"We discovered that education is not what the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being."
~Maria Montessori 

Lower Elementary 

Coming in the Fall of 2020, Lupine Montessori School is excited to offer the only Elementary Montessori program in Northern NH

(north of the notch). Like our Primary Program, our Elementary program is multi-aged and allows students to work independently and in small groups at their own pace.

 

Cosmic education was the term used by Dr. Montessori to describe the elementary curriculum. The curriculum aids the general development of the child’s understanding of his/her place in and impact on their community and the world at large. The curriculum is rich and includes: Math, language, geography, history, science and literature, music, art and foreign language. The students have time to pursue individual interests as well as attend individual and group lessons to meet learning goals/targets. 

Our Elementary program will serve children ages 1st-3rd grade. We plan on expanding one grade level each year.
