THE PRIMARY COMMUNITY
The Primary Community (ages 3 to 6 years) offers continued individual and communal opportunities for young children in daily living activities, as well as sensorial and language experiences in all areas of learning. This includes the fine arts, geography, math, the sciences, geometry, and history, and occurs in a broader environment with a wider choice of activities. Primary living involves a greater number of community members working together. Very gradual development towards abstraction during these years dictates the need for beginning writing and reading.
