Primary Classroom

Primary Classroom

There are no limits for our preschool children at this age; they have boundless energy and unlimited curiosity. Our classrooms encourage exploration with sensorial materials—objects to touch, hold, move, spin, and smell—and everything is sized to fit the child’s hand. The 3-year cycle provides a close community and the opportunity for younger children to observe and learn from older students. The curriculum is rich and includes practical life skills, language, math, geography, science, nature, art, music, and Spanish. And every lesson stresses the use of grace and courtesy.
