Our Programs

Primary

The primary curriculum is designed with the understanding that children learn best through real-life activities that support independence, concrete experiences that engage the senses, and open-ended exploration.  This leads to the refinement of their movements, sensory perceptions, language and intellect development. Children thrive through opportunities to follow their own interests and freely choose their own scaffolded activities.  Through guided exploration they develop independence, concentration and curiosity.

Montessori materials for the primary age are designed to support self-directed discovery and learning. They are organized around Practical Life activities that develop both independence and concentration; Sensorial activities that refine and develop the child’s senses; the development of Spoken Language, Writing and Reading skills; and Mathematical activities that develop fundamental mathematical concepts; and Cultural activities that include geography, history, biology, science, music, and the arts.

Lunch and Snacks

Parents are required to provide lunch for their child. This meal must consist of nutritional food from the following food groups: (minimum portion sizes for a 3-6 year old) protein (1 12 oz), grain (12 slice bread or 1/4 C pasta, etc), and two foods from the fruit/vegetable group (V2.C.). Fluid milk is also required which the center will provide. All food items must be stored in a lunch box/bag clearly marked with your child’s name. The lunches will be stored in the classroom, please be sure to include ice packs in your child’s lunch if foods need to be kept cold. If a lunch does not meet the nutritional requirements then the center is mandated to provide the additional food(s).

The child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope that humanity can develop in a new direction.
