Montessori Lower Elementary (age 6 – 9)

Elementary Montessori education is designed around what Maria Montessori termed Cosmic Education. All subjects are intertwined, resulting in a meaningful understanding of the relationships between them.

The Montessori materials from the Elementary 6-9 classroom are introduced in a new way to develop a deeper understanding of the abstract concepts in Math, Language, Biology, Botany, Zoology, Geography, History, Earth Science, Life, and Physical Science, and Ecology. The curriculum guides the child through identifying, classifying, and researching all of the fascinating concepts in each chosen field of study. Teachers observe and record data to track each child’s growth, mastery of skills, lessons given and needed.  Regular conferences with each child help keep the child accountable for his or her work encouraging them to take responsibility for themselves.
