The Prepared Environment, the teacher, and the exquisitely attuned sensitivities of the child together produce a community of self-sufficient, curious and joyful children who eagerly participate in their education. The classroom is divided into five main areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics and Cultural.
During the three or four-year cycle, a child grows from being the youngest, to being in the middle, to being a community leader. Central to this process is the opportunity to experience, to learn and then to abstract and solidify knowledge through teaching, working, sharing and cooperating with others. At the completion of the Primary Years, the child is ready to move on to our Elementary Program or to first grade.
