We are pleased to offer an amazing educational experience to children in our Lower Elementary community (grades 1-3). This multi-aged classroom is an ideal setting to introduce the philosophy of the “Cosmic Education” as described by Maria Montessori, which utilizes The Great Lessons. At their essence, The Great Lessons are stories that present broad themes from natural and human history and spark curiosity, wonder, and a desire to learn more within the child. This approach emphasizes the interconnectedness of many things that children observe and learn, such as Math, Language, Zoology, Botany, Science, Geometry, and World Cultures.
The Great Lessons deliver an overview which invites the children to explore the disciplines in depth. Because of the unifying thread of the Great Lessons, no subject is studied in isolation from the others.
