3 years to 6 years old.
Primary children experience the excitement of learning by making their own choices in our environment. They work both independently and cooperatively, learning to respect the work of others in the class. The mixed-age grouping gives older children the opportunity to serve as mentors to the younger students in the room. Our Primary environment fosters a strong sense of responsibility and community that can be seen as children work harmoniously within the same space.
Our Primary teachers cultivate the individual child’s natural desire to learn with the goal of inspiring lifelong learning. They move through the classroom facilitating children’s work choices and social relationships as they carefully observe and record the key points of each child’s day.
For both full day and half day students, a healthy morning snack is included and a choice of either bringing a lunch from home or purchasing a freshly prepared lunch. Full day students will be given the opportunity to nap after lunch from 12:30 to 2:30 on their own cot. A healthy afternoon snack will be served to our full day students as well.
