Preschool (Primary)


Like all preschools, our program requires a degree of independence from students in order for them to have a positive experience.  Even though each of our Primary classrooms is well staffed with a lead teacher and two assistants, students need to be able to manage many self-care tasks on their own.  In general, children enrolled in our Primary program should be able to feed and dress themselves as well as be independent in the toileting process.  By this we mean that students can manage their bathrooming needs independently, and that they have been accident-free for at least one month prior to enrollment at Free Horizon Montessori.  Our Primary program is licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services as a preschool.  As such, we are not permitted to have diapers or disposable underwear at school - including at nap time.

In general, children starting preschool should be able to work and play independently for short periods, to focus on one task or project for several minutes, to follow simple instructions, and to sit still for a few minutes for lessons and circle time.

How Will I Know When My Child Is Ready for Preschool? 

Refinement & Internalization

The Primary program serves children age three to six.  The plane of the Absorbent Mind is characterized by the time during which a child's mind is like a sponge, absorbing all that is within the environment.  Materials, lessons, and experiences within the Primary classroom are designed to compliment the sensitive periods for development of order, language acquisition, refinement of the senses, and movement.  Characterized by concrete thinking and fundamental formation of character, children endeavor to work independently within a structured environment doing real activities with an intelligent purpose and strive for independence: "I can do it myself!"
