The move from toddlerhood to a primary classroom is a very important transition for a child. The Clover School’s Pre-Primary Program is designed to serve as a transitional bridge for older toddlers between the ages of 2 to 3 years old who have developed advanced verbal skills, a high level of social and emotional self-awareness, and are ready to take take the next step.

The Clover School’s Pre-Primary Montessori program introduces children to a larger classroom environment with a wider social circle, a more challenging and advanced curriculum with more intricate classroom materials to explore, more time for concentrated, focused work, and an emphasis on independence and cooperation.

The nurturing and loving Pre-Primary environment continues to provide a low child to teacher ratio (5:1, as in the Toddler classroom), while guiding children through a stimulating and engaging academic program, helping to foster and promote the acquisition of new skills and greater independence.

Our unique approach to meeting the needs of 2 to 3 year olds sets our children up for success as they make their entrance into the Montessori Primary Program (3 to 6) with confidence and enthusiasm.
