LCMS preschool

6 to 9 years old

Welcome to LCMS’s Lower Elementary Program (LEP). The LEP is designed for children between the ages of six and nine. It is an extension of the Montessori philosophy and builds upon the foundation laid in the Primary Montessori program (ages three to six).

In the Lower Elementary Montessori program, the focus is on providing a holistic education that fosters the child's natural curiosity, independence, and love of learning. The program aims to develop the child's intellectual, social, emotional, and physical capabilities through a hands-on, experiential approach.

LCMS Program

Here are some key features of our Lower Elementary Montessori program:

  • • Mixed-Age Classroom: The Lower Elementary includes a mixed-age classroom where children within the age range of six to nine years old learn together, allowing for peer learning, collaboration, and a sense of community.
  • • Prepared Environment: The classroom is carefully prepared to meet the developmental needs of the children. It is organized into different areas, including language, math, science, cultural studies, practical life, and sensorial activities. The environment is designed to encourage exploration, independence, and freedom of choice.
  • • Individualized Learning: The Montessori approach recognizes that each child learns at their own pace and has unique interests and abilities. The curriculum is designed to accommodate individual learning styles, allowing children to progress at their own speed and explore areas of interest in-depth.
  • • Hands-On Materials: Montessori classrooms are known for their use of hands-on learning materials. These materials are designed to be self-correcting, allowing children to independently discover and correct their mistakes. They provide concrete experiences that help children develop abstract thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • • Integrated Curriculum: Montessori curriculum integrates various subjects and connects them to real-world experiences. For example, a study of plants may involve botany, art, language, and geography. This interdisciplinary approach helps children see the interconnectedness of knowledge and fosters a love for learning.
  • • Freedom and Responsibility: Montessori classrooms emphasize the balance between freedom and responsibility. Children have the freedom to choose their activities within the limits set by the teacher and are responsible for completing tasks, managing their time, and respecting others' work and space.
  • • Role of the Teacher: Montessori directress serves as a guide or facilitator rather than a traditional instructor. The teacher observes each child's progress, offers individualized lessons, and provides support and guidance when needed. The goal is to foster independence and self-directed learning.
  • • Emphasis on Character Development: Along with academic skills, Montessori education places importance on the development of character traits such as respect, empathy, responsibility, and perseverance. The curriculum includes activities and discussions that promote social and emotional growth.
