Primary Program refers to the classroom that is designed for the three to six year old child. This classroom offers a mixed age environment to offer those benefits described within the Montessori philosophy. There are many benefits to blending these age groups together. In addition to the Montessori curriculum, teachers will emphazise education of the world around them (the students) including the lands, the people, cultures, plants, and animals. Students will learn about these things from various viewpoints during their years in the primary classroom including classification, biome and continental perspectives.

Pre-Primary Program refers to the classroom that is designed for the two to three and a half year old child. This program is designed specifically to prepare children for the primary classroom. The lessons offered in the pre-primary classroom will aid students in developing the independence, social and academic skills needed to be successful in the primary program. Toilet training will also be a goal for children in the pre-primary program to prepare for the preparation of the primary classroom as well.
