6-9 year old children
In our Lower Elementary Montessori program, our young students acquire the foundational skills they need for success in school, and in life. In a multi-age setting, your 6 to 9 year old will master reading, writing and arithmetic.

In our classrooms, students learn to organize their own plans for learning, including managing their workspace, and then follow through and execute on those plans.
