We believe the benefits of a five-day program are immeasurable. At Battle Creek Montessori Academy, all our policies and practices are child-centered. Children love to learn by exploring and deeply concentrating on their chosen activities. We offer them the freedom to repeat those activities without interruption until they master them. This supports a child’s natural learning process.

Preprimary Program

The BCMA Preprimary program combines children in Preschool and Kindergarten.  In this program, children ages 3-6 enjoy exploring in beautifully prepared Montessori environments.  Our classes are designed to offer individualized learning and provide the necessary Montessori materials to help each student develop skills essential for this age group.  Each classroom offers the children experiences in the practical life, sensorial, language, math and cultural (geography, history, science, music and art) areas.  The materials in these curriculum areas are self-correcting.  This enables each child to gain greater confidence and perfection through his choice and repetition.  Children gain a sense of independence as they take an active role in the Montessori environment.  Below is a list of skills students in the Preprimary program work towards developing.
