Our Programs

Primary

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; and Mathematical activities that develop fundamental mathematical concepts; and Cultural activities that include geography, history, biology, science, music, and the arts.

Parent Involvement

Research shows that parent involvement has a greater effect on the child’s education than the economic class of the family and the parent’s education.
For this reason, we are requiring that parents and/or family members donate 15 hours per school year of Family Volunteer Time.
 

Lunch & Snacks

We provide a healthy morning and afternoon snack. Parents or caregivers are responsible for sending in a healthy lunch with their children.

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.
