Stimulate and develop your child's love for learning
The academic and social mission of the Elementary program is to stimulate a child's love for learning by responding to the older child’s changing needs, abilities, and sensitivities. The tendency to explore, order the environment, to imagine and think in abstract terms moves the child towards independence. The boundaries for the older child’s environment are expanded both cognitively and abstractly. Students develop self-esteem and learn to think for themselves by becoming fully engaged in the process of their own learning: through the nurturing of lasting individual and community-oriented habits. Many children work beyond grade level on some subjects and at grade level on others. The Montessori method allows for this.

- Carefully selected materials based on your child's age
