Pre-Primary Program

"The first essential for the child's development is concentration. The child who concentrates is immensely happy." - Dr. Maria Montessori

This program is for children 18 months to 3 years.  The pace is unhurried in order to support the child in this early experience of independence from family.  Activities are simple and suited to their need, interests, and capabilities. Children are introduced to Montessori concepts as they learn the satisfaction of completing a task and as they assimilate language and develop communication skills. Other areas of learning include large muscle movement and fine motor exercises for hand-eye coordination. Practical life exercises such as pouring, sweeping, dusting, buttoning, zipping and table setting are introduced early, providing opportunities for children to care for themselves and their environment. Lessons of grace and courtesy are practiced daily to help the children learn to share things and be considerate of others.
