Primary Classroom

Preschool for 3 to 5 year olds

Primary 4The primary program is designed for three to five year old children and includes a wide array of Montessori learning material to support our self-paced curriculum and enrichment areas.  Children experience the freedom to move about in a prepared environment of hands-on learning activities, developing high levels of independence.  Our well-trained teaching staff watches for the individual child’s readiness and facilitates their progress to the next level of conceptual development. Group time, outdoor play, and snacks are also important parts of our daily routine.
