Primary Programs provide children with a unique opportunity designed to take advantage of the child's sensitive years from two and a half to six, when they can absorb information most easily from an enriched, prepared environment. To develop concentration, self-discipline, critical thinking and problem solving, language, math and creative abilities, preschools-kindergarten children need an environment that allows them to learn in an interactive manner.
The curriculum is designed to stimulate the development of the "Whole Child." Children expending their social skills and intellectual abilities, and gain self-esteem and self-confidence through activities that promote "practical life" skills. They learn to support and serve one another's needs within the classroom community. They also engage in creative arts and multicultural activities, as well as reading, writing and math exercises.
By pursuing individual interests in a Montessori classroom, children gain an early enthusiasm for learning and a strong individual foundation on which to build their lives-a foundation from which they can sour in the next plane of development: the elementary years.
