At the Children's Place Montessori School, Our Primary program is suitable for children from about 3 �6 years of age.
In keeping with Dr.
Montessori's discoveries about the optimal environment for children in this period of development, we have a mixed-age classroom.
The younger children are fascinated and motivated by the more advanced activities of the older children and the older children learn a great deal by serving as mentors to the younger ones.
The optimal cycle for a program of this sort is a full 3 years for ages 3�6.
We accept children at any age in that range provided they are ready to benefit from a Montessori program, and we also have a Toddler program for children 18 months through 3 years, when they are ready for the Primary program.
Our Elementary program is for students in the 1st�6th grades.
In the elementary years, Montessori continues to offer each student a personal and individualized curriculum within an atmosphere where community values are stressed.
The intellectual and social spheres of the elementary child are expanding greatly, and the elementary program reflects these changes.
