Lower Elementary

6 years– 8.9 years

Our Lower Elementary program includes children in first and second grade who are becoming more social and begin to gain the ability to think abstractly. Goals in this class includes parking the drive to learn and creativity and allowing socialization between the children. Children learn to work independently and with each other.

This multi-age community is directed by a certified teacher acting as a guide. The curriculum includes reading, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Students will be introduced to various subjects like physics, zoology, and botany.

Montessori works aid each child’s learning. The indoor learning environment accentuates natural light. Outdoor learning may include gardening and exploring in nature. Project-based learning challenges each student to plan and prioritize while engaging in unique hands-on projects like carpentry, entrepreneurship, and home economics.
