Through sensory experiences, our Primary Program helps children to distinguish, categorize and relate new information to what they already know. They learn math with concrete materials. They construct words with the movable alphabet, then they can progress to nuances of the English language, function of words and grammar. Our Primary curriculum is broad and includes:
