The Pre-primary program provides concrete Montessori exercises, which enables children to learn many different concepts at their own pace and level of readiness.   The materials and lessons of our classrooms are arranged from simple to complex and concrete to abstract, so that the child may learn by choice of materials. Each piece of the Montessori apparatus is designed to give children a new experience and to develop a specific concept. Subjects include Language, Math, Geography, Science and Social-Studies. Students also participate in Spanish, Computer, Music and Physical Education classes in addition to reading time in our school library.
