Montessori classrooms typically span a multi-year age range, reflecting the natural development of the children according to four planes of development. Johns Creek Montessori School specializes in working with children during their first plane of development, from birth to six years of age.
In our Montessori classrooms, the children are placed in one of three levels, depending on developmental ability, readiness and social maturity. Each of these classrooms consists of children in a multi-aging grouping:
Infant: 2 months to approximately 15 months
Pre-Primary: 15/16 months to approximately 3 years
Primary: approximately 3 years to 6 years
Enrichment: all ages
