Toddler Program

The first two years of life are the most important. Observation proves that small children are endowed with special psychic powers, and points to new ways of drawing them out literally "educating by cooperating with nature."

Maria Montessori believed that as children develop security, safety and a feeling of trust on their way to independence, the message they are trying to convey to us through their actions and words is: "Help me do it by myself".

Primary Program

Children are exposed to amazing amounts of knowledge and often learn to read, write and calculate beyond what is often thought usual for a child of this age.

Although the entrance age varies in individual schools, a child can usually enter a Montessori classroom at age three. They will begin with the simplest exercise based on activities which all the children enjoy. Maria Montessori said: "Education is acquired not by listening to words, but by the experiences in the environment."

Elementary Program

The curriculum takes on a more conventional appearance of books and writing activities, since children now function more through abstract reasoning and are no longer as sensitive to the physical environment. The elementary children store and organize a great amount of knowledge from among a wide range of different subject matter areas and disciplines.

It places an emphasis on learning the valuable life skills of research, critical thinking, decision making and problem solving, and in doing so moves children from concrete to abstract learning. Maria Montessori said: "You yourselves must be filled with wonder. When you have acquired that, you are prepared."
