“It is true that we cannot make a genius. We can only give to each child the chance to fulfill his potential.” ~ Maria Montessori
By the age of 6, a child is ready to understand many things in the abstract, and to organize knowledge in a personal way. From the child’s direct experience with concrete materials comes understanding. Out of understanding comes abstraction and deduction. In our Kindergarten/1st Grade Program, children focus and excel in the joy of learning and are encouraged to reach their full potential. The Montessori “cosmic curriculum” includes Language and Mathematics; from concrete to abstract. Cultural subjects include Botany, Zoology, History, Science, Geography, Art/Art History and Music.
With primary basics, children develop greater fluency and understanding in reading, writing and math. Here, the Montessori child experiences it all – individual learning, social interaction and a oneness with the natural environment!
