Children experience the joy of learning through the use of age-appropriate materials. Their expanding world includes the exercises of practical live, sensorial, language, math, geography, botany and zoology. Music, art, storytelling and movement are also an integral part of the program. Multi-age level children work and play, mutually respecting one another, as well as the environment. Self-directed learning, freedom within limits, and noncompetitive activities contribute to the child’s sense of self-esteem. Children enroll in the morning program and as their growth and overall development indicates, an invitation to join the Extended-Day class is given. Click here for tuition information!

A specially prepared environment awaits the elementary child. Children build on the self motivated learning and sheer joy of work they experienced in Children’s House class. Hands-on study within the classroom enable children to further explore the universe and its beginnings. Children make use of community resources as natural extensions of their studies.
Studies include such academic areas as math, geometry, language and literature, geography, history, botany, social studies, science and zoology. Self-esteem grows as social and personal skills develop through daily activities of the class. The ultimate aim of our Elementary Program is to guide children through mastery in their studies, equipping them with the tools necessary to live and work in harmony with one another and the world.Click here for tuition information!
