Primary School (6 to 12 years)
The Primary School years are a great period of expansion, consolidation and intellectual growth. Primary School classes at Rockingham Montessori School are separated into Lower Primary (6 to 9 years) and Upper Primary (9 to 12 years).
The program contains key learning areas as set out in the Australian Montessori Curriculum:
- Geometry and Measurement
- Science and Technology
As well as these key learning areas, the arts and physical education are part of the children’s learning experiences. The Montessori National Curriculum has been approved by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authorities (ACARA) and is well aligned with the nation’s educational goals.
