For 3-year olds through Kindergarteners
Our Primary Program is a 3-year preparation to First Grade and includes Kindergarten. We welcome three, four and five-year old children to join-in the Primary Program at any stage.
Dr. Montessori discovered that the younger children in the classroom learn faster when emulating older children. Conversely, the older children retain a better understanding of the materials and concepts learned when they have the opportunity to "teach" the younger members of the community.
Children need an interactive, hands-on, educational environment to become self-motivated and successful learners. Here, children are free to explore with their senses to fully understand the world around them. In this way, our 3-year Primary Program provides children the security and consistency so important at this stage of their development.
Comfortable exploration in a known environment means that parents and teachers will develop a close working relationship on behalf of your child. The child is the focus of our school. We feel it is important that all of the people in your child's life (parents, teachers, peers) work together to help them develop confidence, independence and a love of learning.
