Our Montessori Primary Program focuses on developing the whole child, integrating all aspects of development into a meaningful, joyful experience. This is an important time for cognitive, social, emotional, and motor development in children. It is ideally a 3-year cycle. The children benefit from knowing the same teacher throughout their stay in this program.
We encourage Kindergarten age children to attend five full days. The full-day program extends the Montessori morning and offers children more time to work on projects and participate in enriching opportunities including music and library.
Children work independently at their own pace… use hands-on materials to engage their senses… learn essential tools for reading, writing and math… learn respect for each other… gain self-confidence… enjoy circle times… help themselves to a snack… play outside… experience yearly themes that promote global interconnectedness… participate in a group… develop relationships with children and adults… experience hands-on zoology, geography, and botany… and develop a love of learning.
