The primary classroom in a Montessori school is about experiencing freedom – and learning the responsibility that comes with it. By kindergarten age, children are gaining confidence in their skills and becoming leaders for the younger students in their classroom.
A Montessori-certified teacher leads the class with an assistant teacher, moving from student to student to present materials on an individual basis to match each student’s ability level. Our teachers spend time observing your child’s progress and taking notes to help decide which lessons and materials he or she will be ready for next.
Children learn in 6 main classroom areas. Math, Language and Art are all featured. Lessons included practical life skills like pouring from a pitcher and how to tie shoes, while sensorial shelves offer materials to practice and explore colors, shapes and sizes. Our cultural curriculum includes science and geography, as well as our unique STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) lessons.
As part of our primary classroom, our 5 day full-time kindergarten age students are an integral part of the 3 year cycle.
As the oldest children in the classroom, they build leadership skills while mastering developmentally appropriate materials.
