Multi-age children learn from one another. They learn to concentrate, listen and express themselves. This classroom has a ratio of 5:1. Children at this K-1 level are introduced to a combination of Montessori principles, modern learning techniques and good, old-fashioned academics. Emphasis is placed on our phonetic reading program to bring about and encourage early readers.

The Ginn Reading Program from England is introduced, providing a structured approach to the development of higher reading skills. Math skills are presented through a wealth of manipulatives, from Montessori material, Mancala, cowrie shells, using the outdoor environment counting trees and Belgium blocks, and more.

Our multi-age children enjoy our sea life corner–so very special in nurturing a life-long curiosity toward the sea and its many treasures. Counting and sizing seashells…a fascinating learning tool!
