"My 2½ year old has learned so much from her class. She can now count to 20, she knows her colors and is independent at home cleans up after eating and uses the potty by herself."
- Gita, parent of 2 students

Our Montessori Pre-Primary students are building a foundation for lifelong learning.

Parker Montessori’s Pre-Primary class serves children from 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years of age. The Pre-primary room provides a compassionate and welcoming environment for young children to gain independence, confidence, practical and social skills.

The Classroom

Our classroom is furnished with child sized tables and chairs and a comfortable reading area. The classroom has a wide variety of Montessori works in all the different areas of the classroom from practical life, math, sensorial, language, culture and science. Our playground is very spacious with a sandbox, swings, play structure and has several gardens for the classrooms to utilize.
