Primary Program (3 - 6 Years)

Our early Primary classrooms are designed to meet the ever-changing needs of the three± to six-year-old± child. Beauty and order play important roles in creating a child-size atmosphere, which is carefully designed to encourage curiosity and a love of learning.

The Primary program is thoughtfully designed to help each child:

 

  • Develop a solid academic foundation and desire for lifelong learning;

  • Develop independent decision-making and problem-solving skills;

  • Become an integral member of the classroom community; and

  • Develop positive social, emotional, and physical skills in a safe and respectful environment.

 

A typical day for a young student includes time when the class gathers together in a circle to sing songs and learn about something new; perhaps the topic is dinosaurs or how to greet a friend with a handshake. Children in a primary Montessori classroom learn to maneuver about their classroom with confidence, exploring concepts in arithmetic, reading and writing, geography, science, and activities of daily life such as preparing their own snack or washing dishes. Children learn skills in grace and courtesy, naturally caring and teaching each other, respecting classroom activities, and learning to clean up after themselves. Students are given ample time outside and the Primary program includes farm and foreign language programs.
