Primary Program


Montessori Primary Class (3-6 years old) | モンテッソーリ・プライマリクラス(3-6歳)

Primary Program = CASA Class  (3 years old to 6 years old)

プライマリー・プログラム = カーサ・クラス(3歳~6歳)

Children aged three to six years possess what Dr. Montessori called the "Absorbent Mind".  The child absorbs everything directly from the surrounding environment, much like a sponge which absorbs liquid.  It is during this phase that many language and motor skills are acquired and the child reaches a point in which repetition and manipulation of materials in the environment are critical to the development of concentration, coordination, independence, and a sense of order.  The child learns the skills for everyday living, sorting, grading and classifying which all leads to the development of writing, reading, and a mathematical mind.


Dr. Montessori observed that children also experience "Sensitive Periods" in their development.  These are periods of special sensitivity when the child is attracted to certain stimulus in their environment allowing them to acquire certain knowledge and skills.


The 3 to 6 years old child is undergoing a process of self-construction.  The application of the Montessori philosophy and the specifically designed Montessori materials aids the child's ability to absorb knowledge and continue this path of self-construction.  There are five main areas in our Primary Program such as Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language and Geography & Cultural Studies.  Considerable emphasis is also placed on Creative Arts, Music and Science.
