Primary Program (3-6 years)
Lectura's approach to educating primary and kindergarten children is developed from Maria Montessori's principle to cultivate a level of independence, responsibility, respect and love of learning in the child. The curriculum at Lectura is unique in its approach to education because it blends various teaching techniques to enrich each child's school experience.
Children in our primary program can expect to develop skills in the following areas:
Language Immersion (Spanish)
Geography / Social Studies
Music and Movement
We place an emphasis on providing an environment that encourages young learners to become fluent readers in English and Spanish. They naturally work within all of the areas of the Montessori curriculum and programs while speaking Spanish.

Lectura offers programs for children ages 3 to 6. The classrooms are comprised of mixed groups following the Montessori philosophy.
Our curriculum program includes these components:

Lectura Montessori promotes a balanced daily educational routine for our students. Our daily schedule provides an environment that exposes students to both Spanish and English languages daily. This method allows our students exposure to both languages developing bi-lingual learners. Fluent Spanish is spoken during our morning session and English in the afternoon.
By immersing these languages into our daily program, the students native language is nurtured and non-native language speakers are developed.
