-ordered social community. Social, mental and cognitive development flourishes in this multi-age, three-year cycle. Through the use of age-appropriate and carefully chosen materials and activities, children grow in personal independence, concentration, self-motivation, and develop a genuine love of learning. The combination of defined social structure and intellectual atmosphere is propelled by the unique ability of children this age to absorb their environment, language, and culture.
At this stage of development, children learn very effectively through their senses. Our Montessori materials provide sensory discovery and description while empowering the child’s natural desire to explore, classify, and order their environment. The math area uses carefully prepared tools that lead the child through a logical mathematical thought process from concrete to abstract. Our carefully planned environment encourages growth in oral language, written expression, reading, and even grammar elements.
