Our aim in this program is to enable children to see their place in all aspects of life and develop a deeper appreciation for community and culture. In our Elementary Program, children develop a sense of responsibility, self-care, independence, and leadership. They are encouraged to support their Montessori community through caring for the immediate environment: caring for class pets and plants, ensuring the space is well-cared for. They also grow in their sense of community citizenship through regular visits to the ravine, local classes, and local businesses.
