Preschool & Kindergarten

Ages 3 -6 years old

​The Primary program offers an unique, mixed-age classroom environment, for children 3 to 6 years old. Our program allows for children to learn by doing. The concrete materials in the classroom allow the children explore the world through their senses, through touch and motion, and by observing and engaging with others.

Students work with specially designed materials, manipulating and investigating until they master the lesson inside. Teachers are in the classroom as facilitators to help in guiding students through the curriculum, introducing lessons and then letting children practice what they have learned. As children grow, the classroom materials grow with them in the sense that older children use the materials to explore curriculum in new and deeper ways.

Practical learning experiences explore key subjects including:

  • Science and Nature
  • Music and Movement
  • Sensorial
  • Cultural Awareness
  • African Studies
  • Geography
  • Language Arts
  • Mathematics

In addition to the academic curriculum, children will also participate in enrichment activities:

  • Drumming
  • ​Movement Classes
  • Second Language Classes
  • Indoor/Outdoor Play​
