Embracing the past, enriching the present, envisioning the future...

On the one hand there is the psychological reality of a child of this age, that is to say his particular needs and characteristics. On the other hand there is the answer, that of sowing the seeds of culture, which means the exploration of all subjects through appropriate materials and activities. Then there is the way, that of correlating the subjects with one another by means of the central and inspiring idea of the cosmic plan. This threefold approach constitutes the structure of the course.

For the ages 6 to 12 "subjects of instruction can become a real help to development... they are absorbed with extraordinary intensity. Thus culture becomes identifiable with the construction of the personality itself; we might say culture incarnates itself within the being and lives." Maria Montessori, Trinity College Cambridge, 1935
