Lower Elementary Education (6-9 Years) at Sharanalaya

Nurturing Curiosity – The Montessori Way

The lower elementary phase at Sharanalaya is a transformative period where children transition from the concrete to the abstract. Building on their primary foundation, students in this phase are introduced to more complex concepts, while still retaining the Montessori essence of self-directed learning.

Characteristics of the Lower Elementary Child

Children in the lower elementary age group are marked by their burgeoning curiosity and increasing independence. They begin to ask “why” and “how,” seeking deeper understanding and connections. Their social interactions become more nuanced, and they start to understand the complexities of relationships and group dynamics.

The Interactive Environment – Montessori Pedagogy

The Montessori classroom for lower elementary students is designed to foster interaction, exploration, and discovery. It’s a space where children can work individually or in groups, delving into subjects that pique their interest. The environment is both nurturing and challenging, ensuring that every child feels supported yet stimulated.
