Primary Mornings

(3 year olds)

Our youngest children are invited to join us for a complete morning work cycle between the hours of  8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.  This provides the opportunity for them to experience the fullness of the Montessori community and to participate meaningfully within the boundaries of their development. 

Primary Kindergarten 

(5 and 6 year olds) 

The Primary Extended Day is essential to the child as he completes the three year cycle.  It is a time for consolidation of all that has been experienced during the previous two years.  The most advanced work is done during this time as the Kindergartner begins to reach a new plane of development.

Primary Montessori 

(3 and 4 year olds)

We understand that today’s lifestyle often includes a real need for extended care. The Primary Montessori Program was designed to provide a flawless integration of the Primary Morning multi-aged environment with activities that support the Montessori philosophy throughout the day.  Extending the day allows the younger and middle children the opportunity to experience the noon meal within the environment.  Truly unique and gracious, this daily event is orchestrated by the children.  In the afternoon there is time for rest and quiet work.  It is a natural extension of the morning work cycle that supports the life of the child.

Additional Care

Our Additional Care program is an extension of the regular Montessori day.  If provides a seamless transition into the early evening hours of the regular school day.  Children enjoy a light snack with relaxing activities that include gardening, craft work, reading, art, music and plenty of outdoor play.
