Primary Division (PK-K)

The design of the Casady Curriculum moves students thoughtfully and intentionally in support of our Portrait of a Graduate with the goal of inspiring young people to become individuals possessed with a conviction to honor, to learn, to engage, to innovate, to serve, and to thrive.
The Primary Division is Montessori-based, integrating the School’s mission of educating mind, body, and spirit with the development of the whole child.  The curriculum areas are Language, Sensorial and Mathematics, and Practical Life. Enrichment opportunities include Art, Spanish, Library, Science, Cooking, Cultural Studies, Geography, and Storytelling.
Abundant materials and resources in this prepared environment provide multi- sensory learning opportunities and challenges for all Primary students in mixed age groups. The faculty works with children in individualized or small-group lessons to assist a child’s cognitive, social, and motor development and to help develop thinking skills and a love of learning.
We prioritize individual instruction and offer our students the freedom of choice, within limits. We seek to balance developmentally appropriate academic instruction, and support the growth of our student’s social emotional development, while working towards fostering a sense of order, concentration, coordination and independence.
