Primary & Kindergarten
2 1/2 - 6 years
Our campuses offer a broad curriculum in multi-age classrooms, designed for the development of the whole person – mentally, physically, and emotionally. All students participate in the academic program and are presented with materials designed to ignite the innate and life-long joy of learning. Curricular materials and activities are interrelated and are arranged into the following areas: Practical Life, Sensorial/Geometry, Language, Mathematics, and Cultural.
Proficiency in everyday life skills is developed through the use of reality based activities, enabling the student to gain self-confidence, concentration, coordination and independence. The student is encouraged to develop a sense of responsibility for care of self and care for the environment.
Sensorial / Geometry
Students are continually surrounded by new sensations. The sensorial materials activate the child’s absorption of these new impressions. Included are exercises to develop and refine the senses - tactile, auditory, visual, olfactory, gustatory, and stereognostic. These skills translate into the geometry curriculum in the elementary classroom.
The child learns language naturally from his environment. In order to develop these skills in language, pre-reading and pre-writing exercises begin with the concrete and move to the abstract. The alphabet identified by its sounds is presented with sandpaper letters that provide a phonic base for reading. Students then advance through the curriculum, developing skills in reading, writing, and grammar.
Using concrete materials designed to encourage understanding of quantity to numeral relationships, place value, and mathematical functions, the child moves to a new level of understanding.
Students gain a global perspective of the universe through exploration and research in these areas:
- Earth Science
- Environmental Education
- World Cultures
