YOUNG CHILDREN'S COMMUNITY

 The Young Children's Community (ages 18 months to 3 years) provides individual and communal opportunities for very young children to gain experience in independence, coordination, organization, and concentration through daily living activities: toileting, dressing, food preparation, eating, plant and animal care, etc. Experiencing other sensorial and language activities, encompassing all areas of learning also assists the children in gaining independence.

 

 The Primary Community (ages 3 to 6 years) offers continued individual and communal opportunities for young children in daily living activities, as well as sensorial and language experiences in all areas of learning. This includes the fine arts, geography, math, the sciences, geometry, and history, and occurs in a broader environment with a wider choice of activities. Primary living involves a greater number of community members working together. Very gradual development towards abstraction during these years dictates the need for beginning writing and reading.

PRIMARY COMMUNITY

YOUNGER ELEMENTARY

COMMUNITY

 The Younger Elementary Community (ages 6  to 9 years) guides all utilize the Montessori tradition of instruction. This allows children to learn and be helped on an individual basis. This learning establishes more intimate contact between the child, guide, and work. The Elementary program integrates elements from the primary program (imagination, abstraction, language, socialization) with advanced cultural exploration in the arts, sciences, and the Universe.

 
 

 The Older Elementary Community (ages 9 to 12 years) guides all utilize the Montessori tradition of instruction. This allows children to learn and be helped on an individual basis. This learning establishes more intimate contact between the child, guide, and work. The Elementary program integrates elements from the primary program (imagination, abstraction, language, socialization) with advanced cultural exploration in the arts, sciences, and the Universe.

THE ADOLESCENTCOMMUNITY

 The Adolescent Community (ages 12 to 14 years) at PRAIRIE HILL deepen their studies of the traditional academic subjects through intense group discussions and individual research. They have practice in presenting in front of a group, scheduling visits outside of school to learn about real world applications, and are guided to maintain important short term and long term planning and goals for their academic work.
