The experiences a child has in the first years of Montessori aid in helping to develop concentration, coordination and work habits necessary for advanced learning. The younger a child enters Montessori, the more the child will benefit. Of course, there are tremendous benefits to be gained at any age.
When a child turns five years old and is physically, intellectually and socially mature enough to handle additional academic work, the child is admitted to the Extended Day program. This is the equivalent of the kindergarten year, in most cases, if a child turns five years old before August 31st. Talk to one of our teachers for details.
It is the child who makes the man, and no man exists who was not made by the child he once was.
Hours: 8:00am to 2:30pm for ages 6 to 10 (Grades 1-5)
Montessori considers the elementary time frame the second stage of development and a time of great stability. This program allows each student to work at his or her own pace without interruptions from bells or sudden changes of subject.
Students are taught mathematics, language arts, social studies, botany, zoology, science, geography, culture, world religions, history, Spanish, music and physical education.
Our program meets all the North Carolina Department of Non-Public Instruction requirements including standardized testing for grades 3-5.
"To assist a child we must provide him with an environment which will enable him to develop freely." -Maria Montessori
