Primary Program - Primary classrooms are guided by Montessori certified lead guides. Each Primary Guide is assisted by a dedicated Assistant teacher. Together they help children in the primary classroom build a strong foundation in math, science, language and gain practical life skills that help them care for themselves and the environment around them.
Montessori materials are set up in the primary classrooms in a way that stimulates children’s curiosity and helps them learn independence, self-discipline, and respect.
We also offer before and after school care as well as other activities to help parents whose workday extends beyond school hours. During the summer the school runs a summer camp with a variety of experiences designed for primary aged students.
Make an appointment to visit our school and get more information about our primary program. You will be connected with our guides and staff to get an understanding to see if our school is a good fit for your little one. Learn about how we can help your children become well-rounded and capable adults.
