The Primary programs are five days per week programs with a three year duration. This prepares the child to enter elementary school. The child’s classroom is a prepared environment using unique Montessori materials designed to stimulate interest and exploration. Children learn by associating abstract concepts with a myriad of sensorial experiences. Hands and minds work together; doing and manipulating, rather than simply observing. The Montessori method is a structure of both academic and practical exercises that lead to a development of both the mind and the child’s individual motor skills to assist in learning.
The children build concentration, attention to detail and self-discipline while working towards completion of tasks. Courtesies, as well as respect for others and the environment are important aspects of daily classroom life.
Apart from the work in Language, Mathematics, Sensorial, Practical Life and Cultural Subjects, the program provides students with the opportunity to develop good socialization skills and a strong sense of self-worth.
The Primary Program is geared to the size, pace, and interest of the students. The goal of the program is to cultivate the child’s own natural desire to learn.
