Caterpillars and Sprouts
Ages 8 weeks to 15 months
Infants enrolled in Nido (the nest) receive emotional nurturing and an environment that promotes their very real need to learn (physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively).
Infants walking independently and self-feeding transition to our toddler community at 15 months.

Toddler Classrooms are rich with experiences that are critical to a child's personality, social and intellectual development. Our prepared Montessori environments include activities that are appropriate for the earliest stages of development.
Areas of development include: Sensory and Perceptual development, Motor development, Self-Help Skills (including toileting), Language development, and Social/Emotional development. Children typically transition to a Primary community between 2.5 and 3 years, and when toileting independently.
Lotus and Magnolia
3 to 6 years
The child’s natural desire to learn is cultivated in Montessori Primary classrooms. Experiencing the excitement of learning at one's own pace with beautiful, hands-on materials, where independence and freedom are fostered and encouraged are at the heart of the Montessori experience. The six areas of the classroom are: Practical Life (independence- building skills), Sensorial, Language, Math, Geography, and Art. Children benefit most from the Primary environment when they complete the 3-year cycle, which includes the kindergarten year.
6 to 12 years
The elementary program offers a continuum built on the Primary experience. The academically rich and stimulating environment reflects the needs of children in the Second Plane of development. The Elementary experience includes, community service, gardening, micro-economy studies, collaboration with a metro sister school and travel.
