Primary Immersion Lower Elementary 6-9

At Chia Seed, our lower elementary students embark on a journey of hands-on learning tailored to their unique interests and abilities. Guided by the Montessori philosophy, our program fosters self- directed exploration and a genuine passion for learning in each child. Here's a closer look at how our curriculum unfolds across different subjects:


Through collaborative learning, children within our preschool program will learn skills for practical life, refinement of their senses, language, and mathematics, and hands-on opportunities in areas ranging from physical science to history. This unique approach allows your child to develop skills that will foster incredible success throughout their lifetime.Our individual curriculum includes:

Our mathematics curriculum covers not only the foundational operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division

but also delves into advanced topics like fractions, decimals, and mathematical reasoning. We ensure students grasp not just the calculations but also the language and symbols of mathematics, fostering a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.



Our social studies curriculum immerses students in diverse cultures, historical events, and geographical regions, with a special emphasis on China and its rich heritage. Through interactive lessons and cultural celebrations, students gain a broader understanding of global perspectives and develop empathy and respect for cultural diversity.


Our approach to language arts goes beyond rote memorization of grammar and spelling rules. Instead, we embed these

concepts within historical contexts, providing meaningful reasons and explanations for language conventions. We emphasize clear and effective communication, encouraging students to express themselves creatively through various written forms such as reports, letters, poetry, and drama.



In science, students embark on exciting explorations of biology, earth science, physics, and environmental studies through interactive

experiments, nature walks, and observation exercises. They cultivate a curious mindset, learning to pose questions, develop hypotheses, and conduct investigations.

From arts and music to athletics and technology, our

enrichment programs provide students with opportunities to explore their passions and develop new skills.

The character and peace education aspect of the Montessori curriculum may not have tangible materials, but its influence is deeply woven into the fabric of the learning environment. It starts with the practical life activities, where children learn to care for themselves and their surroundings, fostering a sense of responsibility and respect. Grace and courtesy exercises explicitly teach social skills, nurturing a harmonious classroom atmosphere. The sensorial, mathematics, and language materials enhance children's understanding of the world and their ability to communicate effectively within their community. Cultural studies, science, and arts components provide a global perspective, encouraging children to see the world as interconnected and promoting a sense of unity. Together, these elements create a curriculum that not only cultivates academic knowledge but also nurtures good character, empathy, and a peaceful mindset.
