Age One-Kindergarten

Children ages one through kindergarten take in a tremendous amount of information from their environment with what Maria Montessori called “the absorbent mind.” Our Primary preschool and kindergarten program provides an enriching hands-on learning experience with specially designed Montessori materials for math, language, sensorial exploration, practical life activities, art, science, and geography. By providing choice of activity and freedom of movement, students develop self-control, observational skills, and problem-solving skills. Through experimentation and discovery, our students move from concrete learning to abstraction as they prepare for more complex studies in our Country Day Lower Elementary program.

Based on best educational research in early childhood development practices, our rich classroom environments encourage exploration to build speech and language skills, practical life skills, and fine and gross motor skills. Montessori Primary Curriculum and accelerated learning opportunities promote languages and cognitive development through hands-on and experiential learning. Integration of Spanish, Chinese, American Sign Language, art, music, and movement are designed to meet the developmental needs of toddlers. Students move up from our program confident and well prepared for the transition into the Lower Elementary Montessori classrooms. Expand and explore the sections below for more details.
