It is the role of the elementary teacher to provide the child with the materials and knowledge to discover the interconnectedness of the universe, and to explore the how and the why. The elementary classroom is a community of learners, with highly trained teachers and materials that encourage active exploration and research. Through their insatiable curiosity and excitement for learning, elementary children are given the support they need to face challenges with confidence as they begin to find their place in the world. Our Montessori elementary curriculum aligns with state standards and advanced academic standards—and goes above and beyond by integrating Montessori methods and traditional learning methods throughout.
“The elementary child has reached a new level of development. Before, he was interested in things: working with his hands, learning their names. Now he is interested mainly in the how and why…the problem of cause and effect.”
– Maria Montessori
