Exploring the Primary Years, Morning Session
Will your toddler transition into a Primary classroom this summer or next school year? If so, we encourage you to join us for this parent program designed exclusively for you! (If you can’t make this morning session, please consider joining us for our evening session.)
Join Rhea Egbert, director of admission, Nancy Hofer, associate head of school, and Brooke Juneau, toddler faculty, for this information session focused on what to expect and how to support your child as they transition from their Toddler to Primary years. Rhea and Nancy both hold their American Montessori Society (AMS) Early Childhood teaching certifications and are experts in childhood development from 2.5 to 6 years of age. During your time together, they will review the key elements of a Primary classroom (and why it’s different from a Toddler classroom), the three-year cycle from 3 to 6 years old, and the changing developmental needs of your child as they grow. The session will conclude with a guided tour of our Primary classrooms in action.
More about our Primary Program
Primary classrooms are for students who are 3, 4, and 5 at the beginning of the school year. The educational program for a Primary classroom at Greensboro Montessori School is distinguished by a core curriculum where each child acquires and applies a breadth of skills during the three-year learning cycle from 3 to 6 years old. Well-planned lessons are presented in a carefully prepared educational environment filled with specifically designed, age-appropriate learning materials. Our trained and certified Montessori teachers create opportunities for children to learn and achieve at a rate which meets their particular needs and allows their talents to emerge. The Primary program encourages preschool- and Kindergarten-age children to explore, cooperate, and attain academic and social independence. The acquired skills are intended to prepare each child for success, not only at the next academic level, but also in life.
