Nature's Child Montessori enrolls children 3 years old and toilet trained  to about 6-7 years old.  Montessori tends to go by the child                  
rather than a grade level label.  Children are at different levels of abilities in different areas.  
Maria Montessori's idea of the integrated age classroom shows the effects on learning and caring in the classroom.  Older children
learn leadership skills and younger children learn quickly from the modeling and observation of  older children.   
Caring for our environment, cleaning up after ourselves, learning good manners and how to work with others with respect is also                     
part of our learning world.
