“Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed.”

Our Kindergarten year is the culmination of our 3 year program.  We consider our Kindergarten Program to be a full day session and is part of the primary curriculum. Our full day students enjoy working on their individual lesson plans as well as socializing with and mentoring their younger classmates. As leaders in the classroom, the kindergarteners enjoy privileges that come with being the oldest and most experienced students.


In addition, the kindergarteners engage in delightful activities that instill a life-long love of science, history, culture, language, math and the arts.  Our kindergarten program takes a highly visual hands-on approach to math.  Our Math Curriculum will teach your child to order numbers, write numbers and introduces your child to static addition, subtraction and multiplication.  Our Language Curriculum works to prepare children who are ready to read and provides additional challenges for those who are already reading.  Writing is also an important part of our Language curriculum.


As the child demonstrates interest and readiness they are matched to the appropriate material so that the learning experience is positive, rewarding and provides optimum learning at each stage of development.  As they leave our Kindergarten Program the children take great pride in their accomplishments, self-image and rejoice with optimism about their future.


Our Kindergarten Enrichment Program is a half day program to support the child who goes to Public School for half the day and spends the other half of the day in our Primary Program.  This program is a five day a week program and is for children who have had previous Montessori Education.
