Our Elementary level program is a six year plan of studies for children between the ages of six and twelve. They follow a traditional Montessori curriculum and philosophy. Elementary students, in what Montessori referred to as “the second plane of development”, can be characterized by their reasoning minds; their ability to abstract and imagine; and their passion for research and hands-on exploration. The Namaste Elementary school day and the learning environment are organized and structured carefully to allow for sufficient work time and to provide access to the materials needed for in-depth study and investigation. Students tend to work in small groups on a variety of projects, building skills and achieving the mastery and confidence they will one day need as productive and contributing citizens.
