At ages 3-6, children focus their attention on the order of things, have more control and coordination over their mind and body and continue to become more independent. Our primary classrooms are designed to meet the ever changing needs of the 3-6 year old class. Creating order is an important role in this environment, which is designed to encourage curiosity and a love for learning.
With Montessori principles as our guide each child has the opportunity to:
- Develop a social academic foundation and desire for lifelong learning
- Encourage independent decision making and problem solving skills
- Develop positive social, emotional and physical growth in a respectful environment
A typical day in the primary classroom consists of learning how to manage their time, explore and share new ideas with other classmates. Students spend their morning maneuvering through the classroom, exploring works in areas such as geography, math, language, science and engaging in daily living activities such as preparing snacks, caring for plants, learning to tie their shoes and most importantly learning to respect each other and their environment. Each day will also involve outside free play. At our preschool, children grow to love learning and discover their interests and abilities through stimulating and engaging activities.
