Serving children ages six to twelve.
The unique curriculum of a Montessori Elementary classroom exposes children to a world of learning. Elementary students are encouraged to explore topics which capture their imagination. Within the walls of each Elementary classroom, all subject areas are carefully designed to promote optimum learning for all students.
“Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.”
Dr. Maria Montessori
The Montessori Elementary Program is divided into two planes of development. Each plane is based on a three-year cycle, the second being dependent on what is learned and accomplished in the first. For this reason, if you are considering Montessori elementary for your child, understand he/she will need to begin the program at age six.
- Lower Elementary – First-Third grade
- Upper Elementary– Fourth-Sixth grade
