Children in the Primary Class are introduced to a wide variety of activities designed to support and foster independence as they move toward mastery of themselves and their environment. Carefully designed lessons are presented by the Montessori guide in practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics and the cultural subjects, including music and art.
The precision and beauty of the prepared environment is the perfect match for the young child’s sensitive periods for language, movement and order. The clear and consistent ground rules of the primary environment strengthen the child’s respect for others and their work. Montessori materials allow the children to explore their work sensorially and the guide to introduce new concepts in a concrete manner, thereby providing rich impressions and laying the groundwork for further study in all areas of the curriculum.
