THE CHILDREN’S HOUSE
Ages 3 to 6 years
“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”Maria Montessori
The Children’s House or Primary classrooms are designed to meet the needs and interests of children during the pre-school years. The curriculum is designed as a three-year cycle, with each child developing their potential over the span of years, encouraged to be curious questioners that love to learn.
Students in the Children’s House complete the cycle ready to enter an elementary classroom.
Each Children’s House environment incorporates the five core Montessori curriculum areas for this age group – practical life, sensorial, math, language and culture. The classrooms offer a rich environment that encourages exploration and offers opportunities for collaborative learning.
Students at CMS enjoy nature-based outdoor learning in their classroom backyard gardens, school playground and across our 18-acre campus.
The Children’s House classroom is led by a Montessori trained Guide with 1 Assistant to support the children’s work in the environment. Students in the Children’s House are guaranteed placement in our elementary program.
