Children begin the Primary level at the age of 3 and remain three years with the same teacher and class. Over the three-year period, the children develop a sense of responsibility and belonging, much as they do in a family. Dr. Montessori called her school “The Children’s House” because it is designed with child size furniture, real materials that have purpose and meaning to a child, and the space for them to move freely and perfect their motor coordination. The teacher guides the child to put him/her in touch with a rich variety of activities in the environment that facilitate cognitive, social, and spiritual development. Children learn to become competent in practical life skills, sensorial education, language, math, and geography/cultural lessons. Students also receive weekly Spanish and Music instruction, in addition to their daily music and movement times. Children in their 3rd year of Primary (Kindergarten) also receive weekly: Writer’s Workshop, Math Games Workshop, advanced Spanish, Art, Drama, Geography/Cultural Spotlight, and Yoga. Our Kindergarten curriculum is aligned with the CT Common Core to be sure our students are prepared and reap all the benefits of a third year Montessori program.
