Our Programs

Primary (ages 2.5 - 6)

The primary curriculum is designed with the understanding that children learn best through real-life activities that support independence, concrete experiences that engage the senses, and open-ended exploration.  This leads to the refinement of their movements, sensory perceptions, language and intellect development. Children thrive through opportunities to follow their own interests and freely choose their own scaffolded activities.  Through guided exploration they develop independence,concentration and curiosity.

Montessori materials for the primary age are designed to support self-directed discovery and learning.

 

They are organized around:

  • Practical Life activities that develop both independence and concentration

  • Sensorial activities that refine and develop the child’s senses

  • The development of Spoken Language, Writing and Reading skills

  • Mathematical activities that develop fundamental mathematical concepts

  • Cultural activities that include geography, history, biology, science, music, and the arts

Elementary

Lower Elementary (ages 6 - 10)

Elementary curriculum uses "The Great Stories" as a springboard for interdisciplinary learning.  In this way, children learn about their place in the cosmic universe.

 

There are five Great Lessons that are introduced:

  • The Coming of the Universe

  • The Timeline of Life

  • The Timeline of Humans

  • The Story of Math

  • The Story of Language

Each of these lessons initiates curiosity or interests connected to other academic areas. These stories spark the imagination of Elementary students and give them a context for deeper engagement and learning. 

 

Instead of approaching schoolwork as discrete subjects, Montessori Elementary students discover the interrelationship between subject areas and understand how math, language, science, and history are connected and important for understanding and learning.

The child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope that humanity can develop in a new direction.
