In our Primary Montessori program, 3- 4 and 5 years old children engage in learning along many dimensions.
Whether exposed to Montessori in Pre-primary class, or new to Montessori and new to school, the Primary program emphasizes Practical Life (self-control and negotiating the immediate environment) and Sensorial (experiencing through the senses in a structured fashion) as foundations for learning academic skills. The program offers an academically-enriched environment.
Acquiring academic skills becomes more important as the child grows in this environment.Through individual and small- group lessons of 3 to 4 children, our Primary Montessori program provides children the opportunity to learn Math and Language skills of writing and reading.
Under the guidance of credentialed Montessori teachers, each day each child chooses his own work – some may focus on letters and sounds, others on counting, others on practical life activities like sorting or pouring.
Through careful and comprehensive record keeping, teachers in the class develop individualized curriculum for each child. From this they know each child’s level of expertise in each learning area and then provide each child with lessons that are appropriate and timely for that specific child.
Our programs help develop cultural appreciation as our school serves children from diverse backgrounds.
Our Primary Montessori program is integrated with our Montessori Kindergarten program in such a class, providing exposure to younger children who show interest or, are ready for more complex and challenging lessons and skills
Children in our Primary Montessori and Kindergarten Programs also benefit from weekly programs in French and Spanish languages.
We offer Half-day, Full Day and Full Day Extended Day Primary programs for children ages between 3 and 6 year olds.
