Our Pre-Primary class accepts children
2 yrs old to 3 yrs old
Peppertree's Pre-primary class offers a variety schedules.
You may choose 3 days, 4 days or 5 days a week.
Program Hours available:
School day - 8:30 to 3:00
Full day - 7:30 am to 5pm or any time between those hours, depending on your needs.
Peppertree Montessori offer a nurturing and developmentally responsive alternative
to traditional childcare.
Imagine your two-year-old setting a table for lunch;
helping to wipe up a water spill;
sweeping the floor at the end of the day.
We work together with you to master using the toilet successfully.
Children are able to stay in the Pre-Primary class
until they are comfortable with toileting.
Your spirited child will learn to wait patiently for his turn,
walk around his friend’s work rather than trampling all over it
and gain the ability to concentrate on a task
for longer and longer periods of time.

About our Pre-Primary Community
Our goal is to provide a home-like, loving environment where children’s abilities and needs are respected and met. “Help me to help myself” is the mantra of the growing toddler, and our teachers closely observe your child in order to best meet this need. The classroom is capped at 12 students who grow together into a close-knit, caring community. Our classrooms have two teachers in the environment at all times, with additional staff assisting at mealtime and transitions. This means a teacher-student ratio of 1 to 6 children at all times.
A Typical Day
Children begin the day outside in the beautiful outdoor environment created especially for them.
They transition into the classroom for a short circle time and morning work time.
Next, the children play and explore on the playground , expending extra energy before coming in and preparing for lunch.
Lunchtime encompasses many learning opportunities; the children share responsibility for setting the table and for cleaning up after meals.
After lunch, they are given the opportunity to nap or rest.
The afternoon portion of the day also provides opportunities for outside play and care of the outdoor environment.
