  • Primary Program

    At the Primary level our educational program is based on the premise that young children flourish with gentle guidance and the freedom to work at their own pace. The carefully prepared environment of the 3-6 year old is designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive years— those times when there is a readiness to learn specific skills.

    Our rich classroom environments, full of hundreds of learning materials, facilitate the independent learning of skills moving from the concrete to abstract learning process. They are designed to put children at ease by giving them freedom within limits — a safe place to grow and learn.
