The Sunflower Elementary Program
Grades 1 - 5.
Our Elementary program is expanding one grade higher every year!
The Montessori method meets each child right where they are and takes them as far as they can go. This is especially evident in our Sunflower Elementary Program, a highly individualized and rigorous
Elementary students build on skills and advanced concepts learned in Kindergarten and the previous school year such as:
Making snacks from scratch
Setting the tables for candlelight lunches
Reading and parts of speech.
Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, skip counting, cubing, and working towards mastery of fractions and the decimal system are introduced and worked on daily.
All of these activities use innovative hands-on materials that allow each child to be challenged in every area according to their abilities.
We don't stop with academic and practical life lessons. At CCM, we take every opportunity to spark the creativity and imagination of our students.
Field trips, walks to the park across the street, student-led presentations, and even scavenger hunts help students connect with the world around them.
The Sunflower elementary students also have access to a variety of learning enrichment programs:
Day in the Life: A Sunflower Elementary Student
Montessori: The Elementary Years, American Montessori Society

We also have our optional Early Bird Session 7:30-8:15 a.m.
