The Montessori School’s Primary Program is for children between the ages of 2 ½  and 6 ½  with children typically entering the program between the ages of 2 ½ and 3 ½ . These classrooms are designed based upon Maria Montessori’s observations of children’s developmental needs at these ages and their natural tendencies toward self-motivation, relationship with others, mastery of their environment and independence.

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.
