Montessori Program 3 – 12 years
The Montessori Program is comprised of three developmental levels: Primary, Lower Elementary, and Upper Elementary.
Ages 3 –6
The classroom is a thriving community where children are treated with respect and dignity and want to treat others in the same way.
Ages 6 – 9
In an exciting research style of learning, elementary children work in small groups or individually on a variety of projects, which spark the imagination and engage the intellect.
Ages 9 – 12
Multi-age grouping provides for broad social development. The appetite of children at this age, to understand the universe and their place in it, directs the elementary work toward all aspects of the universe and beyond.
