For children in the Primary program, the day starts at 9 am and ends at 3:00 pm.

Learning objectives include Montessori work in all areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math, Science, Cultural and other activities such as art, music and more. The activities in each classroom promote independence, order, coordination, and concentration, as well as support social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.

Nap/Rest time for this age group is after lunchtime, although it is not mandatory that they nap.

Snacks are provided for the morning and afternoon, whilst your child is expected to bring their lunch every day.


The Montessori teaching philosophy provides many benefits to preschoolers. Some of these are:

  • The opportunity for growth in all aspects

  • Prepares them for Kindergarten

  • Encourages social and emotional development

  • Teaches them to begin making independent choices

  • Promotes language and analytical/cognitive skills

  • Assists in developing gross and fine motor skills

The Montessori House of Children is committed to providing a prepared Montessori environment in which a child can freely and naturally realize his or her fullest potential.

The Montessori Method

Our educational program is founded on the philosophy of Italian physician and educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori was the first woman to receive a medical degree from the University of Rome. She devoted her life’s work to the observation of young children and their learning. Her Montessori preschool method was created after she worked with children for over 40 years. The Montessori method is known and practiced throughout the world and is well respected.
