Between ages three and six, children readily absorb all aspects of their environment in a quest to become part of their culture.  

Montessori Primary Level provides an educational setting rich in factual and beautiful materials, where children construct their own intelligence with meaningful and purposeful work. 

At The Children's Garden, the Montessori Primary Level introduces children to a larger classroom community where they learn the fundamental academic concepts that are the foundation for their later learning.  The teacher presents new ideas and hands-on materials as each child is ready and shows interest.

We keep the class size small to ensure close interaction between child and educator.

Children choose their own work with the guidance of the teacher when necessary, and work independently or in small groups.  This freedom to make choices is important to the development of responsibility and self-mastery for which Montessori students are known.

By the end of Montessori Primary Level most children are writing in cursive and able to read simple stories of their own creation that they enjoy illustrating with a drawing or water color painting.  They understand mathematical operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and know many math facts, as well as the names of continents and their countries, animals and plants
