Ages 3 – 6 years

The Primary classroom offers a program that allows for intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. Montessori primary builds upon the child’s knowledge of the present, while establishing the foundation for later abstract learning. The Primary classroom, through freedom of choice and freedom of movement, allows the child to work independently and explore the environment while building concentration and self-discipline.
