Upper Elementary Routine

During the Upper Elementary program, your children are in a very important time of their lives from a creative and explorative standpoint. In this particular phase of the Montessori process, they will go through a lot of hands-on tasks, explore abstract concepts, and learn the basics on traditional subjects.

They’ll also participate in a lot of field trips, which are extremely important to reinforce contact with nature and expand the boundaries of the learning environment beyond the typical classroom.
