Elementary Program

MCS offers toddler, early childhood, kindergarten, and elementary programs based upon the educational philosophy of Maria Montessori. This philosophy promotes self-reliance, a love for learning, and a healthy respect for the rights of individuals. The Montessori Method of education views each child as a whole being whose physical, emotional, social and cognitive parts are all interrelated. Our programs are structured to provide relaxed and secure environments to stimulate the child’s natural curiosity.

Elementary Program

The lower elementary curriculum covers the following subject areas: language arts, math, history, geography, botany, and zoology. The students use materials that are extensions of those found in the early childhood environment and kindergarten environment as they move from the concrete to the abstract. The upper elementary students cover the same subject areas. Fewer concrete materials are used as they move to the abstract with research-based study.

The Montessori elementary program fosters respect for each other, their environment and the world. The students engage in community based activities that offer them opportunities to relate their classroom studies to the world.

The elementary program meets Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Admission to our elementary program is based on directress recommendation. Students without previous Montessori experience will be evaluated for admission.
