Pre-Primary Program

Supports a holistic development of self-esteem and a sense of autonomy, independence, and self-control. The program is designed around the basic Montessori concept of “let me do it by myself” and “freedom within limits”. The program also fully supports “sensory process” through art, music, movement, cooking, and sensorial time which is conducive to the joy of learning, emotional growth, concentration, and cognitive preparation for future intellectual academic endeavors.

Primary Program (Ages 3-6)

Supports strong social skills, inquiry, discovery, independence, and a sense of responsibility. Emphasis is put on language, literacy, and creative expression through art, music, and movement. Students will continue being challenged with their reading, math, and writing. Science, geography, and language continue being an integral part of the curriculum.
