Primary Program (3 years – 6 years)

The primary classroom at iGrow Montessori caters to children aged between 3 years and 6 years. “Freedom” is an absolute necessity for this age group. We allow children to choose the work and activities that were presented to them by their teachers. You will see children walking around the classroom, observing other children’s work, picking up materials from the shelf, working with the materials as long as they want, and putting them back in their respective places. Children enjoy the freedom of choice “within the limits” which in turn helps them to master their activities and inculcates self-discipline within them.

Montessori activities are focused on helping children develop concentration, observation, and problem-solving skills and lay a strong foundation for academic work. Primary children develop unique characteristics like imagination, reasoning, curiosity, a sense of justice, and identifying themselves in a group. Our environment and curriculum help the child satisfy these sensitivities in the child. The classroom is designed to encourage each child to move around, touch, and manipulate the materials. The child has the freedom to work independently, based on their initiative with calm and polite guidance from their teacher.

The mixed age group class helps the younger and older children to benefit from each other – younger children learn activities from the older children, and it helps the older child to become responsible and confident, which also builds leadership qualities within the child. Our curriculum is highly individualized and includes Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics, and Cultural Subjects.

The Montessori teacher engages the child purposefully in a wide variety of activities. They will choose to present the right material and the activity that will directly appeal to and respond to the child’s development and interests. The child would practice working with the material, and the teacher carefully observes the child’s progress and presents a new lesson once the child is ready. Under the supervision of Montessori teacher, children learn to cultivate concentration, become self-motivated learners, and develop a love for learning.

Our goal for primary-aged children is to build conceptual knowledge using Montessori materials. Our tailored curriculum includes distinct skill-based lessons with the support of appropriate materials in the classroom. Our experienced and well-trained Montessori teachers support each child’s progress and present new learning challenges to each child when they are ready. This vertical grouping creates a powerful and cohesive learning environment.

Our daily work in the classroom is clearly defined by our challenging Montessori curriculum, composed of Language, Mathematics, Practical Life, Sensorial, and Cultural Studies (geography, history, botany, zoology, and art). All of these areas emphasize independence, concentration, coordination, order, and a love of learning. Children in this class will begin to read, write, and build a solid foundation in language and math skills. Your child will also have the opportunity to explore gardening and engage in physical activity with their friends.

Children are always eager to take up complex tasks and try to accomplish them. Our teachers support the enthusiasm of the children and challenge them with interesting indoor and outdoor activities. iGrow Montessori will be conducting two Parent-Teacher conferences during an academic year, however, parents can meet their teachers during any working day with a prior appointment.
