The Primary Program, also known as the Children’s House, serves children from approximately three to six years of age.
The environment is carefully prepared using Montessori principles that allow the children to choose work according to their interests and developmental level. The Montessori teacher initially presents the specially designed Montessori educational materials. Each child works at his/her own pace, repeating activities, making choices, and developing abilities through exploration of his/her work. Indirect learning occurs as children observe the work of others and in turn share what they have learned with their classmates. In this way, children explore basic concepts of literacy, numeracy, geography, music, art and care of self and the environment.
