Primary Program

Join us! Now enrolling for the 2015-2016 Academic Year in the following programs:

The Montessori curriculum is an integrated, holistic approach that is designed to help each child reach his or her full potential. Children aged 2 ½ to 7 are sensorial explorers, forming their intellects by absorbing their environment, their language and their culture. The Primary classroom provides a prepared environment that allows the child to respond to their natural tendency to work.

This environment includes four distinct areas. Practical life teaches care of self and the environment, exercises of grace and courtesy, and coordination of physical movement. With sensorial materials, children learn to order and classify by touching, seeing, smelling, tasting, listening, and exploring. Mathematics helps children understand abstract concepts by working with concrete manipulatives. The Language area teaches oral and written language, vocabulary, reading, and grammar.

At Renaissance, our Primary environment has an additional Atrium section where the child’s spiritual development is nurtured through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a method grounded in prayer, scripture, liturgy, and the Montessori method.
