Ages 3 to 6
This is the beginning. This is where the groundwork for the intrinsic rewards of a Montessori education is laid. Children work independently in long, unstructured work periods to develop concentration and independence. They develop fine motor control through the manipulation of concrete materials and feed their "absorbent minds" with developmentally appropriate and challenging work. They learn social skills through their interactions with multi-aged peers.
Grades 1 to 6
The Elementary program is a natural outgrowth of the Primary Program and a continuation of the Montessori philosophy of self-discovery and education. Children at the Elementary level learn to collaborate, innovate, pursue their academic and other interests with passion, and they love learning. The Elementary curriculum is centered around "cosmic education", which helps the older student learn his or her place in the universe. Students learn how to learn, and they become engaged members of their community.

The MSP Summer Program is for children ages 3-7. Blending our authentic Montessori program with summer-related activities, our summer program offers the child all kinds of opportunities for learning and fun. There are games, water activities, arts and crafts, opportunities for music and much more! Children get their school-year learning reinforced and expanded upon while also enjoying a relaxing summer filled with fun activities.
Mornings in our Summer Program resemble a typical Montessori classroom program, with children working with enjoyable materials and learning. Afternoons are slightly more relaxed, with learning opportunities mixed with games, crafts and more outdoor time.
