This program offer part-time and full-time options. Part-time from any three days per week all the way up to full-time. Classtime is from 9:00am-12:00pm and/or 1:00pm-4:00pm but care is available from 7am-6:30pm.
These classes are held from 9 AM to noon and 1 PM to 4 PM , depending on location. The Primary class offers children a multi-age community in which to explore the Montessori prepared environment. This multi-age grouping (ages 3-6 years) is successful because the older child learns by being the leader in the classroom, and the younger child learns by observing the older child. This environment is intended to serve the child for three years.
The overall goals of this classroom are order, concentration, coordination, and independence. The children enjoy self-directed activities and experiences in the different areas of the classroom. Each area of the classroom — practical life, sensorial, language, math, cultural subjects (sciences), and art/music — is designed to invite the child to choose focused, purposeful work.
The children come together daily at circle for songs, poems, stories, demonstrations of work, games, and opportunities for expressive language and social development. The Preschool/Prekindergarten class supports the child’s sense of wonder and blossoming personhood.
