Development 

Children coming into the elementary years begin to ask questions about themselves and the world. They ask spontaneous humanistic questions which Montessori believes are universal to all children.

    • "Where do I come from?"
    • "How does this work?"
    • "Why do anteaters have sticky tongues?"
    • "Who am I?"
    • "What is human about humans?"
    • "What are universal human needs?"
    • "How do I cooperate with the world?"
     
     

    Working with elementary class materials, Montessori students acquire confidence, skills and competency.
