Primary

The focus of the primary program (ages 2.5 to -6 years) is to develop confident, independent, compassionate students who are equipped with a strong academic foundation.

These three to four years of development are seen as crucial in the Montessori philosophy, and during this time children in our primary program set the course for future learning. During this time, we strive to:

  • Instill positive attitudes toward school,
  • Promote independence and self-confidence,
  • Help children develop good habits of concentration, initiative, and persistence,
  • Foster curiosity, inner security, and a sense of order,
  • Provide a prepared environment in which the child can express their joy of learning,
  • Provide a secure environment in which the child can grow both emotionally and academically,
  • Introduce the richness of different cultures and expand the knowledge of history and humankind’s place in the universe.

The primary classroom is divided into seven curriculum areas: practical life, sensorial, math, language, geography, science, and art. Classroom materials are arranged on shelves in an orderly, sequential manner and are available for individual use.

Teachers give individual and small group lessons to the children during the work period. Preschool children work with the Montessori materials until they master the concepts their teachers present to them. Because we work with the individual child, each child works toward the betterment of their own potential.
