Primary Class

For ages 3 years old through kindergarten

The structure and curriculum for the primary class is where Montessori, Play-based Learning, and Forest Kindergarten come together.

Davidson Green School’s primary class will focus on the development of the whole child. In keeping with our overall philosophy of the school, children in the primary class will be enriched with the science, engineering, and sustainability focus of the school in a developmentally appropriate way. The primary class will also spend as much time outside as possible in the beautiful three acres surrounding the school in downtown Davidson.


The primary class consists of two options.

Primary Half is a half-day program 5 days per week. This program is for students who turn 3 or 4 on or before August 31st, and runs from 9:00 to 1:00 each day.

Primary K is kindergarten and runs for a full day, 5 days per week. This program is for students who turn 5 on or before August 31st, and runs from 9:00 to 3:00 each day.

Students must be fully potty trained before entering into the Primary classroom. (Look here for our Potty Trained Definition and Policy.) All students in the primary class eat lunch at DGS. All lunches and snacks are packed from home and must be healthy and peanut-free.
