Maria Montessori called her elementary curriculum “Cosmic Education.” In our elementary program we integrate the study of all subjects to show how they relate to each other. History, language, math, science, geometry, biology, zoology, and geography are all related, not isolated disciplines, and the children see the subjects in that context. The elementary program uses Dr. Montessori’s dynamic “Great Stories” to stimulate the imagination of the children and give them a jumping off point for their own exploration and research. The children are able to use concrete materials to demonstrate abstract concepts.
The goal of the elementary program is to educate the “whole child,” and in addition to the focus on core curriculum subjects the children learn an appreciation for life and for the larger world around them.
