Take a Peek Inside the Primary Classroom
It's a Mixed Age Classroom
Your child can learn at her own pace in a classroom with students of varying ages since the curriculum is tailored to each student's needs. Your smaller youngster can learn useful lessons from watching your older children interact with others. By serving as a role model for her younger peers, your older kid will develop confidence, leadership skills, and a sense of responsibility.
Child-Centered (Not Teacher-Centered)
While in a traditional classroom, kids are expected to listen intently to the teacher, our program accomplishes the opposite; instead, the educator will focus on your child's individual preferences and needs. Rather than lecturing to the whole class from atop a raised platform, teachers in today's modern classrooms spend much of their time working one-on-one or in small groups with the students.
One Size Does Not Fit All
The teacher is prepared to recognize your child's potential and match him with the lesson most appropriate for his current stage of development rather than following a predetermined curriculum based on his chronological age. Your kid will be stretched in ways that are appropriate for him, not to some predefined norm.
Essential Skills for a Successful Life
Your child will have the opportunity to develop into her full potential in the Primary classroom. Your child will learn how to solve conflicts, social graces, and selflessness toward peers through "grace and courtesy" exercises.
Montessori is a way of learning that lets your child build on what she has learned each year. Your child will stay in the Primary classroom for 3 years. This includes the traditional "kindergarten year," when the learning seeds start to grow. Sounds and signs bring reading and writing to life. She learns about numbers and how the decimal system works. She learns about shapes and the countries that make up our world. She leaves the program with strong academic skills, but what's much more important is that she thinks learning is fun, exciting, and has no limits.
