Mon-Fri, 9:03-2:30

This class offers children the most authentic Montessori experience of all of our programs.  This classroom is mixed ages three to six and the children develop very close relationships over the course of the year.  This is the only class where the children enjoy a formal Montessori lunch together daily, complete with place mats, dishware and silverware.  The children work together to both set up for and clean up after lunch.  Following lunch they have additional work time with the Montessori materials.  Many of our children spend multiple years in this program before moving on to Kindergarten or First Grade.
