The Primary educational program is based on the premise that young children flourish with gentle guidance and the freedom to work at their own pace. The carefully prepared environment of the 2 ½ to 5 year old is designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive years, those times when there is a readiness to learn specific skills such as reading and writing and to help develop concentration. In order to learn there must be concentration.
Our rich classrooms environments, full of hundreds of learning materials, facilitate the independent learning of skills allowing the child to move from concrete to abstract learning. Our attractively prepared materials are designed to help children learn by performing with their hands. They are designed to put children at ease by giving them freedom within limits, a safe place to grow and learn.
Students are exposed to geography, practical life, sensorial, language, math, science, and social emotional development through a thoughtfully prepared Montessori environment. Our Montessori trained staff are astute observers of the child’s needs and prepare individualized goals and lessons for each child.
