Advanced Primary: Ages 3 1/2 to 6

The Montessori Advanced Primary learning environment is intended to give each child the confidence to learn about the environment by experimenting and movement. Each child works freely and independently, based on one's own resourcefulness and ingenuity, but with measured guidance from the teachers. The learning environment includes broad subject matter, from biology to music to mathematics, both indoors and outdoors.
