The Montessori Children’s House, often called “Primary”, is a place where the 3-6 year old child continues to build himself physically, socially and intellectually. In stark contrast to traditional schooling, this child-directed environment has an order that promotes freedom. This kind of liberty ignites an enthusiasm for learning and fosters self-esteem, self-control and independence through the Montessori curriculum.
The second plane of child development, sometimes called middle childhood, begins around age seven and will last until adolescence. These are first through sixth graders and for the first time in this child’s life they are experiencing the world with a reasoning mind. In the beginning of this plane the children immerse themselves into the social communities in which they are provided with outside of their homes.
