Primary (3-5-year-old students)

Most children enter MMS at age 3, 4, or 5 years old (kindergarten) for our Children’s House Primary program.

Children’s House Primary is a time of joyful discovery. Children are exploring their world and gaining control of their bodies; they are learning how to be independent, how to make appropriate choices, how to organize information. Their personality is emerging. The Primary program is nurturing; children find their passions, learn to respect and listen to others and develop the basis for academic and social skills according to their own timetable. In our Primary classrooms, children pursue a variety of activities. This is their “work,” and they learn from an early age that “work” is not drudgery, but a satisfying, often joyous pursuit.  It can mean practicing a skill, creating artwork, exploring patterns and making connections, collaborating with friends on building projects or solving problems, or taking care of their classroom environment.

Primary Schedule

In the mornings, students learn in mixed-age classrooms from 8:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m. In the afternoon, there are optional extended afternoon programs (12:15-3 p.m.) offered to three-year-olds and four-year-olds (grouped by age). Kindergarten students continue the afternoon with their classroom teachers and are dismissed at 3 p.m. This year is an important culminating period for students, where they are mastering new skills, diving deeper into math and language lessons, and leading younger children by example.
