18 through 36 months
Our Toddler program introduces children to purposeful work, through activities that inspire curiosity, and build confidence. Children have the opportunity to develop their gross and fine motor skills within a social environment that fosters the basic principles of grace and courtesy.
3 through 6 years
Our Primary program offers a unique, mixed-age classroom environment, for children approximately 3 to 6 years old. The curriculum encourages self-guided learning through purposeful work. Children collaborate with one another and are supported to learn at their own rhythm while our Guides provide opportunities to build confidence and a love of learning.
18 months through age 13
Our Summer Programs at SGM feature a variety of activities designed around a focused theme each week.
The core Montessori principles of independence, respect and responsibility for children are woven throughout the curriculum.
There are many opportunities for children to engage in both self-directed activities & cooperative play.
