Program Overview
Primary School

More About the Primary School

Children enroll in the mixed age Primary Program at age 3. For young children, the child-scaled world of the Montessori classroom invites exploration and learning. Each morning your child is welcomed by teachers and staff and greeted by classmates and friends before beginning a morning of discovery. Working in the Montessori prepared environment, with materials designed specifically for this age group, children engage in a variety of activities that teach them how to work on their own and as part of a team.

The Montessori teacher is a guide and a resource, helping your child build the confidence to take on new projects and learn new skills. The classroom is a mixed-age learning environment with children 3 to 6 years old. Preschool-Kindergarten children remain in the same morning classroom with the same teacher for their entire Greene Towne School career.
