Pre-math starts at the age of two, when the cognitive curriculum activities are presented through the practical life and sensorial curriculum. The children learn sequence, recognition, quality of numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division through the use of both concrete and abstract materials.

Primary Program

Language Arts:

Children are taught phonics through the use of picture cards, object boxes, and sandpaper letters. They form words with movable alphabets. It is typical that a child as young as four years of age begins reading and writing in our Montessori program.

The next phase of our curriculum is the Primary Program; typically ages three and a half to six years old. During these years, children show an interest in exercises preparing them for writing. Objects like knobbed cylinders, geometric cabinets, sandpaper letters, and metal insets all help in the refinement of hand eye coordination.


They can handle a pencil and are interested in reproducing the letters of the alphabet. The equipment children use at this stage will help them to develop the concentration and work habits necessary for more advanced exercises to be performed at the ages of 5 to 6 years. It is the intent of the Teacher to provide guidance and a positive experience allowing them to make choices within set limits. All this creates a viable learning atmosphere.


The sensorial materials in the classroom help the child to become aware of details by offering him contrasted sensations while helping the child to distinguish and categorize new information.

Cultural Activities:

Children learn about history, geography, botany, and zoology. These lessons include various land and water forms, the study of animals and plants, etc. Reading and writing skills are used extensively during these activities.

Six major areas

Practical life:

Practical life exercises involve taking care of the self and the environment. These exercises improve the coordination, working habits, concentration, and attention span of a child.

We also emphasize extra-curricular activities
