Early Years

BIRTH TO 5 YEAR OLDS

Children from birth to age six posses an 'absorbent mind'. The Montessori environment is designed to support the child's optimal development through undergoing a process of self-construction.  

Primary Years

6 TO 12 YEAR OLDS

Children from age 6 onwards enter the 'age of reason'. Children develop their critical thinking and questioning. They develop their moral and social capacities and widen their horizons.  

“Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.” 
Dr. Maria Montessori
