Elementary Program Ages 6 to 11 (Grade 1–Grade 4)
The elementary years can be an exciting time for both you as a parent and your child. Children begin to develop their independence at home and in the classroom. They become more social and must be taught proper interpersonal skills. Schoolwork now involves the teaching of more difficult academic concepts (sometimes even for you!). At this phase, your child learns how to learn.
Here at Red Oaks, we’ll make sure you and your child are well-prepared for these years. Our Elementary program introduces multiple learning styles while relying on our integrated curriculum and Montessori methods to provide learning continuity and to invite students to take ownership of their learning. We’ll encourage your child to explore ideas across disciplines and make thought-provoking connections. Our teachers — the majority of whom are trained in the Montessori program — will match appropriate lessons and materials to the unique abilities, interests and readiness of your child. They will work closely with your child to develop appropriate social skills and responsibilities within the community.
