Our Primary Program (Children’s House) is a three-year cycle for children from three to six. Each class is a multi-age grouping, balancing gender and developmental stages. A low student-teacher ratio assures maximum interaction with the teachers, and enables teachers to guide each child individually.
Our classrooms operate on the principle of freedom within limits. The children work at their own pace on the materials they select. A Montessori classroom helps children learn about themselves and work with others as they explore their environment. Individuality is promoted and balanced with an equal sense of responsibility and respect for the classroom community.
Each child works independently at activities in the five main areas of the classroom. The teacher gives individual presentations which are based upon child’s readiness and interest in the materials.
