Primary First Year

At MCHVF, the morning program is designed to meet the developmental needs of children between the ages of 3 and 6. Each classroom is a beautiful, inviting, and thoughtfully arranged environment with hands-on materials created by Dr. Maria Montessori. Each material teaches a single concept or skill at a time and contain multiple levels of challenge and can be used at different developmental levels.

Each classroom is composed of children ages 3 to 6. The multiage groupings are a hallmark of the Montessori Method: younger children learn from older children; older children reinforce their learning by teaching concepts they have already mastered.

Our Primary First Year program is dedicated to 3 year olds and includes the well-defined spaces for each part of the Montessori curriculum, such as practical life, art, sensorial, language arts, math, geography, science and nature, and cultural awareness.

The program is enriched with Music, Gym, Spanish, and monthly presentations by Valley Forge Park Rangers.

The Primary First Year program is available as a Half Day option from 8:45-11:45 a.m. or a Full Day option from 8:45-2:45 for five days a week.
