Welcome to Primary

3 years old – Kindergarten

Primary classrooms serve preschoolers through kindergarteners. Children work on lessons individually and in groups, with lessons moving from concrete to abstract. Students use hands-on materials in all areas of the classroom. Our environments are inviting, with child-sized furniture, orderly shelves, and materials that encourage independence.

Here at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School, we celebrate childhood, build connections, and maintain high expectations. We agree with Maria Montessori, who expressed that all children can explode into learning. We see this joyful explosion when a student grasps a new concept. I remember an early reader who gleefully discovered that she could read and then could not stop! From discovery, to proficiency, to fluency, we guided this student as she learned to read and then read to learn. As educators, we are simply inspired by these achievements.

We believe that it is never too early to introduce complex concepts and to inspire critical thinking. Our learners at all ages are empowered to seek the answers and to be responsible for their learning. Recently, in a Primary class, a story about winter developed into a conversation about the winter solstice, shortened daylight hours, and astronomy. It is our hope that your children come home with dinner conversations that cover the diverse array of curricula at St. Stephen’s.

Through being known and knowing their peers and teachers, St. Stephen’s students feel a deep sense of belonging on this small campus in a big city. We honor the power of human connections in the good times and, importantly, in the difficult times; we are here for our students in both. We celebrate birthdays, work through transitions, and always keep as central that childhood is precious and fleeting. 

We look forward to a wonderful 2022-23, full of discoveries in the classroom and laughter on the playground and to serving your children.
