Primary & Kindergarten

(3-6 years old)


"The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn."

-Maria Montessori


Who is the 3-6 year old student?

a child places the last block on the Montessori pink tower

The young child is curious about everything and needs to explore and discover.

Their absorbent mind will consciously seek certain experiences as they work to construct their individuality. 

They will demonstrate an innate (and often intense) desire to make choices for themselves and to accomplish tasks independently

They learn best through real-life activities that support independence and self-efficacy as they strive to create order in their world. 

Our private preschool program is specifically designed to meet the needs of children ages 3 – 6 years. 

Our private kindergarten program is a unique and wonderful experience for children that are 5 years old by September 30.
