Authentic for every child.learn visit apply
The Half Day Montessori Primary Program is a three-year program for children ages 3-6 years.
Students in the program stay in the same classroom for all three years, developing a stable and secure relationship with their Directress (teacher).
They will gain confidence in their abilities through repeated successes, build independence as they practice and master life-skills, fine-tune their small and large motor muscles to refine their coordination, and learn order and sequencing to later complete complex math problems or write a story.
Language, Math, Science, and Geography are the academic areas of the classroom that children work in each day. Additionally, children form and shape their social-emotional skills as they practice working in small groups, learn how to problem-solve with their peers, and lend a hand when others need help.
First Year (3-4 year old) Additional Enrichment Program
(This Enrichment programs are for students in their first year of the Primary program. Children enrolled in this program eat lunch from 11:30am-12:30pm. Program is contingent upon enrollment.)
Food, Fitness and Fun
Once a week children will exercise their minds and bodies through fitness such as locomotor activities, ball handling, and small group games. We will explore nature outside by going on nature walks around the park, or making fun food recipes to eat. There will be a short rest period before beginning these activities.
