Primary Summer Program
Our summer Primary program is for registered Prairie Flower children only. Children entering the Primary class in September for the first time are also eligible. This program is a more relaxed continuation of our Montessori curriculum. The children are able to take advantage of our beautiful outdoor environment and can do more outside work in the garden and chicken yard, go hiking to see the neighbor’s horses, and explore all the flower and fauna in our pond, woodland and meadows.
Elementary Summer Program
Our Elementary Summer Camp is for children who have completed a three year primary cycle of work. It builds on the Montessori foundation they have received and is offered for graduates who are entering lst,2nd, and 3rd grades. Older alumni are eligible when space is available. Each summer’s experience builds on the previous one.
This camp offers elementary children the five great lessons of the Montessori Elementary Curriculum which will lead them to a deeper awareness of the universe and our Earth. The time lines of: Creation, Life on Earth, Story of Humans, Story of mathematics and the Story of Written Language are told. The children work in groups on projects of interest. A culmination activity is presented to their parents and the Primary children at the end of the camp.
