Our Montessori Primary Program covers the second half of the child’s most important years from ages 3 to 6. Our Montessori teachers continue building on their foundations for success and prepare them for a seamless transition to elementary school. In this program, you’ll see your child grow and explore and change from a little kid to a big kid who’s ready for elementary school.
Montessori is a proven method of learning from infant to high school. The most sensitive period of learning is birth to age 6. 90% of a child’s brain development occurs during this time.
In a Montessori classroom (or prepared environment), child centered learning is under the supervision of a lead Montessori teacher and assistant teachers. The children choose from a variety of age-appropriate materials that are available at their eye level to entice them. The teachers provide one-on-one instruction as well as group lessons. Children will revisit the materials to demonstrate mastery of a skill.
Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math, and Culture are the five main focus areas in our Primary classroom. The children work to master the skills introduced in the toddler program and are introduced to new skills in Primary. When they leave primary, they’re ready for elementary school.
Your Child’s Day in a Primary Classroom
The Montessori primary schedule includes a morning work cycle(s) where the children have time to explore their indoor and outdoor environments and they are empowered to choose lessons that are most interesting to them. They also have snack breaks, lunch, naps for those who need them, and outside playtime every day because we know play is the work of childhood. Children learn from play.
