Primary Program

 3-6 year olds

materials-1The Children’s House (Primary Program) is a three-year program for preschool children 3 to 6 years of age. On occasion, children who are fully toilet-trained may begin at 2 ½ years of age, and in this case, the child may be in the Children’s House Program for four years, rather than three. As of 2018-19, all children who stay beyond noon will be eating lunch in their own Montessori classroom along with other children from their community.

materials-10The Children’s House After School (CHAS) program is for students in the Children’s House classrooms whose parents are seeking care beyond the regular Montessori program. Our CHAS teachers provide a warm and stimulating play environment. This program complements your child’s experiences in the Montessori environment.  Children spend time pursuing interests such as blocks, arts and crafts, creative dramatics, outdoor play and much more!
