Overview of our Lower Elementary Teachers

At Sharanalaya, our lower elementary school program provides a solid foundation for students ages 6-9.

Montessori for 6-9 Years Old

At Sharanalaya, our lower elementary program goes beyond traditional learning – we nurture life skills and character growth.

Our classrooms are designed for hands-on discovery. Students ages 6-9 learn by doing, building critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Teachers guide each child through activities tailored to their interests and emerging abilities. This fosters independence and concentration.

Importantly, we nurture emotional intelligence and compassion. Students learn to understand feelings, express them constructively, and realize how their actions impact others. This builds self-discipline and responsibility.

As they explore and create, students gain confidence to take on new challenges. Step-by-step, they uncover their passions and potential.

Our Montessori approach doesn’t just prepare your 6-9 year old for the upper grades – it shapes who they will become. Join Sharanalaya to nurture your child’s curiosity, creativity, and character.
