Lower Elementary Curriculum
Gold Material Montessori School’s curriculum was developed as an integrated whole to serve the developmental needs of children from ages 5 to 8. In our Lower Elementary program we combines Kindergarten with 1st grades and 2nd with 3rd grades in multi-age classrooms.
Our curriculum allows students to build social skills in a supportive, respectful environment and to stretch themselves academically to their full potential. The work in Lower Elementary is done with extensive Montessori Materials allowing children not only to experience the depth and breadth of the curriculum, but also to become comfortable with their own learning styles. The continuity of the curriculum allows individual children to move though the various subjects areas at the pace that is best for them, building confidence and genuine self-esteem. Hands-on math, science and language arts are the cornerstones of our comprehensive Montessori based curriculum in our Lower Elementary program.
We also aligned our school’s curriculum with New York State common core standards.
