Ages 3-6   (Grades PK3-1st)

Every person was created in the image and likeness of God.  (Gen 1:27)

Experiential and Montessori-based to increase confidence, emotional intelligence, and independence.

The goal is to grow a unique, curious and independent spirit.

The Primary Studio is an authentic Montessori environment of whole child development:  cognitive, physical, emotional and social.  Children learn and discover through play and exploring natural interests.  The Primary Studio builds foundations of reading, goal setting and independent learning skills that prepare young people to soar in the Elementary Studio.




Practical life activities enhance the development of control and movement, sequencing and concentration through inviting and purposeful work.

Sensorial materials enable the child to order, classify and describe sense experiences such as dimension, color, texture, sound and sight.

Language includes oral language development, written expression, reading, elements of grammar, and literature. 

Mathematics makes use of manipulative materials to help the child gain and understanding of the concepts of number, symbol, sequence, operations, and memorization of basic facts.

Music and art are vehicles for self-expression as well as areas around which to build appreciation for other modes of communication.

“a child’s work is to create the person he will become.” -Maria Montessori
