Primary

The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.   

Maria Montessori

Libertyville Montessori Primary classroom invites and creates learning experiences by providing a prepared environment with Montessori materials.  The children’s “love of learning” is encouraged by engaging in meaningful activities prepared by, and under the guidance of a certified Montessori Directress.  Our program allows the child to “learn by doing”; thus, developing concentration, motivation, independence, order, coordination, and discipline.  The Montessori primary program is designed as a three-year cycle.  Kindergarten year is highly encouraged, for this is when they will complete the full cycle of activity with the classroom materials and curriculum, as well as become leaders/role models for the younger children to look up to, building confidence and self-esteem.  Upon completion of our primary program, your child is well prepared for Elementary.
