What you need to know about the PRIMARY PROGRAM [3 Years – 6 Years]
Allow Your Child to Develop in Our Preschool Classroom
Loyally Catering to the Westchester, NY & Ft. Lauderdale, FL areas
Primary children possess a remarkable ability to absorb the world that surrounds them. Maria Montessori believed that the years from three to six are the most critical period for nurturing curiosity and for laying the foundation for all future development.
The goals of The Nurtury at this age are to foster independence, and to support children in moving toward mastery of self and their environment. It is a totally prepared Montessori Environment designed to encourage children in their self directed discovery of the world through interest based activities in Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, Geography, History, Art, Music and Science. These activities properly matched to the child’s ability level and interest help to develop within the child a love of learning.
Fundamental to Montessori theory is the multi-age classroom. The class must include children age three to six and children can work either individually or in a small group, learning from and sharing with one another.

Parent observations will be held twice a year prior to conferences. At the conference their will be a written report on each child progress to be discussed. Teachers will communicate frequently with parents through notes, phone calls and newsletters. As always, we invite you to visit our preschool classrooms in the Westchester, NY and Ft.
