 Preschool / Kindergarten Program (2-6 Years)


Our early childhood classrooms are designed to meet the ever changing needs of the 2.5 to 6 year old child. Beauty and order play important roles in creating the child size atmosphere which is carefully designed to encourage curiosity and a love for learning.

LA First Montessori School offers each child the opportunity:
• To develop a solid academic foundation and desire for lifelong learning
• To encourage independent decision making and problem solving skills
• To become an integral member of the classroom community
• To develop positive social, emotional and physical growth in a respectful environment

A typical day for a young student includes time when the class gathers together in a circle to sing songs, and learn about something new; perhaps the topic is dinosaurs or how to greet a friend with a handshake. Children in a primary Montessori classroom learn to maneuver about their classroom with confidence, exploring concepts in arithmetic, reading and writing, geography, science and activities of daily life such as preparing their own snack or washing dishes. Children learn skills in grace and courtesy, naturally caring and teaching each other, respecting the classroom activities and learning to clean up after themselves. Each school day includes active outside play time on our safe and child friendly play areas.
