Highlighting the Primary Program at CMS

“Help me to do it myself, think for myself, and be a member of my community.”

At the heart of Community Montessori is this philosophy that guides the child at the Primary level (3 to 6 years), the Elementary level (6 to 12 years), and the Middle School level (grades 7 and 8).

Maria Montessori viewed education as an aid to life, with each program created to meet the unique developmental needs of children.

Montessori education is designed to help children with their task of self-construction from childhood to maturity.

The Primary program gives all children time to experience an unhurried and relaxed work time with focus and concentration.

Children choose work that meets their innermost needs.

Primary Program features include:

  • Half-day programs for 3 to 4-year-olds (8:15 to 11:45 a.m.)
  • Full-day programs for 3 to 6-year-olds (8:15 to 3 p.m.)
  • Before School Care (7:20 to 8:15 a.m.) and After School Care (3-6 p.m.)
  • Constancy of care in the Montessori prepared environment
  • Multi-age classrooms.
